Enoch Ogun, the acting Postmaster General of the Federation have been relieved of his duties and to be replaced by Balami, who before his appointment was DPMG, Special Duties.
The ongoing internal rancour between the Minister of Communications, Adebayo Shittu, and the Nigerian Postal Service over the collection of stamp duty took a new dimension on Tuesday as the Federal Government fired the acting Postmaster General of the Federation, Enoch Ogun.
Trouble started for Ogun when on Tuesday he was summoned to the Ministry of Communications with his Deputy Postmaster General. At the meeting which was presided over by the Permanent Secretary in the ministry, Mr. Sonny Echeno, Ogun was told that the minister had approved his retirement and had directed that he should hand over to the most senior officer in the organisation, Dr. Richard Balami.
Although Ogun was due to retire from NIPOST by the end of December 2015, he was directed to remain in office until a substantive Postmaster General was appointed.
