President Muhammadu Buhari has sacked the Director-General of the National Broadcasting Commission, Prof. Armstrong Idachaba.
The president approved the appointment of Balarabe Shehu Ilelah as Idachaba’s replacement on Friday.
Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, announced the appointment in a statement issued in Abuja.
