Why Rotimi Amaechi ensured my removal from office — Former NPA boss, Hadiza Bala Usman
The immediate former Managing Director of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), Hadiza Bala Usman, has revealed that former Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi ensured she was removed from the position because she did not give him a birthday gift.
Usman, who made the revelation in her new book, titled “Stepping on Toes: My Odyssey at the Nigerian Ports Authority” said that many notable Nigerians met with Amaechi in an attempt to resolve the issue between them shortly after she was asked to “step aside” in May 2021 but all the efforts failed.
The Governors’ team met with the Minister to discuss a resolution of the matter. He insisted that my management of the NPA had to be investigated due to the amount unremitted to the CRF.
He told another person who tried to intervene that I was so selfish that did nothing for the NPA & never even gave him a birthday present!
