Power Tussle Caused Nnaji's Removal - GEJ by pingpong1: 9:28pm On Sep 05, 2012
The President reconstitutes
membership of two presidential
committees on Power
Former Minister of Power, Bart Nnaji,
lost his job due to a power tussle he
had with the Special Adviser to
President Goodluck Jonathan on Power,
Reynolds Dagogo-Jack.
This was alluded to by the person who
appointed both men, Mr. Jonathan.
The President gave this hint on
Wednesday during the inauguration of
a reconstituted Presidential Task Force
(PTF) on power.
Until his ouster, Mr. Nnaji was the PTF
Chairman by virtue of his position as
Minister, while Mr. Dagogo-Jack,
doubled as Secretary of the task force
and Special Adviser to the Minister of
Power.
“We have done it (re-constitute the task
force) this way, because the other time
when Nnaji was the Chairman, the
Secretary (Dagogo-Jack) was my own
Special Adviser and he was also his
Special Adviser, and there was a lot of
conflicts between the two of them,
because they said two captains cannot
drive the same ship.” the President said
“This time around, we want one captain
and they (members of the task force)
will work with him,” the president
added.
The President said he would personally
preside over the Presidential Action
Committee (PAC) on Power as
Chairman, with the Vice President,
Namadi Sambo, as Deputy Chairman,
while Mr. Dagogo-Jack would be given
the chance to realise his long-fought
wish to become the Chairman of the
Presidential Task force (PTF) in the new
dispensation.
