According to Daily Trust, Michael Akabogu, the Managing Director of the Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF), has been relieved of his duties.
The reason for the change was not made public, but it was learned that his dismissal was not unrelated to the alleged forgery of his National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Discharge Certificate.
According to a reliable source at the fund, he was asked to step aside pending the outcome of a police investigation.
“Yes, he has been asked to step aside,” an official of the fund, who pleaded anonymity said.
The embattled NSITF boss with discharge certificate number: A030544, was invited by the police after a criminal complaint against him was forwarded to the Nigerian police.
