Abuja - President Goodluck Jonathan on Tuesday sacked Martin Luther Agwai as Chairman of the federal government’s Subsidy Reinvestment and Empowerment Programme (SURE-P), reports The Cable.

At the lecture, Agwai, a retired general and former Chief of Army Staff, said change in leadership had become inevitable in the country.
