Abuja - The Nigeria Prisons Service (NPS) has announced that the Controller-General of the NPS, Ja’afaru Ahmed, has approved the retirement of a Deputy Controller-General Aminu Suley and Assistant Controller-General Ali Bala Salami following an “emergency meeting” allegedly held on June 27th, 2016.
The announcement according to Saharareporters is coming only days after it was alleged that Ahmed falsified his age in order to continue being employed in the NPS.
It was gathered in the NPS, that in 2011 and 2012, Ahmed had his date of birth listed in official documents as July 21, 1957. However, in 2015, documents began to show that he was born two years later—on July 21, 1959—thus prolonging the length of his employment.
During this “emergency meeting,” which was not elaborated on in Enobore’s press statement, Aminu Suley, and Ali Bala Salami were retired by Ahmed.
According to the same documents used to show how Ahmed falsified his age, Suley’s birthday is listed as September 1, 1958, with an appointment to the NPS on November 29, 1982.
Salami, according to these same documents, was born on August 25, 1959, and appointed to the NPS on August 22, 1984.
This means that both Suley and Salami are younger than Ahmed, had his birthday not suddenly changed as he neared retirement.
