I Was Removed For Questioning NPA Operations – Garba



Following the removal of the MD of NPA, a former member of the Board of Nigerian Ports Authority, NPA, Senator Binta Masi Garba, has revealed that her questioning of the operations of the agency led to her removal.

Garba released a statement to clarify the reason she was axed from the board of the NPA. According to her, she was pushed out of the board for questioning a decision by the MD.

The statement read: ‘’I was appointed into the board of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) sometime in March 2020. In January 2021, Sen. John Akpanudoedehe and I were removed from the board and our removal was clearly orchestrated by the leadership of NPA. ‘’Before my removal, I was not comfortable with the way the board and authority were run. I consistently expressed my discomfort and displeasure with the way the MD was running the place and this, I have no iota of doubt in my mind made her to orchestrate my removal from the board. ‘’Note, I was removed without the knowledge of the supervising ministry/Minister of Transportation, which was very uncommon. ‘

’My observations and complaints with the suspended NPA MD were more with the financial statements of NPA and I worried that if she continued so, there would certainly be trouble and her sudden removal (suspension) would be inevitable.  I noted discrepancies, I raised observations, I asked questions but I was completely ignored and disregarded. Answers were never provided, until my removal. ‘’When the board came in, its first meeting was in June 2020,with the aim of deliberating on the financial report. I made some observations on the report which, obviously, the MD, Hadiza Bala Usman, was not comfortable with.
