President Muhammadu Buhari has removed the Chairman of the Governing Board of the Nigerian Copyright Commission, Dr Tony Jaja.

This is contained in a notice shared with journalists by the spokesperson for the Attorney-General of the Federation, Dr Umar Gwandu, on Monday.

The document which was signed by the Solicitor-General of the Federation and Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Justice, Mr Dayo Apata (SAN), was dated October 15, 2020.

Titled, ‘Notice of your removal as Chairman, Governing Board of the Nigerian’, the notice referred to an earlier letter dated September 28, 2020 which was said to have conveyed to Jaja the approval of the President for his sacking.
