Buhari sacks Nigerian Copyright Commission chairman, Jaja


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

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.

The notice ordered the sacked Chairman to immediately hand over the property of the commission in his custody to the Director-General, John Asein.


Jaja was inaugurated for a four-year tenure along with other members of he NCC board in May 2019.


His sacking came about two and a half years into his tenure.
