Mailafia resigns from NIPSS

A former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Dr. Obadiah Mailafia, has resigned his appointment at the National Institute of Policy and Strategic Studies.

A member of his legal team and the Jos branch chairman of the Nigerian Bar Association, Mr. Yakubu Bawa, confirmed the development to our correspondent in Jos on Tuesday.

Bawa said, “It is true that he has resigned from the NIPSS as a directing staff. It appears that the powers that be are not happy with him since his public condemnation of the killings going on in Southern Kaduna and other parts of the country.

“So, he has to resign but we are not bothered because they need him more than he needs them.”

Mailafia, a former presidential candidate of the African Democratic Congress, is being investigated by the Department of State Services over his claim during an interview he granted a radio station that an unnamed northern governor was the commander of Boko Haram.

After he was invited twice to the Jos office of the DSS, the police authorities asked him to appear at their Abuja office on Monday, but Mailafia declined to honour the invitation and also went to court to challenge it.
