They are the Executive Director, Finance and Investment, Mr Jasper Ikedi Azusalam; Executive Director, Operations, Mrs Olukemi Nelson, and Executive Director, Administration, Alhaji Tijani Darazo Sulaiman.
Their suspension, according to the ministry, was due to the preliminarily established prima facie infractions of the Financial Regulations and Procurement Act and other acts of gross misconduct.
