Dr. Paul Adalikwu becomes Acting DG, NTDC

Dr. Paul Adalikwu has been appointed as the new Acting Director-General of Nigerian Tourism Development Corporation (NTDC).
He takes over from the former acting DG, Mrs. Mariel Rae-Omoh who was sacked two months into her appointment.

Adalikwu is the third Acting DG after the removal of the immediate past Director-General of the corporation, Sally Mbanefo.
Minister of Information and Culture Lai Mohammed has asked a committee to look into the crisis in the Corporation following the receipt of a petition.
According to sources, 15 senior officials, who were arbitrarily promoted in defiance of civil service rules, were demoted by the Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation because their elevation was not in line with the civil service rules.

The measures were in line with the restructuring of the corporation, which has been involved in crisis in the past few months.
Also, Mariel Rae-Omoh, was directed to revert to her former status. Meanwhile, Dr. Adalikwu appointment as substantive DG is based on the confirmation of President Muhammadu Buhari.
