The Executive Vice-Chairman/Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC), Babatunde Irukera has broken his silence after he was sacked by President Bola Tinubu.

Irukera expressed gratitude for the opportunity to serve Nigerians.

He was appointed by the former President Muhammadu Buhari as director-general of Consumer Protection Council (CPC) in April 2017 before the agency was renamed FCCPC.

Until his removal on Monday evening, he was serving his second and final tenure in office.

On his verified ‘X’ handle Monday night, he tweeted: “Grateful for the opportunity to have served the incredibly vibrant & loyal Nigerian citizens/consumers.

“They deserve a better deal. I leave behind a strong Institutional advocate in the FCCPC, & an outstanding team of soldiers who work there daily for the cause of fair markets.”
