Premium Times reports that eight out of the  fourteen members of the board signed a resolution approving Ibrahim’s suspension.

The board members accused the embattled chairman of making requests for reimbursements which were false.

A statement from the board said “The coordinating committee has, therefore, resolved unanimously that you be suspended as chair of the coordinating committee and executive committee of TMG pending investigations of the above allegations levelled against you.

“You are required to hand over to the vice chair all TMG property in your possession with immediate effect.”

The spokesperson of the group condemned the action of the board members saying “We have a 16-member board and eight cannot take such a drastic action.

“Their action is in complete nullity and I will urge the general public to ignore the jokers and continue to see TMG as a honourable organisation that will continue to work for a better Nigeria.”

Meanwhile, Ibrahim has dismissed the board’s purported resolution suspending him saying only a national congress can remove him from office.

He said “They are only making a mockery of themselves because the TMG is a strong institution that was properly constituted.

“So these guerrilla tactics of those purporting to have dismissed me from office are in vain.”

The Transition Monitoring Group (TMG) is coalition of over 400 civil societies whose vision is to promote democracy and good governance in Nigeria,
