President Trump Dismiss His Nigerian Adviser

Trump Sacks His Nigerian Adviser
Adebayo Ogunlesi

Nigerian born international CEO, Adebayo Ogunlesi has now ceased to be an adviser to embattled US President Donald Trump. Trump sacked him today along with other distinguished CEOs counselling him via two councils on how to “Make America Great Again”.

Trump sacked Ogunlesi on Twitter, when  he announced the dissolution of two business advisory councils, in one fell swoop.  Ogunlesi was a member of  the Strategic and Policy Forum, one of the two disbanded by the unpredictable president.

Below is his tweet:

The other group was the Manufacturing Jobs Initiative Council.  Ogunlesi, heads Global Infrastructure Partners, a private equity firm and one of Fortune 500 companies. He was  the only African on the panel.

The New York Times reported before Trump’s tweeted dissolution, that members of Ogunlesi’s panel were debating dissolving the body entirely as Trump wallowed deeper into bigotry quagmire. But Trump preempted their move.
