The national assembly had asked the president to take back his decision sacking Arugungu whom it appeared was on their side during a row with Keyamo during the recruitment for the scheme.
But the president did not consider the appeal of the federal lawmakers.
In his statement, Shehu said Fikpo will be in charge of the agency till a substantive DG is appointed.
“President Muhammadu Buhari has formally conveyed to the Hon. Minister of State, Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, SAN, his approval of the nomination of Mallam Abubakar Nuhu Fikpo as the Acting Director-General of the National Directorate of Employment pending the appointment of a substantive Director-General for the Agency,” the statement read.
“Last month, the President relieved the former DG of the agency of his appointment, and directed the Minister to nominate an Acting DG to superintend over the Agency pending the appointment of a substantive DG.”
