Barely few hours after touring government departments, where he warned Civil servants to take their job seriously and avoid unproductive work behaviors, Gambia’s Secretary General and Head of the Civil Service Habib Drammeh, has been fired with immediate effect, the Freedom Newspaper can reveal. Mr. Drammeh received his marching orders today. He has been replaced by Ebrima Camara, Permanent Secretary at the Foreign Ministry.
No reason has been given for Mr. Drammeh’s removal. Drammeh briefly served as Interior Minister and was later redeployed to the State House to head Gambia’s Civil Service.
Mr. Drammeh taught President Adama Barrow while he was a student at the Muslim High School. He was the former Director General of The Gambia Tourism Authority.
Mr. Drammeh’s successor Ebrima Camara served as Diplomat at The Gambian Embassy in Brussels, Belgium. He was recalled to replace Njogu Bah, who was sacked by the President.
