Nigeria High Commissioner to United Kingdom, Justice George Adesola Oguntade, on Saturday returned to the country on completion of his posting.
He is a retired Justice of the Nigeria’s apex court, the Supreme Court of Nigeria.
Ogintade was bidded farewell by the Marshal of the Diplomatic Corps, Mr William Alistair Harrison, on behalf of Her Majesty the Queen.
High Commissioner to the United Kingdom assumed duty at the Nigeria High Commission on 9th October, 2017.
The eighty years old retired justice was among the ambassadors dropped by President Muhammadu Buhari.
He was dropped alongside the Ambassador to the United States, Justice Sylvanus Nsofor.
He, however, renewed the appointments of 12 other non-career ambassadors, promising to uphold the principle of fair representation and inclusiveness in all governance affairs.
A statement by presidential spokesman, Malam Garba Shehu, in July 2020 disclosed the president’s decision to drop some ambassadors while 12 of them were reappointed. According to the statement, the 12 had their appointments renewed following a satisfactory performance evaluation. He however said that the president would still decide if the ambassadors would retain their current postings or be transferred.
