Just a week after appearing before a Joint Select Committee where he was accused of improper practices, Youth Training and Employment Partnership Programme (YTEPP) CEO Nigel Forgenie has been fired.
His services were terminated with immediate effect.
Speaking at the Post Cabinet media briefing on Thursday, Communications Minister Stuart Young said the decision came from the Board of YTEPP, following a meeting held a day after his appearance before the Public Accounts Enterprises Committee on July 4.
Young said at that meeting, Forgenie was afforded the opportunity to explain himself and defend his performance.
“After deliberating on the matter the Board has today issued a letter where it has decided and indicated its decision that it can no longer continue to repose any level of confidence in Mr Forgenie as the Chief Executive Officer, and as a consequence, his employment with the company is to be terminated with immediate effect.”
Young said Forgenie’s termination by the YTEPP Board followed “proper due process”.
Forgenie was the CEO at the State Enterprise for the last 12 years.
