President Abdrabuh Mansour Hadi has sacked Prime Minister Ahmed Obeid bin Daghar over the country’s economic crisis, and referred him to investigations, according to a Presidential Decree that was posted on the official FB page of the president and then reported by Saba news agency.
A statement issued by the presidency said that the dismissal was prompted by the “negligence that accompanied government services and work in the economic field.”
