From Lola RUMIDE, Abuja.
Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi state has approved the suspension of Nura Dan Maishar’a and Gara’u Adamu of Ningi and Darazo local government areas respectively.
The suspension was contained in a statement signed by the Senior Special Assistant to the governor, Mukhtar Gidado, on Tuesday, 7 January, 2020.
According to a statement by Mukhtar Gidado on Friday, the suspension of the caretaker committee chairmen, which was with immediate effect, was as a result of their alleged lackadaisical attitude to work.
“Government noted that both of them have not been engaging the local government stakeholders in managing the affairs of their councils, and the act violates the principles of good representation, equity, and fairness.
“The suspension of the two local government officials was to facilitate proper investigation into the allegations to enable the government takes a final decision on the matter appropriately,” the statement read in part.
The statement further directed the suspended caretaker chairmen to handover the mantle of the administration of their local government councils to their deputies along with all government’s properties in their possession.
