A group under the aegis of Association for Better Kogi State has commended the decision of the state governor, Capt. Idris Wada to sack his entire state Executive Council.
The group chairman, Henry Musa, who gave the commendation while speaking with journalists in Lokoja, said the sack was long overdue.
He noted that the governor did the right thing by sacking the commissioners because most of them were just there to collect their salaries and allowances without doing their job.
According to him, if the sacked commissioners were to be judged by performance, only few of them could be adjudged to have performed above average as many could not complement the effort of the governor in terms of performance.
Mr. Musa said if opinions were to be sampled on the sack of the commissioners, it would be discovered that the people were solidly behind the governor’s decision, adding that what the people wanted was the actualization of Wada’s transformation agenda.
The group, however, called on the governor, when considering replacements for the sacked officials, to appoint only those who would aid development and his transformation agenda for the state.
