Newly Sworn-In Gov. Ngilari Sacks Adamawa cabinet, Political Appointees


The new Adamawa State Governor, Mr. Bala Ngilari, on Thursday approved the dissolution of the State Executive Council and political appointees with immediate effect.

A statement by his Chief of Staff, Alhaji Chubado Tijjani, said all affected office holders should hand over all documents and other government property in their possession to permanent secretaries in their various ministries.

The statement, however, said heads of statutory commissions were not affected by the dissolution.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the affected appointees had yet to spend up to three months in office.

They were appointed by the former Acting Governor, Alhaji Ahmadu Fintiri, who was sacked by a Federal High Court, Abuja, on Wednesday.
