The Governor of Kebbi State, Abubakar Bagudu, has announced the removal of 17 Local Government Sole Administrators. The governor made this known to journalists on Thursday, shortly after meeting with the local councils officials in the state capital.
According to him, four sole administrators would continue to retain their seats as he explained that those who were removed had completed the one year tenure approved for them by the State House of Assembly.
He thanked the outgoing officials for serving the state and assured that the government would utilize their experiences as appropriate.
“The government will consequently appoint acting caretaker leaders from among appointed councillors of various local government councils.
“The Sole Administrators of Arewa, Kalgo, Koko Besse and Fakai are to continue in office because their tenure has not yet expired,” he said.
