Aliyu sacks political appointees, boards
NIGER State Governor Muazu Babangida Aliyu has sacked all political appointees as well as dissolved the boards of parastatals in the state.
A letter signed by the Secretary to the State Government, Saidu Ndako Idris and made available to newsmen in Minna said the dissolution and sacking took effect from May 1st.
The statement added, “As part of measures to ensure smooth transition and proper handing-over to the new government in Niger State, Aliyu has approved the dissolution of state boards and termination of political appointments with effect from May 1, 2015.
“Where a political appointee is the Head of the Establishment, he is to hand over to the most senior civil servant in the rank in the establishment.
“You must also be informed that category of officers entitled to severance gratuity, who have vehicle loans and have not served up to two years minimum, to qualify for the severance, are to return such vehicles and any operational vehicles in your care to the Transport Officer for proper documentation.”
The governor further instructed that any other officer assigned operational vehicles must return such vehicles immediately and ensure due clearance.
Aliyu had earlier in April written to the State House of Assembly for an approval to sack political appointees in the state.
