BAUCHI: Governor Yuguda Sacks Over 2,000 Aides

imageBauchi State Governor, Mallam Isa Yuguda, on Monday sacked over 2, 000 of his political aides but retained very few on essential services.
The sacking, which was contained in a statement by the Permanent Secretary, Political Affairs, Government House, Hashimu Yakubu, on behalf of the Secretary to the State Government, stated that the sacking of all Special Advisers, Senior Special Assistants and Personal Assistants was with immediate effect.
Although, the number of aides sacked was not disclosed in the government statement, it was, however, learnt from a government source that they might well be over 2, 000.
The source said, “I don’t know how many of them were sacked but they can be more than 2, 000 because even shortly before the elections, the Governor was said to have appointed over 70 aides.”
The statement read, “The Executive Governor of Bauchi State, Mallam Isa Yuguda, has approved the disengagement of all Special Advisers (with the exception of the Special Adviser, Due Process).
“Also, all Senior Special Assistants, Special Assistants and Personal Assistants (with the exception of those who work directly under His Excellency the Executive Governor or the Deputy Governor).”
According to the statement, all those affected are requested to hand over government property in their possession (if any) to the heads of organisations where they served.
Yuguda therefore expressed his appreciation to the disengaged political aides for their contributions to the development of Bauchi State in their various capacities and wished them the best in their future endeavours.
