Governor Abubakar Sani-Bello of Niger State has dissolved the state executive council and directed all Commissioners to prepare and hand over the affairs of their Ministries to their Permanent Secretaries.
This was made known in a statement sent to Naija News and signed by the Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Jibrin Baba Ndace.
The governor also directed all other political appointees to do same and handover to the most senior civil servant in their departments or agencies.
Sani-Bello directed that all handover should be perfected on or before 12 mid-night of Tuesday.
He expressed his appreciation to council members for offering themselves for the service of the state at a crucial period like this.
“I want to express my profound gratitude to all of you. I appreciate your commitment to the service of our dear state. You all have contributed immensely to the social contract we had with our people four years ago.
“The modest actualisation of the “Restoration Agenda” was a product of our collective efforts.
“I want to wish every one of you success in your future endeavours while I implore you all to remain committed to the development of our dear state. Your valuable contributions are highly appreciated and I make bold to say that you all have done well,” the governor said.
