From Maiharaji Altine Salah

Kebbi state Governor, Comrade Dr Nasir Idris, Kauran Gwandu has dissolved all the elected Chairmen of the 21 Local Government Areas of the state and their Secretaries.

In a statement, the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Ahmed Idris said, the dessolution of the chairmen followed the expiration of their tenure which ended Monday, Feb. 5.

The Governor directed the chairmen to handover the mantle of leadership to Directors of Personnel Management (DPMs) of their local government councils.

Addressing the outgoing chairmen at Government House, Birnin Kebbi on today, the Governor thanked them for the services rendered to their contituencies, while applauding their efforts that they had done well.

He insisted that there were laws governing the local government administration and it had become imperative for government to respect those laws and act as leaders.

“We need to do the needful so that later anything can follow. We did not intend to send anybody away, however, we will make sure that nobody is left behind.

“This is your government, therefore you need to support it to succeed, of course, there is the need for you to work assiduously to see that this government succeed,” he pleaded.

Gov. Idris promised to continue to deliver dividends of democracy to all parts of the state “in fulfilment of our campaign promises.”

Responding on behalf of other local government chairmen, the Chairman, Association of Local Government of Nigeria (ALGON), in the state, Alhaji Aminu Sarkin-Fada appreciated the governor for his support which according to him aided them to record successes.

“I believe without the support of His Excellency, we wouldn’t have achieved what we have achieved,” he insisted.

He listed the distribution of fertilisers free-of-charge to farmers as well as cash disbursement to empower people, saying that the gesture had made many people to now stand on their feet, “they became self-reliant due to the support and magnanimity of His Excellency.”
