Gov. Aminu Waziri Tambuwal of Sokoto State has dissolved the Caretaker Committees of all the 23 local government areas of the state.

This was contained in a statement signed by the Special Adviser to Governor Tambuwal on Media and Publicity, Malam Muhammad Bello issued to newsmen today.

The dissolution according to the statement was announced by Governor Tambuwal after a brief meeting with the caretaker committee chairmen at Government House, Sokoto today.

He expressed appreciation to them for the support and encouragement they gave to his administration in the last two years, stressing that “all of you have tried your best for the administration during and after the electioneering campaigns.”

“All of you know that the due process is that Sole Administrators can only be in office for six months. Now you have spent two years,” the Gov. said.

“I’m aware that some of you would want to contest. I wish you all the best. Whether you come back or not we will continue to engage you whenever the need arises,” he added.

According to him, the state electoral commission (SOSIEC) has been appropriately briefed and was planning a new election.

In his response, the former Sole Administrator of Sokoto North local government area, Alhaji Aminu Ibrahim No Delay, on behalf of his colleagues expressed gratitude to the Governor for the opportunity and privilege given to them to serve.

“We will remain with you at all times because we have since realized that your intentions and dispositions are for the collective good of all people of the state,” No Delay said.
