Borno Governor Kashim Shettima has dissolved the state executive council just as the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) suspended the Executive Council of Adamawa State indefinitely, four days to the governorship primaries.
The Secretary to Borno State Government, Mr. Usman Jidda Shuwa, announced the decision but did not give any reason for the decision.
Shettima directed all the commissioners to hand over the affairs of their ministries to permanent secretaries before Friday.
The SSG conveyed the “profound appreciation” of Governor Kashim Shettima to the outgoing commissioners for their services and contributions “to the unprecedented developmental progress recorded by the administration”.
He said the governor wishes all the former Commissioners the very best in their future endeavors.
He also conveyed the government’s appreciation to all those who supported the commissioners in the discharge of their duties.
Meanwhile, the National Working Committee of APC has confirmed the suspension of the Executive Council of Adamawa State indefinitely.
The party’s National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Yekini Nabena, a six-man caretaker committee will be constituted to pilot the affairs of the party in the state.
