In Niger: Governor Bello Appoints 17 New Perm Secs., Retires 16 In Massive Shake-Up

Governor Abubakar Bello of Niger State on Wednesday, October 11, dissolved the State Executive Council.

The governor further directed all permanent sectaries to take charge until new appointments are made.

Bello announced the dissolution after the Weekly Executive Council Meeting in Minna, through a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Malam Jibrin Baba Ndace.

He, however, retained the three newly-appointed commissioners in the ministries of tourism and culture; mineral resources and livestock and fishery.

The statement further said that the weekly executive council meetings had been suspended until a new cabinet would be put in place.

Mr. Bello thanked the former members of his cabinet for their contributions, support and commitment to the actualisation of his Restoration Agenda and wished them success in their future endeavour.

No reason was given for the dissolution of the cabinet but sources have squealed that it may be out of the dissatisfaction over the poor performance of some Commissioners.
