Kebbi state Governor, Abubakar Bagudu, has removed 17 out of the 21 Local Government Sole Administrators in the state.

The governor told the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, on Thursday that the affected LG administrators had completed their one year term as approved by the State House of Assembly.



    He explained that they were initially appointed to serve for only three months, but State assembly had approved an extension following a request by the executive.

    Bagudu commended the LG managers for their service to the state, assuring them that the government would utilize their experiences if the need arises.

    He said, “The government will consequently appoint acting caretaker leaders from among appointed councillors of various local government councils.

    Four of the local government sole administrators, including those of Arewa, Kalgo, Koko Besse and Fakai local government councils are to continue in office because their tenure has not yet expired.
