1min read

Six commissioners were Thursday sacked by governor Ibrahim Gaidam of Yobe State for inefficiency.

The governor who announced the commissioners disengagement at the weekly executive council meeting at Government House said they were found wanting in the performance of their duties.

The commissioners are Bala Haladu, (Transport and Energy); Yusuf Yahaya, (Sports); Musa Maina Dumburi, (Ministry of Youths); Fatsuma Talba, (Health); Ahmed Wakil Sarki, (Environment) and Aji Yerima Bularafa, (Higher Education)

Governor Gaidam, however, said the commissioners should see their removal from the cabinet as normal routine exercise done to allow his administration meet the expectations of the people.

He thanked thanking the commissioners for their service to the state and observed that some of them might be called upon to serve the people again if the need arises
