Nasarawa gov dissolves state executive council



Nasarawa State Governor, Abdullahi Sule, has sacked all members of the State Executive Council.

The governor announced the dissolution of the cabinet at the end of an expanded executive meeting at the Government House on Monday in Lafia.

Sule had yet to give any reason for the dissolution of the cabinet.

The governor, while thanking the erstwhile commissioners for the sacrifices they made towards repositioning the state in the last two years of his administration, also directed that all Special Advisers, Special Assistants and Senior Special Assistants vacate their offices immediately.

A source, who spoke on condition of anonymity within the government circle, said most of the political appointees were recommended to the governor by his predecessors and that he had to sack them to fix his foot soldiers in preparing for the forthcoming local government elections billed for October 6, 2021 and for the 2023 governorship election, as he might be seeking a re-election.

“We all know that most of the political appointees in this state were recommended by past governors of the state.

“So, I believe that he is sacking them to be able to bring his foot soldiers into the political system before the commencement of the local government elections on October 6th and the governorship election in 2023, because he has been getting endorsement across the state to continue as governor,” the source alleged.
