Gov. Mohammed Abubakar of Bauchi on Thursday dissolved his cabinet, sacked the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Alhaji Bello Ilelah and disengaged his Special Assistants.
A statement to that effect, signed by Permanent Secretary, Special Duties and Political Affairs, Malam Saidu Maikobi, directed the affected appointees to handover the affairs of their ministries to their Permanent Secretaries, latest July 21.
Maikobi also announced the appointment of Alhaji Mohammed Nadada as the new SSG, while Brig-Gen Ladan Yusuf (Rtd) had been retained as Special Adviser on Security.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the new SSG, Nadada, a 1978 graduate of Law from the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, had worked with the State Ministry of Justice, Bauchi State Investment and Property Development Company Ltd and New Africa Merchant Bank Ltd, among others.
He was also the SSG from 1999 to 2006 under the administration of Alhaji Ahmed Muazu.
He had also contested as the PDP Gubernatorial candidate in 2007, but was defeated by the then ANPP candidate, Malam Isa Yuguda.
