Niger Governor Sacks Commissioners
The wind of change is sweeping through the government house in Minna, the Niger state capital.
Governor Abubakar Bello has dissolved the State Executive Council.
It was like a bolt from the blue, as the governor took many people by surprise when he announced the dissolution of the Council at the weekly council meeting.
The governor, however, announced to the council that he was retaining the three commissioners he appointed two months ago.
The three commissioners who retained their jobs are Daniel Sunday kolo (Tourism and Culture), Muhammed Mudi (Solid Mineral) and Haruna Shehu (Livestock and Fishery).
The governor directed all the permanent secretaries of the affected ministries to take charge until new appointments are made.

A statement by Bello's Chief Press Secretary, Jibrin Baba Ndace, noted that the governor said the weekly executive council meetings had been suspended until a new cabinet is formed.
Bello thanked the former members of his cabinet for their contributions, support and commitment to his Restoration Agenda.
