Issa Yuguda, Bauchi State Governor

The Bauchi State Government on Monday announced the sacking of 1,000 political appointees, in order to pave way for a review of their appointments.
A statement by the Secretary to the Bauchi State Government, Alhaji Ibrahim Dandija, said in Bauchi that those who were affected included directors general, senior special assistants as well as special assistants, the News Agency of Nigeria reports.
The statement added that the disengagement was with immediate effect.
It, however, stated that the review of the appointment would soon be done to reflect the ruling party’s structure.

Others are the directors general, orphan and vulnerable children, recruitment, as well as managing director of the NHIS.
Political appointees attached to the offices of the governor and his deputy were also exempted.
