Chairmen of commissions and boards are hereby directed to handover to their most senior directors. The Head of service is to oversee the office of the SSG.

 Furthermore, The Emir of Dansadau is under investigation. Consequently, he is suspended with immediate effect.

The district head of Dansadau is to oversee the affairs of the emirate. The district head of Nassarawa Mailayi is also suspended with immediate effect.

Semzyblog  gathered that the reason for their suspension can't be far fetched owning to the security situations in the state. 

You will recall; As at 17th April, 2021. The Governor suspended the district head of Badarawa, Shinkafi Emirate. "We suspended Surajo Namakkah the district head of Badarawa, Shinkafi emirate, for conferring a title on a military officer who was arrested for selling ammunition to bandits. The military officer was recently arrested in possession of 20 rounds of 62mm live ammunition. The suspect was at the point of handing over the ammunition when he was apprehended, and had allegedly collected an advance payment of N100,000 from bandits. Also, one medical doctor and seven others were arrested for aiding and abetting banditry in Zamfara".

We pray for Peace.
