Barely two weeks after being sworn in as the caretaker committee chairman of Ganjuwa Local Government Area of Bauchi State, Alhaji Abdul Hassan has been sacked by the state governor, Mallam Isa Yuguda. 

The sack was contained in a statement made available to journalists in Bauchi and signed by the permanent secretary (Political Affairs), Government House, Bauchi, Hashimu Yakubu, on behalf of the Secretary to the State Government, Mr Ahmed Ibrahim Dandija. 

Though no reason was given for the sack of the chairman, the statement had it that the governor had appointed Sallau Baba Nassarawa as the new caretaker chairman of the local government, adding that the appointment took immediate effect.

This is not the first time Governor Yuguda of Bauchi State will be suspending or sacking council chairmen without giving reasons for their removal from office. It is either no reason was given or they have been replaced with “immediate effect”.

It will be recalled that in 2010, the governor suspended the entire 20 elected council chairmen for eight months for an offence they did not commit. We believe that by now, 13 years into the present political dispensation, our governors would have purged themselves of the despotic tendencies of military administrators. In as much as we are not holding brief for any erring Local Government  administrator, Nigerians will no longer accept a situation where council chairmen will be removed for no justifiable reasons.
