| August 15, 2013 More

THE Igbo community in Bauchi State has commended Governor Isa Yuguda for giving the Igbo in the state equal opportunity to participate in all government’s activities.

  The Ezeigbo of Bauchi, Igwe Jude Umezika, told The Guardian that many Igbo people, who were under contract employment with the state government, have been converted to permanent and pensionable jobs.

  Igwe Umezika said the issue of non-indigeneship had been expunged from the State Civil Service Rules and regulation, adding that every citizen was considered as indigene and enjoyed equal rights and privileges.

  He said: “The government pays examinations fees for all students in public schools irrespective of their states of origin; not like before that the fees varied for indigenes and non-indigenes”.

  He further added that the state government also offered political appointments to over five Igbo since the inception of the Yuguda administration.
