Gov. Bala Mohammed of Bauchi state, on Tuesday, sent a list of 17 commissioner nominees to the state House of Assembly for confirmation.
The News Agency of Nigeria recalled that on June, 9, the governor dissolved the state Executive Council and other notable political appointees that included the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), the Chief of Staff (COS) Government House, and all Special Advisers, except four named ones.
The Majority leader, Mr Tijjani Aliyu read Gov. Mohammed’s letter containing the list at plenary in Bauchi.
He identified the nominees to include, Abdulkadir Ibrahim (Alkaleri LGA), Garba Dahiru, (Bauchi LGA), Nuruddeen Abdulhamid, (Bauchi LGA), Ahmed Aliyu Jalam, (Dambam LGA), Dayyabu Chiroma, (Darazo LGA), Maryam Bagel, (Dass LGA).
Others, he added, were: Umar Babayo Kesa, (Gamawa, LGA), Asma’u Ahmed, (Giade LGA), Usman Moddibo, (Jama’are LGA), Hajara Jibrin Gidado, (Itas Gadau LGA), Sama’ila Kaila, (Katagum LGA), Aminu Hammayo, (Misau LGA).
Hamisu Shira, (Shira LGA), Samaila Burga, (Tafawa Balewa LGA), Abubakar Bununu, (Tafawa Balewa LGA), Aliyu Tilde, (Toro LGA), and Abdulrazak Zaki, (Warji LGA), completed the list.
Aliyu, however, explained that the house would neither screen nor confirm any nominee, without their curriculum vitae (CV) attached for perusal.
The house unanimously adopted the position that the state Governor should provide the CVs of his nominees to the house before they would be confirmed.
The Speaker, Abubakar Sulaiman directed the Clerk to transmit to the state executive the need to provide the house with the CV of the nominees.
Meanwhile, the state assembly has approved the appointment of Alhaji Abubakar Usman as the Chairman of the State Civil Service Commission.
