The governor inherited most of the commissioners from his late boss, Patrick Yakowa.
The Governor of Kaduna state, Ramalan Yero, has announced the immediate dissolution of the state executive council.
The governor announced the dissolution Wednesday at the end of a cabinet meeting at Government House, Kaduna.
A statement by his spokesperson, Ahmed Maiyaki, quoted Governor Yero as thanking “the outgoing members of the council for their valuable contributions to the state and wished them success in their future endeavours”.
The statement also directed all commissioners to hand over the affairs of their respective ministries to their permanent secretaries by Friday, September 13.
Most of the commissioners sacked by Mr. Yero Wednesday were inherited from the era of late Governor Patrick Yakowa, who died in a helicopter crash on December 14 last year.
Although the governor made a minor cabinet reshuffle on May 27 this year, the commissioners only swapped positions.
There had been speculations of cabinet reshuffle in Kaduna since January this year shortly after Mr. Yero assumed office after the demise of his late boss.
Mr. Yero’s decision to sack his cabinet Wednesday also coincided with a similar action at the federal level, where President Jonathan sacked nine of his ministers.
In the same vein, Plateau Governor, Jonah Jang, also Wednesday sacked chairmen of local government Councils in his state, replacing them with permanent secretaries and directors in the state’s civil service.
