The Governor of Sokoto State, northern Nigeria, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, has directed the termination of the appointment of all Special Assistants from the service of the state numbering about 252.
Why it matters: Tambuwal recently dumped the ruling party for the country’s main opposition People’s Democratic Party and is expected to run for President in February.
Abubakar Shekar, the Director General of the Media and Public Affairs to the Governor, said in a statement to Today News Africa in Washington DC that the move was to enable the appointees engage in partisan activities without ethical or moral dilemmas.
