Governor Bello dissolves boards, parastatals

Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, Friday ordered the dissolution of government boards and parastatals in the state.

The governor, in a statement through his Chief of Staff, Edward Onoja, ordered all political appointees, members of boards and parastatals to handover to the immediate most senior officers in their offices with immediate effect.

He said government is about to commence the restructuring of the boards and parastatals for efficiency and service to the people.

The directive, however, does not affect three statutory boards and the state Accountant General.

The boards not affected are: Judicial Service Commission, Civil Service Commission and the State Independent Electoral Commission.
