The Niger State Government has announced the termination of the appointment of political appointees and dissolution of State Boards with effect from May 1.

A statement issued on Monday in Minna by Alhaji Saidu Kpaki, Secretary to the State Government, said the measure was aimed at ensuring smooth transition and proper handing over to the new administration.

It urged the affected appointees, who are heads of establishment to hand over to the most senior civil servant in such establishments.

“Category of officers entitled to severance gratuity who have vehicle loans and have not served up to two years minimum to qualify for the severance are to return such vehicles.

“They should also return any operational vehicle in their care to the Transport Officer, Government House for proper

Documentation,” the statement said.

It added that other officers assigned operational vehicles should also return such vehicles immediately and ensure due clearance.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), however, reports that the termination did not affect personal aides to Gov. Babangida Aliyu. (NAN)
