Crowds thin out in government houses

The crowds around some of the outgoing state governors are fast thinning out with only 12 days to their exit from office and the inauguration of their successors.

Eleven of the 36 states will have new helmsmen on May 29.

They are Adamawa, Bauchi, Borno, Gombe, Imo, Kwara, Lagos, Nasarawa, Ogun, Oyo and Yobe.

Our correspondents reported yesterday from Yola, Owerri and Ilorin that the hustle and bustle characteristic of most government houses across the country has slowed down with the imminent change of guards.

But the situation is a bit different in Ibadan and Abeokuta where visitors still continue to besiege Governors AbiolaAjimobi and IbikunleAmosun’s offices to see them.

Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed of Kwara State has come under severe criticism in the last few weeks over his appointment of Prof.  Kenneth Adeyemi as acting vice chancellor of the State University (KWASU), Malete, two months to the expiration of the tenure of the incumbent, Prof AbdulrasheedNa’Allah.

Students and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) of the institution as well as the Ilorin Emirate Descendants Progressive Union (IEDPU) and the Governing Council of the university have all protested against the governor’s decision.

When the outgoing governor recently swore in two new Justices of the State High Court, Justices Olalekan Moses Adegbite and Hammed AliyuGegele, and two Kadis of the state Sharia Court of Appeal, SharafuHannafi and AbdulraheemSayi, the ceremony went almost unnoticed.

Attendance was low and the pomp and ceremony that usually go with such events were missing.
