Governor Ahmad Aliyu of Sokoto State has set up a nine-man committee to review all appointments made by his predecessor, Aminu Tambuwal, towards the end of his administration.
The panel, headed by former Police Affairs minister, Malami Dingyadi, was specifically mandated to review some traditional rulers’ appointments and rename tertiary institutions.
On Monday, a statement by Abubakar Bawa, the governor’s press secretary, also said the panel would look at the relocation of the institutions and appointment of members of their governing councils by the past administration.
“They are also to review all recent appointments of traditional rulers made by former governor Aminu Tambuwal and address complaints raised against some of those appointed.
“It is to further advise the government on any matter of public interest related to issues on the matter.”
Mr Aliyu had, on the assumption of office, suspended the appointments of affected traditional rulers and ordered the cancellation of the renaming of the tertiary institutions.
He also dissolved the governing boards of all parastatals and agencies in the state.
The panel members are Bature Shinkafi, Kulu Abubakar, Isa Sadiq-Achida, Suleiman S/Fulani, and Umar Yabo, as secretary, among others.
