Borno - The Borno State Government on Wednesday dissolved the caretaker committees for all the 27 local government areas of the state.
Babakaka Garbai, the Commissioner for Local Government Affairs, announced the dissolution in a statement in Maiduguri.
Garbai directed all the caretaker chairmen to hand over the affairs of the council to the secretaries, pending when new caretaker committees would be appointed.
“Governor Kashim Shettima has approved the dissolution of the caretaker committees for all the 27 LGA in the state following the expiration of their six months tenure.
“Shettima’s action was based on the provision of the Borno Local Government Laws 2000,” he said.
Garbai said that all caretaker committee chairmen should hand over the affairs of the councils to the secretaries immediately.
