Governor of Nasarawa State Abdullahi Sule

Nasarawa State Governor, Abdullahi Sule, has terminated the appointment of Ahmed Tijjani as Secretary to the State Government.

 Permanent Secretary, Government House Administration, Hamza Gayam, announced this in Lafia, the Nasarawa State Capital.

According to Hamza Gayam, Governor Sule asked Tijjani to hand over all government properties in his possession to the Permanent Secretary (Cabinet Affairs and Special Duty) in the office of the SSG with immediate effect.

The removal of Tijjani followed his indictment by the Nasarawa State House of Assembly for alleged misappropriation of over N200 million.

The money was said to be part of the N1 billion approved for renovation and fencing of government secondary schools in the state.

Ahmed Tijjani was alleged to have committed the offence when he served as Commissioner for Education in the previous administration.
