An All Progressives Congress (APC) stalwart and patron of its presidential campaign council in Niger State, Alhaji Awaisu Giwa Wana, has cautioned outgoing governor, Alhaji Abubakar Sani Bello, to suspend last-minute appointments and massive employment into the civil service to stop unnecessary burdens.
Wana stated this during an interview with journalists in Minna, the state capital.
He said the governor’s recent actions would put the incoming administration in a tight financial corner.
The APC stalwart explained that the state’s economy is currently in bad shape and unpalatable; hence, more employment in the civil service would create more burdens for Niger State.
He argued that the outgoing administration ought to have suspended such actions at the twilight of its administration and allowed the incoming one to make necessary decisions based on the realities facing the state.
According to him, “making last minute appointments and massive employments into the civil service the ongoing civil service recruitment is uncalled for.because they were actions meant to cause unnecessary burden and undermine the incoming administration”.
He also frowned at the lopsidedness in appointments in the state, insisting, “recent developments have shown that one section of the state is being favoured against others.It is indeed deliberate and it won’t augur well for this state”.
