Zulum dissolves cabinet, orders commissioners to list achievements


Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum, has dissolved the State Executive Council and directed the outgoing commissioners to list their achievements in their handover notes.

Zulum, who announced the dissolution shortly after a valedictory session in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, on Thursday, May 25, said the commissioners who are to handover to their Permanent Secretaries should also include their challenges, projects completed, and uncompleted in the notes.

The governor lauded them for their contribution to the success of his administration and wished them the best in their future endeavours.

Speaking at the event, the deputy governor of Borno State, Umar Kadafur, thanked Zulum for giving him and others the opportunity to serve in his cabinet.

Kadafur said as a deputy governor, Zulum gave him the opportunity to be the most powerful deputy governor in Nigeria.

He added that Governor Zulum delegated him to participate in many occasions attended by governors.

This, he said, has enabled him to gain more experience in leadership.

All commissioners that spoke at the occasion shared their experience and thanked the governor for the opportunity provided to them to serve.

Others affected by the dissolution include Special Advisers, Senior Special Assistants, Special Assistants, Chairmen, and members of Boards and Parastatal agencies.

Governor Zulum secured a second term with a landslide victory in the March 18 governorship and state House of Assembly elections.

Out of the 649,855 votes cast, Zulum, on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), scored 545,543, defeating his distant trailer, Mohammed Ali Jajari of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who polled 82,147 votes.

He is expected to be sworn in on Monday, May 29, 2023, for a second term.
