There is a feeling of unease among members of staff of local government councils especially senior level officers following sack of some heads of local government administration and treasurers.
Our correspondent reports that the Katsina State government, through the Local Government Service Commission, had last week, sacked six heads of local government administration.
Some of the relieved heads of LG administration include, those of Funtua, Dutsinma, Danja, Zango, and Baure.
The heads of local government administration who currently oversees affairs of the council areas owing to absence of elected leadership structures, were directed to report to the Local Government Service Commission.
Barely three days after the head of local government administration were relieved of their duties, the state government, yesterday, sacked six local government treasurers and directed them to report to local government service commission.
No reason was however given for the government’s action fuelling speculations among the members of staff of local government councils that the Masari -led government was angling to fix its loyalists in key positions across the LGs.
