Suspended Kaduna Local government Chairman reinstated​ for his “courage”​


The Chairperson of the Interim Management Committee of Kaduna North local government council has been recalled from suspension.

In a letter of recall, dated November 13, 2015 and signed by Balarabe Lawal, the Secretary to the State Government, ordered the immediate reinstatement of the chairperson, G.A. Kurfi.

Mr. Kurfi was suspended from office on October 8, 2015 following some actions the Kaduna North local government council took in furtherance of the recovery of public lands.

After his suspension, his conduct was investigated and he was invited to respond to a query.

Following consideration of his response, and the conclusion of investigations, the government determined that his conduct in tackling illegality was commendable.

But it noted that the administrative lapses that occurred in the implementation of the action were unfortunate.

The investigation cleared the chairperson of any wrongdoing, and commended his courage and initiative.

The government, therefore, decided to lift the suspension, and recall him to office.

The letter also admonished the recalled chairman to always abide by laid down administrative procedures.

The government further said it expects all public official to fully comply with regulations.
