Ahead of the inauguration for a second term beginning on 29th of May 2019, the Niger state Governor, Abubakar Sani Bello has directed all political appointees in the state to return official vehicles attached to them.
The directive which was conveyed in a circular signed by Chief of Staff to the Governor, Mikail Al-amin Bhimtosai, said it’s a directive from the Governor.
Also a source who spoke with Nigerwatch Newspaper said he heard about the directive but he is not in the office to have seen the letter.
Governor Bello was declared by winner by INEC in the keenly contested election. The Peoples Democratic party which is the major opposition has since filed a petition before the election petition tribunal challenging the outcome.
Governor Bello has called on his major challenger, Umar Nasko to join him in moving the state forward.
