Suspended Kaduna North LGA Chairman reinstated, cleared of any wrongdoing
The suspended Chairman of the Interim Management Committee of Kaduna North Local Government Council, Alhaji G.A. Kurfi has been recalled from suspension.
A letter of recall, dated 13 November 2015, signed by the Secretary to the State Government (SSG) Balarabe Abbas Lawal, ordered the immediate reinstatement of the chairman.
According to a statement by Samuel Aruwan, Special Assistant Media and Publicity to Governor Nasir Ahmad El-rufai said after his suspension, Kurfi’s 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 chairman of any wrongdoing, and commended his courage and initiative. The government has 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 full compliance with regulations by all public officials” the statement asserted.
It would be recalled that the chairman was suspended from office on 8 October 2015 following some actions the council took in furtherance of the state government’s recovery of public lands from encroachers.
