Presenting the report, the committee’s chairman, Aminu Zakari (APC/Gwiwa), urged the House to suspend the chairmen of Auyo, Dutse, Gumel and Ringim local councils for misconduct.

Mr Zakari said the committee’s findings indicated that the chairmen were involved in misconduct, negligence and misappropriation of public funds.

“That this honourable house should consider the suspension of chairmen of Auyo; Dutse, Gumel and Ringim from office for the suspicious allegations of misconduct, negligence of duties and injudicious spending of public without justification.

“This is in line with provision of the Local Government Law (CAP L8) of Jigawa State 2012, as well as Financial Memorandum.

“Subsequently, the committee directed affected vice chairmen to take charge of their affairs of the councils,” he said.

Also, while advising the ministry for local government to direct all the 27 local councils to improve on their administrative and financial duties, the committee directed the ministry to serve Gwaram and Kazaure councils with strong warning letters for their failure to comply with the Financial Memorandum in discharging their duties.

The committee, however, recommend that Taura and Guri council chairmen be given commendation letters for their full compliance with administrative and financial regulations in their duties.
