The Bauchi State Governor-elect, Bala Mohammed, has given some lawyers the go ahead to sue the state governor, Mohammad Abubakar, for recruiting civil servants, reinstating district heads and awarding new contracts through the State Universal Basic Education Board, barely six weeks to the end of his administration.
Mohammed gave his approval while hosting a group of lawyers under the aegis of Body of Bauchi Lawyers of Conscience in Bauchi on Saturday.
The group’s convener, Shipi Rabo, had in his address asked the governor-elect to grant them permission to sue Abubakar on the three issues.
Mohammed thereafter gave them the permission to go ahead with their plan.
Another leader of the group, Jibrin Sa’id Jibrin, said the action of the outgoing administration was meant to leave behind financial burden for the incoming government.
