He explained that all appointees after March 19, 2023, were affected by the directive. 

According to Bawa, the renaming of tertiary institutions in the state by Tambuwal has also been nullified.

“All recent appointments of traditional rulers, made by former Gov. Aminu Tambuwal are hereby suspended and will be reviewed in due course in the public interest.

“All local government sole administrators/ caretaker committees recently appointed by the immediate past administration are hereby dissolved," the governor said. 

The governor further directed Local Government Area Sole Administrators to hand over to the Directors of Administration at the Councils with immediate effect.

He also dissolved all governing boards of parastatals other than statutory boards with immediate effect.

The governor further said that all wasteful and unnecessary auction of government assets were suspended and would be revisited in due course.

Following the directive, the governor appointed Ibrahim Arkilla as the acting Director-General of the State's Pilgrims Welfare Agency.
