Niger State Governor Abubakar Sani Bello has set up a three (3) man panel to investigate the allegations against the Shiroro Local Government Chairman that was suspended by the Legislative Council.
Inaugurating the panel at the Government House, Minna, the Governor said setting up the Committee is key in resolving the political impasse in the council and is in accordance with what the law provided.
He said he has no doubt that the panel will do justice to the issue and asked the committee to submit their report in four (4) weeks time.
“I have no doubt that you will do justice to it and come up with a report within the shortest possible time”, he said.
The Governor directed the State Commissioner for Justice and Attorney General, Barrister Nasara Danmallam to provide the Committee with all that is needed for it to succeed in the task ahead.
Responding, the leader of the panel, Justice Halima Abdulmalik of the State High Court, assured the Governor that the panel will do its best in discharging its responsibility and will accord fair hearing to all parties involved. She also promised to complete the assignment within the stipulated time frame.
Recall that Shiroro Local Government Chairman was suspended in December 2020, by the Legislative Council following some allegations.
The Legislative Council equally informed the Governor of its resolution and requested him to set up a three man panel headed by a High Court Judge as required by the law, to investigate all allegations and report for necessary decision and action.
