Breaking: Bauchi Gov Re-Appoints Barrister Kashim As SSG
By Kamal Ibrahim, Bauchi
Barely one week after his defeat at the PDP presidential primaries, Bauchi State Governor Bala Mohammed Abdulkadir has reappointed Barrister Ibrahim Mohammed Kashim as the Secretary to the Bauchi State Government (SSG).
The reappointment of Barrister Kashim follows his decision to withdraw his candidacy for the 2023 Bauchi Governorship election under the platform of the PDP. He emerged as the flag bearer of the party in Bauchi a week ago at the party’s governorship primaries having emerged as the unopposed governorship candidate of the party in the state.
The Governor in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media Mukhtar Mohammed Gidado on Thursday said the reappointment of Barrister Kashim came on the heel of his track record of achievements during his first stay as SSG about nine months ago.
“His reappointment was informed by his track record of sincerity, loyalty, commitment and wealth of experience in the discharge of assigned responsibilities,” the statement read in part.
Bala said that the reappointment is with immediate effects.
LEADERSHIP recalls that two days ago, Barrister Kashim announced his decision to step down from his governorship candidacy, prompting PDP in Bauchi state to make public its plans to conduct another governorship primaries in the state.
