I didn’t sack Bauchi head of service – Bala

Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi state has debunked a news report insinuating that he sacked the state head of civil service Ahmed Abubakar Ma’aji.

The governor in a statement issued by his Senior Special Assistant on media Mukhtar Gidado Sunday clarified that Ma’aji was not sacked but he attained his retirement age having served Bauchi state for 35 years.

According to him, the government has appointed new acting head of service in the person of Dr Bala Lukshi who is the most senior permanent secretary in the state.

“Our attention has been drawn to what we consider a mischievous story by an online Newspaper to the effect that Governor Bala Mohammed has “sacked” Alh Ahmed Abubakar Ma’aji, as Bauchi State Head of Civil Service.

“For the avoidance of doubt and in order to put the records straight , it is imperative to clarify  that at no time  did His Excellency , Governor Bala Mohammed sack the immediate past Head of Civil Service. Alh Ahmed Abubakar Ma’aji, has reached the normal retirement age  on Friday 25th September, 2020  having meritoriously served the State  for 35 years.

“The news report is therefore a misrepresentation of the press release earlier issued conveying the appointment of the Acting Head of Civil Service Dr Bala M Lukshi.

“Finally , we call on media practitioners to always cross check their facts before going to press for proper and effective information dissemination”. The statement reads.
