 Bauchi State government has dethroned six traditional rulers for alleged participation in partisan politics during the 2023 general elections. 

A statement signed by the Acting Permanent Secretary, Local Government Service Commission Nasiru Ibrahim Dewu on behalf of the Chairman of the Commission, the royal fathers were sacked for involvement in partisan politics, misconduct, illegal forest reserve encroachment/felling of trees, misappropriation of public funds and insubordination.

Those affected include, Alhaji Aminu Muhammad Malami, District Head of Udubo, Alhaji Bashir Kabir Umar, District Head of Azare, Umar Omar, Village Head of Gadiya, and Umar Bani, Village Head of Tarmasuwa all in Katagum Emirate Council. 

Also dismissed from Bauchi Emirate Council are: Bello Suleman, Village Head of Beni and Alhaji Yusuf Aliyu Badara, Village Head of Badara.

"The Local Government Service Commission has approved the dismissal of six traditional rulers in Bauchi and Katagum Emirate Councils, for involvement in Partisan Politics, Misconduct, Illegal Forest Reserve Encroachment/Falling of trees, Misappropriation of Public Funds and Insubordination, which is contrary to the Public Service Rules.

The dismissed traditional rulers are from Two Emirate Councils of Bauchi and Katagum which are the two leading Emirates in the state, the Emir of Bauchi is the Chairman of the State Council of Traditional Rulers while that of Katagum is the Deputy Chairman. 

The statement therefore directed the affected traditional rulers to handover to their Secretaries while the Emirate Councils are to appoint overseeing officers pending the appointment of substantive officers by the Commission.
