Taraba State?s Acting Governor, Garba Umar

Taraba State?s Acting Governor, Garba Umar, on Thursday sacked two Special Advisers. The affected officials are ? Tonyonga Binga (Education) and Joseph Magaji Tahwa (Rural Development).

It was not clear what led to their sack. Umar simply said he does not require their services.

?The services of the affected Special Advisers are no longer required,? he said in a press release. The release was signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Kefas Sule, and made available to Daily Times.

Binga and Tahwa were appointed by ailing Governor Danbaba Suntai, who is recuperating in a United States hospital from injuries he sustained when a plane he piloted crashed near Yola, Adamawa State in October last year.

Thursday?s sacking of the two advisers came a few days after the former SSG Emmanuel Njiwah, five commissioners and two advisers were sacked by the acting governor for allegedly embezzling the N400 million flood funds provided by the Federal Government.

Njiwah and his group have since sued the government, seeking a declaration that their purported sack is null and void.
