Gov. Yahaya Bello of Kogi on Friday dissolved the boards of the state’s parastatals and agencies.

This is contained in a statement issued in Lokoja by the Chief of Staff to the governor, Mr Edward Onoja.

The statement noted that the dissolution takes immediate effect, directing the chairmen and Directors-General of the affected agencies to hand over government’s property in their possession to the most senior officers.

It explained that the dissolution was to pave way for the restructuring of the boards and to take stock of their state with a view to positioning them for greater efficiency and performance.

However, the statement added that the office of the Accountant-General and three statutory boards are not affected by the order.

They are: Judicial Service Commission, Civil Service Commission and the State Independent Electoral Commission.

Bello thanked all the chairmen and members of the dissolved boards for their services to the state and wish them well in their future endeavours. (NAN)
