Kaduna Assembly Suspends 3 LG Chairmen Over Financial Mismanagement

The Kaduna State House of Assembly has suspended three local government chairmen in the state over alleged financial mismanagement.

The chairmen are accused of awarding contracts without following due process, as mandated by the Kaduna State Public Procurement Law of 2016.

The ad-hoc committee on investigation scrutinised the financial activities of five local government areas: Chikun, Kaura, Kagarko, Soba, and Birnin Gwari.

They have been asked to vacate their offices for the next six months for further investigation.

The chairmen of Birnin Gwari and Soba local governments did not violate any laws but were reprimanded for their failure to procure the 2023 approved budget from the Ministry of Local Government on time.
