Bauchi State House of Assembly has began screening of 19 commissioners nominees submitted by Governor Mohammed Abubakar of Bauchi State.
The Majority leader of the assembly, Tijani Mohammed Aliyu, representing Azare/Madangala constituency read the letter containing the names of the nominees at the floor of the house Tuesday.
He said that Abubakar submitted the names in line with section 192 sub section 2 of the 1999 constitution as amended.
The new cabinet will consist 20 commissioners, one each from 20 local government areas of the state.
Governor Abubakar had earlier while forming his cabinet reduced the number of Ministries in the state to 16 from the over 20 he inherited from his predecessor.
However many believed that, Jama’are was not included because the deputy governor, Engineer Nuhu Gidado who was serving as Commissioner of education in the last cabinet will not be replaced.
Some of the commissioners who served in the last 16 member dissolved cabinet have also made the list.
