This decision comes just four weeks after Bukar-Machina was elected and sworn in alongside other sixteen council chairmen, signaling a zero-tolerance stance by the governor against any form of misconduct or insubordination in the state’s local government administration.

The governor’s action is in line with Section 2 of the Local Government Law (as amended) 2019, which empowers him to suspend or remove any local government official for misconduct or non-compliance with the law.

By taking this decisive step, Governor Buni has demonstrated his commitment to upholding the highest standards of discipline, accountability, and good governance in Yobe State’s local government administration.
