Shekara said, “Gov. Aminu Tambuwal has relieved Barrister Bello Goronyo of his appointment as Commissioner for Information with immediate effect.
“The Permanent Secretary has been directed to take over the affairs of the Ministry immediately.”
The decision to relieve the official of his post was sequel to the alleged sabotaging of the state government’s efforts on its laudable programmes and activities, he explained.
Recall that Muhammad-Goronyo had on Tuesday evening decamped from the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC), Naija Politico reports.
Also recall further that the former Commissioner, also doubled as the Chairman, Publicity and Media Committee of PDP Governorship Campaign Council in Sokoto State, before he announced his defection at APC campaign rally in Wamakko.
