Clean sweep: Yuguda sacks over 2,000 aides
Bauchi State Governor, Mallam Isa Yuguda, on Tuesday issued sack letters to his Special Advisers, Senior Special Assistants, Special Assistants and Personal Assistants.
The sack, however, did not affect his Special Adviser on Due Process and other aides working directly for him and his deputy.
The notice was contained in a statement issued in Bauchi by the Permanent Secretary, Political Affairs, Alhaji Hashimu Yakubu, and made available to newsmen.
Although, the number of aides sacked was not disclosed in the government statement, Punch however, learnt from a government source that they might well be over 2, 000.
The source said, “I don’t know how many of them were sacked but they can be more than 2, 000 because even shortly before the elections, the wovernor was said to have appointed over 70 aides.”
According to the statement, “all those affected are requested to hand over government property in their possession (if any) to the heads of organisations where they served”.

I don’t believe this. Where did Yar’Adua’s in-law fish these people from?. And, where are they headed now? Labour market? I doubt. Expect an increase in the brood of high profile vagabonds.
