Nigerians on social media are ridiculing the Governor of Jigawa State, Muhammad Badru Abubakar for what they see as a waste of tax payer’s money.
The list which contained 51 new Special Assistants was made public by the state government and it has since gone viral on social media.
In the list, 3 Special Assistants were appointed for the Governor’s three wives, namely:
Sa’adatu Bashir Muhd is the special assistant to the first wife of the governor; Mariya Muhammed Muktar is the Special Assistant of the governor’s second wife and Aisha Garba is the Special Assistant to the governor’s third wife.
Also in the same list were Special Assistants for Streetlight and Population control.
While the responsibility of all the aides on the list was clearly stated, the Special Assistants to the Governor’s wife was not stated.
The state government is yet to respond to the backlash it is currently receiving because of the Special Assistant Nomination llist.
