Gov. Babagana Zulum of Borno has written to the state House of Assembly withdrawing the nomination of Ibrahim Ngoshe as a commissioner.

Mr Zulum had, on July 28, forwarded the list of his cabinet nominees to the legislature for screening and approval.

The governor’s spokesman, Isa Gusau, who announced this in a statement issued on Saturday in Maiduguri, explained that by this, the number of commissioner-nominees is down from 18 to 17.

Mr Gusau said further details would be provided if need be. 

Mr Ngoshe was number 13 on the earlier list submitted to the Assembly by the governor.

The nominee is yet to react to the development.
