Governor, Aminu Masari of Katsina State on Thursday, June 25, 2015 announced the plans of the government to dissolve the 34 Local Government Councils in the state .
Masari made the pronouncement in during a press briefing with reporters in the state.
He said that the state government would take a look at the law establishing the councils before embarking on the dissolution.
He said, “We are going to follow due process to dissolve the local councils in the state.’
Masari said that his administration was aware that his predecessor had deposited N100 million into the local government accounts to pay salaries and settle some liabilities.
“There is no record where a decision was taken by the local councils to spend the funds’’, said the governor.
The governor said that bank records also showed that the councils massively withdrew the money from their bank accounts.
He, therefore, ordered the council chairmen to immediately refund the money to avoid prosecution.
