The Adamawa state governor, Bindow Jibrilla, has sacked the state’s chairman of Internal Revenue Board, Ahmed Tuta over alleged non-performance and obstinacy.

Mr. Tuta’s dismissal came just weeks after some lawmakers in the state assembly accused him of “stubbornness”.

The decision was announced at a state executive council meeting where some of the government’s policies were reviewed.

Briefing newsmen on the outcome of the meeting Saturday, the commissioner for Information and Strategy, Ahmed Sajoh, said the removal of the board’s chairman along with some top officials was as a result of the agency’s inability to realize the revenue aspirations of the state.

He added that a committee, to be headed by the state’s Attorney-General and commissioner for Justice, Silas Sangah, was formed to reposition the revenue board for efficient service delivery.

“Government is not satisfied with what is happening in the board,” he said,  adding that the government “is going to look at cases of financial irregularities of the board for the past three years”.

Meanwhile, at the meeting, the state commissioner for Solid Minerals, Victoria Sashe, also announced that the government has signed an investment deal with Smart Group which has interest in Guyuk cement.
