Bauchi Worker Sacked Over Facebook Comment
A Bauchi State civil servant, Abbas Ahmed Faggo, who was sacked over alleged injurious comments he made about Governor Isa Yuguda on his face book page, has given the state government a seven day ultimatum to re-instate him or face legal action.
Faggo’s threat was contained in a letter sent to the Bauchi State Head of Service, and signed by his counsel, Barrister Usman Darazo. “Our client has informed us that his appointment with the Bauchi State government which is governed by the Bauchi State Public Service Regulations 2001, was brought to an abrupt end by your letter dated November 13, 2012, with reference number GO/ESM/S/DIS/1/T.2.
“However, we have reviewed the entire process that led to the termination of our client’s appointment and we realized that the proper procedures laid down in the statute governing our clients service with Bauchi State government was not observed. We demand from you the immediate re-instatement of our client back to his service with all his entitlements and privileges of office.
“Take notice that if you fail to meet our demands within seven days from the receipt of same, we shall be left with no option than to commence a legal action against the government of Bauchi State”, part of the latter read.
