SUBEB board member reportedly sacked over links with Dogara

A board member of the Bauchi State Universal Basic Education Board
(SUBEB), Mr. Tijjani Jalla, has reportedly been dismissed because of
his association with the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt.
Hon Yakubu Dogara.

The story of his dismissal was made known yesterday by Turaki Hassan,
the Media Aide to Dogara.

According to Hassan, in a letter marked BA/SUBEB/S/GEN/212/T.VII,
which was signed by Yakubu Mijinyawa on behalf of the SUBEB Executive
Chairman, Prof Yahaya Yero, the dismissed board member was accused of
sabotaging the state government by his active participation in
opposition politics and association with the Speaker.

Part of the dismissal letter as shared by Hassan on his Facebook page
reads: "I am directed to inform you (Tijjani Jalla) that you have been
dismissed from service due to your participation in opposition
politics, more especially by your association with the Speaker of the
House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara."

It would be recalled that Dogara emerged Speaker of the Green Chamber
against the wishes of the then national leadership of the ruling All
Progressives Congress, APC, in 2015. He has also been at political
loggerhead with the Bauchi state governor, Mohammed Abubakar of APC.

In recent times, Dogara has been tipped to dump the ruling party for
the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in a fashion similar to
that of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki.
