Adekeye also disclosed that Governor El-Rufai has also approved and accepted the retirement of Stephen Joseph, another permanent secretary in Kaduna state.
This development is on the heels of the governor's initial comment that he is ready to carry out an 11th-hour overhauling before his exit from office.
El-Rufai made this known last week at a public function where he talked about good governance, leadership and the need to put the people first as a leader.
The governor said:
“Any bad thing we find, we will remove so that the next governor does not need to do it again.
"Watch out till the eleventh hour when we shall quit office. We will continue to sack bad persons and remove bad things.”
Similarly, it was gathered that El-Rufai had revoked the right of occupancy of nine properties belonging to Ahmed Makarfi, former state governor, and marked them for demolition.
