Commissioner for water resources, Hajia Hadiza Onotu is facing sack over an alleged letter forgery mess.
The governor according to investigations while compiling names for his cabinet, received a letter from Hajiya Onotu purportedly written by the Vice-President of Nigeria, Arch. Namadi Sambo introducing her as his candidate; a move which led to the governor appointing her into his cabinet.
However, it was a shocked Governor Idris Wada who was told by the V.P in one of their National Council of State meetings in Abuja recently, that he did not send any letter to him to appoint the Kaduna based lawyer into any cabinet position.
This governor who was embarrassed by the discovery, invited the embattled commissioner for a chat in his office, immediately he arrived in Lokoja.
The commissioner who could not defend herself, broke down in tears and started confessing that the letter was actually forged by one of her lovers working in the presidency, with close ties to the office of the Vice president.
The governor was reportedly ready to relieve the commissioner of her position immediately but was disuaded from doing so by one of his aides who is often regarded as a member of his kitchen cabinet.
The aide cited the several litigations confronting the governor and advised against any negative publicity that the news might generate in the state.
The commissioner since the incident, has been left in the lurch by the governor who has left her idle in her office in Lokoja and it is only a matter of time before she is shown the way out. As at the time of going to press, efforts to speak with her on the issue was futile as she was said to be indisposed.
