Mr. Kataps was later appointed as the new secretary of the state government in an announcement by the commissioner of information, Emmanuel Bello.
However, sources told Saharareporters that the bizarre announcement was hatched by Mrs. Hauwa Suntai, the wife of the ailing governor who is illegally occupying the government house using her brain-damaged husband as a shield.
A source in the camp of the Acting governor, Alhaji Garba Umar told Saharareporters that the cabinet dissolution by Mr. Suntai's wife carries no effect.
They urged residents to disregard the purported dissolution of the cabinet and go about their normal duties.
The acting governor and several commissioners including security chiefs in the state attended a meeting where they planned to adequately respond to the ruse, our source stated.
