By Usman Bello, Damaturu
Yobe state Governor, Hon. Mai Mala Buni CON, today administered Oath of office on two Permanent Secretaries Ibrahim Adamu Jajere of the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development, and Mohammed Inuwa Gulani of the Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Tourism, and other senior government officials.
Addressing the newly sworn in functionaries, Governor Buni charged them to discharge their duties with extra commitment to support the government.
“To the chairman and Permanent Commissioners of the Local Government Service Commission, Alhaji Sule Ado and Alhaji Waziri Yerima, Mallam Kyari Batarama, Alhaji Jibrin Babale, Alhaji Muhammed Kondoma and Hajiya Aisha Haruna Godowoli respectively, you have great roles to play to institute discipline and improve efficiency in local government administration to raise the standard of service delivery at the grassroots.
He added “Let me state with a sense of satisfaction that, Yobe state has performed creditably well in Hajj operations in the previous years. Indeed, we have become a role model in Hajj operations in Nigeria. Therefore, much is expected from Alhaji Mai Aliyu Usman, the Chairman and Alhaji Adam Arjo Kayeri member of the Hajj Commission to contribute selflessly to further improve our already high-ranking performance.
Buni said “As you are aware, Yobe state is today adjudged the second-best state in Sub-national Audit Efficacy index in Nigeria, the appointment of Mai Aliyu Umar Gulani, a thorough-bred professional as the Auditor-General of the State, is expected to improve our performance for Yobe State to become the best state in Nigeria.
7. Similarly, I have no doubt that the appointment of Alhaji Abbani Gambo as a member of the State Independent Electoral Commission; Alhaji Wakil Maina Machina Permanent Member of the Civil Service Commission; and Alhaji Ballama Budu Permanent Member Teaching Service Board, would be advantageous to the respective departments.
8. As l congratulate you all, l equally urge you to abide by the Oath of Office and Oath of Allegiance administered to you a few moments ago. You should dedicate yourselves to the responsibilities of your offices, and contribute to the success of our administration.
9. Let me also stress that you are expected to be in tune with the policies and programmes of this administration, and to be on the same page with our policy of prudent management of resources. You should imbibe the spirit of teamwork for a collective realization of our set goals.
10. I wish you Allah’s support and guidance for a successful tenure of office.
