Kaduna state Governor, Nasir el-Rufai, has charged the newly appointed Head of Service, Chief of Staff, Principal Private Secretary, and special advisers to deliver the dividends of democracy to citizens of the state.
Speaking shortly after swearing-in the new appointees at the Dir Kashim Ibrahim Government House, Kaduna, Governor el-Rufai thanked them for accepting to serve the people, adding that they would be assessed based on their performance.
“You must quickly settle in and deliver results. Each of you will receive and adhere to job descriptions that will be followed by key performance indicators and performance agreements. All are subject to strict quarterly reviews, because we must maximise the short time left to deliver service for our people.
“Some of the appointees are not from Kaduna state, but as you all know Kaduna is a mini Nigeria. This is Kaduna where we all live and grew up. I commiserate with you because the work is much for you to deliver,” he added.
Some of those who took the oath of office include, Muhammad Sani Abdullahi, Chief of Staff; Dr. Salisu Suleiman, Principal Private Secretary; Hajiya Bariatu Mohammed, Head Of Service; Muyiwa Adekeye, Special Adviser, Media and Communications; Ben Kure, Special Adviser, Political Matters; Dr. Omano Edigheji-Special Adviser, Research and Documentation.
The state deputy governor, Dr. Hadiza Sabuwa Balarabe, tasked all the appointees to work hard for a lasting legacy. “We need to leave lasting legacy for those that are coming after us. We believe you will settle down quickly to implement our programmes for the good people of Kaduna state.”
