Governor Mai-Mala Buni of Yobe State has sworn-in Baba Mallam-Wali as the new Secretary to the State Government, and seven newly appointed Permanent Secretaries in the state.
DAILY NIGERIAN reports that the seven newly appointed permanent secretaries are: Mustapha Abba Gaidam, Lawan Kolo, Kasim Tijjani-Kalli, Zanna Ali-Ibrahim, Yakubu Dokshi Abdullahi Musa-Shehu, and Usman Ahmed.
The governor also sworn-in Adamu Garba-Talba as the member of the State Pilgrims Commission.
Speaking at the swearing-in ceremony on Thursday in Damaturu, the governor congratulated the new appointees, whishing them Go’s support and guidance as they take on their new responsibilities.
The governor described the new SSG as a dedicated public servant who has served in many capacities over the years.
Mr Buni recalled that Mr malam-Wali was his acting SSG for six months after taking office as a governor.
“I made the decision to confirm him as substantive SSG in recognition of his hard work and loyalty, and because he fully shares in my vision for the state, a vision borne of my total commitment to make Yobe a better place for all its people.
“As chief adviser to me and coordinator of government activities, this is a vision that he will work for and seek to accomplish every single day,” Mr Buni said.
“The newly appointed permanent secretaries and the member of the State Pilgrims Commission also possess outstanding qualities in their respective capacities as public servants.
“Their appointments are well deserved and, together with the SSG, I have no doubt they would strive to justify the confidence I have in them and that the people of our state have in them.
“As we work to deliver on our commitments and make the people feel that their government is on their side, I call on all of us to re-dedicate ourselves to the task of creating a better Yobe for its people,” he said.
