Representing the governor of the state, Alhaji Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, Secretary to the state government, Prof. Mamman Saba JibrilI congratulated the appointed members of the Council and Board while urging them to serve the state diligently.
Saba said it is worthy to note that their appointments are based on public trust and they are expected to bring forth intelligence, humility, accumulated wealth of experience, administrative acumen as well as proficiency in the various fields which will in turn propel the incumbent administration in the state to enviable heights.
He said, “I wish to state in unequivocal terms that your appointment is a right step in the right direction in order for the state government to deliver the dividends of democracy and topnotch governance to the citizens of the state of Harmony.
“On this note, you are all Ears, Eyes, Nose and Mouths of His Excellency in your respective Councils and Boards. Your assignment is to ensure smooth running of your Institution, Agencies and Parastatals and not to constitute threat, problems or hindrances to the day-to-day administration of your Boards and Agencies.”
