Gov. Babagana Umara, of Borno, on Tuesday urged the newly sworn-in Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Alhaji Usman Jidda-Shuwa, and other appointees to deploy their vast experiences in ensuring service delivery for the development of the state.
He gave the advice shortly after Mr Babagana Karomi, the Deputy Chief Judge of Borno State, performed the swearing-in of the officials at the Conference Room of the Governor’s Office in Maiduguri.
Those sworn-in alongside the SSG were Mr Babagana Wakil as Chief of Staff (COS) and Dr Mairo Mandara, Special Adviser (SA) and coordinator, Sustainable Development Partnership and Humanitarian Support.
The other appointee sworn-in was Malam Isa Gusau, as Special Adviser on Public Relations and Strategy to the governor.
The Governor said that the appointments came after a careful search, diligent considerations and wide consultations.
“The appointments are in recognition of the appointees’ proven capacity, records of integrity, passion for selfless services and dedication to duty,’’ Umara said adding that the state would expect high performance from the aides.
Umara warned that he would not condone the habit of absenteeism and any form of indiscipline by civil servants in the state.
He said that the government would design policies to eliminate unnecessary government spending and check corruption in the civil service.
He also urged the civil servants and people of the state to accord all necessary support to the newly appointed officers for the betterment of the lives of the citizens.
In his remarks Jidda-Shuwa expressed gratitude and appreciation to the governor for giving him the opportunity to serve the state and the nation.
Jidda-Shuwa reiterated his commitment to relentlessly work toward the implementation of the policies and programmes of the state government.
