The Chairman, Lafia Local Government Area of Nasarawa State, Alhaji Muazu Aminu, has urged the newly sworn-in Secretary to the council, Abubakar Mohammed and other political appointees to shun corruption.
Aminu made the call on Tuesday during the swearing-in-ceremony of the political appointees in Lafia.
He said the fight against corruption was in line with his administration’s goals.
The News Agency of Nigeria , reports that those appointed and inaugurated include Abubakar Mohammed as Secretary of the council, Umar Galadima, Chief of Staff; Ismaila Mohammed, Senior Special Assistant on Revenue matters.
Others include Ahmed Gambo, Clerk of the council; Ishaika Isah as Deputy Clerk and Dantala Ayuba as the Sergeant at Arm.
Aminu urged them to be transparent and accountable while discharging their duties at all the time in the interest of peace and for the overall development of the area.
The council boss said the call for transparency became imperative to ensure prudent management of resources and to better the lives of the people as well as the state at large.
He disclosed that their appointments were based on merit and urged them to justify the confidence reposed on them.
“I want to call on you all to be prudent, transparent and accountable in the discharge of your duties in order to justify the confidence the council have in you,” he said.
Aminu promised to operate a transparent, honest and open door administration while soliciting for the support of the people to enable him and his management team succeed.
He explained that the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration from federal to local government levels have policies that are geared towards bettering the lives of the citizenry.
He, however, called on people of the area and Nigerians as a whole to support the APC administration at both federal and state levels in order to enjoy more dividends of democracy.
Aminu also used the event to assure the people of his readiness to initiate good policies and programs that have direct bearing on their lives.
The chairman therefore enjoined the residents to be law abiding, respect constituted authorities and live in peace with one another irrespective of ethnic, religious and political differences.
Mr Ibrahim Iggah while administering oath of allegiance to the council appointees, urged them to discharge their duties without fear or favour.
Responding on behalf of others, the Secretary of the council, Mohammed, promised to discharge their duties with the fear of God.
