Bello Matawalle

Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara, late Thursday, laid down five new special advisers and four permanent secretaries.

Speaking during the event, which lasted until Friday around 1.30am, Matawalle said the new appointments would cover the gaps in the workforce recently created in the system.

“While we are talking, at least ten permanent secretaries should retire, we must take steps to cover such a shortage of manpower in order to provide services efficiently.

“We also need special advisers to lead some government agencies that have yet to get political leadership.

“This is in the interest of efficient administration,” the governor said.

He called on the new appointees to incorporate the key policy of their administration in order to provide good services to the people.

“You are called to justify the trust that is being placed in you.

“We want to see that in your ability to manage public resources, and you should keep in mind that our administration has no zero tolerance for corruption.”

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that as a special adviser they took the oath: Dahiru Mohammed, Habib Yuguda, Hashim Mohammed, Sani Danjuma and Sani Shehu.

Matawalle also laid down as permanent secretary to Lawali Mainasara, Musa Liman, Mainasara Shehu and Tukur Garba.

Responding on behalf of the nominees, Alhaji Habibu Yuguda pledged his commitment to strengthening the governor’s team towards efficient service delivery.

He thanked the governor for giving them the opportunity to serve the state.
