Kaduna State Governor, Uba Sani, has charged the newly sworn-in political appointees in the state, to brace up for the challenges ahead, by discharging their duties with the highest ability and humility for the development of the state, and the welfare of the populace, noting that the government owes a lot, in providing good governance to the people.
Governor Sani made this statement while swearing in Prof. Bello Ayuba as the Principal Private Secretary to the governor and Samuel Aruwan, as the Administrator of Kaduna Capital Territory Authority.
The governor announced the latter’s nomination as a Commissioner, pending his confirmation by the State House of Assembly.
“I detailed Samuel Aruwan to oversee the affairs of the Ministry of Internal Security and Home Affairs,” the governor stated.
Aruwan is a long-standing journalist and immediate past/pioneer Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs in Kaduna State, while Prof. Bello Ayuba is a seasoned academic and administrator.
Aruwan was however given an additional responsibility to supervise the Ministry of Internal Security and Home Affairs activities, pending the appointment of Commissioners in the state.
However, Governor Sani expressed optimism that the two appointees would play significant roles in the formulation and execution of the present administration’s policies, programmes and projects in the next four years.
“We are confident that the experience they bring on board will be beneficial in the delivery of our promises to the good people of Kaduna State.
“We must at all times, serve the public interest and put service before self,” he said.
Meanwhile, he elucidated that the present times are challenging more than ever, noting that it is an individual and collective task for all, to help stabilize the state and place it on the path to sustainable peace and development.
He explained that it was for that reason that the present administration is putting together a dependable team of experienced, innovative, and committed individuals with a passion for service to the people.
