The Governor of Kano State, Abba Kabir Yusuf, has mandated a six-month probationary term for his newly appointed commissioners before they take on their permanent roles.
Governor Abba issued a stern warning that his administration would not stand for incompetence, complacency, or carelessness, and he emphasized that his team could handle any challenge that arose.
To rescue Kano from the pain of lousy governance it experienced for eight years, the Governor, who presided over the first meeting of the state executive council in the private chamber of Africa House, emphasised that the Commissioners needed a trial period to equip them with the skills to do so.
I’d like to remind you that your position is temporary, lasting only six months before being reviewed by an evaluation team I’ll lead to see how well the ministries you’re in charge of are doing. Governor Abba warned that those who did not perform up to par will be removed from their positions.
He reassured the Commissioners that they had been selected for the positions based on their qualifications and urged them to give their full attention to the work at hand.
In his address to the state’s employees, the Governor said, “Let me urge you all to sustain the tempo of loyalty, dedication, commitment to duty and be honest in the discharge of your duties, be accountable and mindful of the confidence reposed in us by the good people on us.”
Governor Abdullahi Ganduje has charged the state’s commissioners with serving the people of Kano as one united unit, telling them that he is confident in their ability to right the wrongs of the previous administration and bring democracy’s benefits to every corner of the state.
As the voyage began, Governor Abba thanked the people of the state and promised them significant changes that would have an immediate impact on their daily lives.
