MAIDUGURI, North-East, Nigeria – Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum, has charged new appointees to ensure probity, prudence in public finance management, staff discipline and efficient management of human resources to achieve organizational objectives of the government.
He gave the charge during the swearing-in of 14 newly appointed permanent secretaries to the Borno state Civil S,ervice, in Maiduguri on Thursday, October 24, 2019.
In a ceremony conducted at the multi-purpose hall of the Government House, Zulum said;
“We need a very vibrant bureaucracy, with the institutional frame work for basic service delivery to meet up a very high public expectation in order to strengthen the confidence of the people in us.”
He further called on the new appointees to be dedicated to their duties and also proffer professional advises that would guide the commissioners to achieving the administration’s objectives.
“Let me say that governance in a crisis situation is very different, and a daunting task. In spite of our efforts since the assumption of office, the security challenges have given us little room to launch in full force of our developmental agenda.
“Our zeal and commitment are for a quick economic recovery, job creation, revitalize the health and education sectors and restore life back to normal. We will not be discouraged or get fascinated; we will by the grace of God achieve our objectives,” he said.
The Governor warned that he would not hesitate to remove anyone not discharging his duties diligently; cautioning that his administration would not condone acts of inefficiency from anyone.
Earlier, the Head of Service Alhaji Mohammed Hassan, thanked the Governor for appointing competent personalities who would inject new ideas to the state Civil Service.
