On Wednesday, the Kaduna State Government swore in a commissioner and two permanent secretaries, vowing to be dedicated and trustworthy.
Hajiya Umma Aboki was sworn in as the state Commissioner for Planning and Budget, and Messrs Kabir Mainasibi and Bashir Muhammad were sworn in as the Permanent Secretaries.
In her remarks at the occasion, state Deputy Governor Hadiza Balarabe urged the officials to stay focused on their jobs and avoid distractions.
Responsibility, according to the vice governor, comes with trust.
She challenged the authorities to demonstrate a high degree of devotion in order to justify the trust placed in them.
The promotions, she claims, are in acknowledgment of her hard work and expertise.
“As a result, I hope you will uphold and protect the trust that has been placed in you,” she stated.
She praised Nasir El- Rufai, the governor of the state, for recognizing her abilities.
“Our governor recognizes and rewards excellence,” she remarked.
She stated that the appointment increased the number of female commissioners in the state to eight, and the overall number of commissioners in Kaduna State to seventeen.
Aboki was a Permanent Secretary in the state Ministry of Planning and Budget until her appointment, according to NAN.
Muhammad Sani Dattijo, who recently quit to run for governor of Kaduna State in 2023, was succeeded by Aboki.
