His Excellency Governor Mohammed Abdullahi Abubakar ( Makama Babba the 1st of Bauchi ) swears in 20 new Commissioners at a grand ceremony held at the Multipurpose indoor sport Hall, Bauchi on 7th February 2019
In his speech shortly after the swearing in, Governor Muhammad Abdullahi Abubakar explained that the dissolution of State Executive Council is normal in any government as it will enable the Chief Executive of the State inject new blood and make adjustments where necessary. He further explained that as the year 2019 is fast approaching, it is of vital importance to bring on board more experienced and energetic people who will assist in accelerating the execution of policies and programmes for the benefit of the masses that voted the APC government into power.
The Governor described the newly sworn in Commissioners as a set of top flare and vibrant set of Commissioners. The governor stressed that with the appointment of the new set of Commissioners, his administration’s resolve is to refocus and redirect the state’s resources and energy towards realizing already set goals so as to justify the confidence reposed on the administration by the people of the state.
Furthermore, the Governor reminded them of the fact that they are key players in policy formulation in the state, hence the need for them to adhere strictly to due process, accountability and probity as the current administration attaches great importance to them. He then called on them to handle resources at their control judiciously.
Finally, Governor Mohammed Abubakar charged the new Commissioners to apply the principle of equity, fairness, and justice in the discharge of their duties.
