Niger State Governor, Alhaji Abubakar Sani-Bello on Wednesday swore in 14 commissioners with a marching order on them to hit the ground running or be ready to be shown the way out of his administration.

He also called on them to embrace the doctrine of team work cautioning against any of the council members from seeking personal or individual agenda with a stern warning that he would not hesitate to drop anyone found with separate agenda than service to the people.

The Governor gave this directive shortly after Justice Musa Abdul, on behalf of the state's Chief Judge, Justice Maria Zukogi conducted the swearing-in ceremony.

He noted that the commissioners were coming on board at a critical period, which would require them to brace up quickly and familiarise themselves with the rudiments of the office with a view to collectively delivering campaign promises to the people of the state.

He said: “I congratulate you all with mixed feelings as you take the oath of office and that of allegiance today. This officially confirms your status as Commissioners in this administration.

“I said mixed feelings because those of you who are fortunate to be returning after the dissolution of the last executive council, I feel you all need to work harder to repose the confidence I have reposed on you that warrants your return.

“These are not times to seek for personal glory or game and we shall not hesitate to show anybody the way out once we discover that he or she has a separate agenda than that of serving the people.”

The Governor urged all the commissioners to have a deep understanding of their mandates and move the administration forward by supporting and complimenting each other cautioning  them not to see themselves in competition with elected office holders or other appointees.

“I encourage you not to see yourselves in competition with either elected office holders or other appointees rather as a key stakeholder and partners in progress, support and complement one another on our collective effort to improve the lives of the people. Ensure there is teamwork and essentially what is meant by collective responsibility in governance without undermining each other,” Sani-Bello said

He then warned that his administration would not tolerate any form of laxity and disrespect for established rules and regulations saying that mechanisms had been putting place to monitor, evaluate and assess your performance.

The Governor announced the posting of the commissioners with four of the former commissioners retaining their offices. They are Dr. Mustapha Jubrin – Health; Hon. Zakari Jikantoro – Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs; Barrister Nasara Dan Malam – Justice; and Hajiya Fatima Madugu – Education.

The newly appointed commissioners are Hon. Mohammed Adamu – Tertiary Education, Science and Technology; Hon. Sunday Daniel Kolo – Culture and Tourism, who is also to oversee Ministry of Information and Strategy; Mamman Musa – Water Resources and Dams Development; Ibrahim Balarabe – Works; and Mohammed Mudi – Investment, Commerce and Industry.

Others are Hon. Haruna Dukku – Agriculture and Rural Development, who is equally mandated to oversee Ministry of Livestock and Fisheries; Barr. Amina Guar – Women Affairs and Social development; Sumaila Ibrahim – Youth Affairs; Idris Jibril Amin – Environment and Forestry; Hon. Ramatu M. Yar’Adua – Mineral Resources; Zakari Abubakar – Finance, who oversees Planning Commission; and Engr. Ibrahim Panti – Transport.
