Gov. Abba Yusuf of Kano State has sworn in 45 special advisers with an appeal to them to be prudent in discharging their primary assignments.
The ceremony was held at the Government House in Kano on Thursday.
Mr Yusuf said their appointments were based on integrity and antecedents, asking them not to betray his confidence on them.
He explained that the expectations of people of Kano State were very high, hence the need to be up and doing in completing the administration’s political commitment of moving the state to greater heights.
“My administration is fully committed towards implementing people-oriented policy and programmes that would enhance the well-being of our people,” he said.
Mr Yusuf also lauded the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) Kano chapter, for cooperating with the present administration.
He directed all special advisers to work hand in hand with civil servants to pave the way for smooth implementation of government’s policies and programmes.
“We will continue to support our workforce with required working facilities to enable them to perform optimally,” he said.
The governor had earlier appointed 72 special assistants, 44 senior special reporters, and 14 new special advisers, bringing the total number to 130.
Only four women were sworn in as special advisers.
They are Fatima Amneef, special adviser, special assignment women; Aisha Idris, special adviser, food security; Habiba Baura, special adviser, domestic affairs and Saadiya Abdu Bichi, special adviser, women, children and disabled.
