Sokoto State Governor, Alhaji Aminu Tambuwal, Wednesday inaugurated the chairmen of boards and commissions of agencies and departments in the state, saying his administration will not allow chief executives to run establishments as personal estates.
Speaking shortly after inaugurating the chairmen in Sokoto, Tambuwal, who maintained that the state government would not fold its arms and allow a few people mismanage government agencies, emphasised that the essence of selecting men of integrity and experience to manage the boards was to guard against executive recklessness.
The governor, who pointed out that the appointment of the members of the boards was based on merit and antecedents, expressed optimism that those selected would work assiduously towards the attainment of the desired goals.
“One of the cardinal principles of this administration is inclusiveness and those selected are personalities of political clout who will be relied on in managing the various agencies. They are personalities with great wealth of experience that will ensure that government policies and programmes are implemented in public interest.
“I have no doubt that those appointed will use their education and experience to ensure that government establishments are repositioned for optimum results,” he said.
