Governor Uba Sani of Kaduna state has told the newly inaugurated Commissioners in the state that they shall be strictly assessed based on performance indicators and anyone who failed to measure up shall be shown the way out.

He said the state was in a period of emergency and must make grave decisions, and his administration will cut down on cost of governance to overcome the economic challenges. The Governor spoke after swearing-in and administering oath of office to the new commissioners at the Council Chambers of Sir Kashim Ibrahim House, Kaduna on Thursday.

Kaduna state, he said, was confronted with economic and security challenges and his government will set up a trust fund to cater for the poor, the underserved and the vulnerable people.

He said he will donate 50% of his salary to the trust fund.

According to him, ” we count on you to bring your experience and competence to bear on governance in the state. You are coming into our administration at a period when we are confronted with serious economic and security challenges. Creative and innovative steps are being taken to address the challenges.
