Borno State Governor Babagana Zulum on Thursday promised to complete rehabilitation work on the state secretariat.
The Governor also presides over the swearing-in of the newly appointed permanent secretaries to the Borno state civil service, where he made the promise.
In a ceremony conducted at the multi-purpose hall of the government house, Gov. Zulum charged the new permanent secretaries to ensure probity, prudence in public finance management, staff discipline and efficient management of human resources to achieve organizational objectives.
“We need a very vibrant bureaucracy, with the institutional frame work for basic service delivery to meet up a very high public expectation in order to strengthen the confidence of the people in us.”
Furthermore, Governor Zulum call on the new appointees to be dedicated to their duties and also proper professional advises that would guide the Commissioners to achieving the administration objectives.
“Let me say that governance in a crisis situation is very different, and the daunting task. In spite of our effort since the assumption of office, the security challenges have given us little room to launch in full force of our developmental agenda. Our zeal and commitment are for a quick economic recovery, job creation, revitalize the health and education sectors and restore life back to normal. We will not be discouraged or get fascinated; we will by the grace of God achieve our objectives.” Said Gov. Zulum.
In another development, the Governor warned that he would not hesitate to remove anyone not discharging his duties diligently. He added that his administration would not condone acts of inefficiency from anyone.
Earlier the head of service Alhaji Mohammed Hassan thanked Governor Babagana Umara Zulum for appointing competent personalities who would inject new ideas to the civil service.
