Governor Mohammed A. Abubakar (the first Makama Babba of Bauchi) on Wednesday swore in 20 new Commissioners at a grand ceremony held at the Multipurpose Hall, Bauchi. The Governor had dissolved the State Executive Council in July 2017.

In his speech shortly after the swearing in, Governor Abubakar explained that the dissolution of State Executive Council is normal in any government as it enables the Chief Executive of the State to inject new blood and make adjustments where necessary. He further explained that as the year 2019 is fast approaching, “it is of vital importance to bring on board more experienced and energetic people who will assist in accelerating the execution of policies and programmes for the benefit of the masses that voted the APC government into power.”

The Governor stressed that with the appointment of the new set of Commissioners, his administration’s resolve is to refocus and redirect the state’s resources and energy towards realising already set goals so as to justify the confidence reposed on the administration by the people of the state.

He reminded them that they are key players in policy formulation in the state, “hence the need for them to adhere strictly to due process, accountability and probity as the current administration attaches great importance to them.” He then called on them to handle resources at their control judiciously.

The Governor charged the new Commissioners to apply the principle of equity, fairness, and justice in the discharge of their duties. He also reminded them to see themselves as servants of the people and not their masters and be mindful of the oath of office they have taken.

Below is the list of the newly appointed/sworn in Commissioners and their portfolios:

1.) Engr. Nuhu Gidado — Works and Transport
