Sokoto State: Governor Tambuwal Swears in New Head of Service
Ahead of the inauguration of a new government in Sokoto State on May 29, the State Governor Aminu Tambuwal has sworn in Alhaji Abubakar Mohammed as the new Head of Service.
Tambuwal swore-in Mohammed at the valedictory State Executive Council meeting on Thursday in Sokoto.
The governor said the action followed the vacancy created after the voluntary resignation by the Head of Service, Alhaji Abubakar Muhammad.
According to the governor, the appointment of Mohammed was based on merit, he being the most senior Permanent Secretary in the State Civil Service.
“That is the right thing to do. As you are aware, when I came in as a governor in 2015, I inherited a Head of Service that we worked together closely to the end of his retirement period,” he said.
Tambuwal congratulated the new Head of Service and called on him to use his wealth of experience in the civil service career to support the incoming administration.
