Ahead of the May 29 inauguration of the new government in Sokoto State, Gov. 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.
He said the appointment of Mohammed was based on merit, being him 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.
