Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal of Sokoto State has reshuffled his cabinet with a call on all the appointees to prioritise service delivery to the people.
This he stated, was in a bid to re-energise the work of government and bring new impetus to service delivery.
“The little delay in assigning portfolio to the four appointed cabinet members was due to the budget defence by various ministries at the state legislature. All commissioners and other heads of parastatals have successfully concluded their budget defence and the House of Assembly has now passed the 2018 budget,” he explained.
The nine commissioners reassigned to different ministries are; Dr. Muhammed Jabbi Kilgori -Ministry of Higher Education, Bello Goronyo Esq- newly-established Ministry for Energy, Hon Musa Ausa Gidan Madi- Ministry of Solid Minerals and Hon Mani Maishinku Katami -Ministry for Rural Development.
