The governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni, has tasked the state’s head of service and permanent secretaries with guiding each employee by assigning them a schedule of duties to support their employment.
On Tuesday, while nine newly appointed permanent secretaries were being sworn into the state civil service, Buni delivered the proclamation.
As you are aware, this administration recently hired more than 2,600 degree holders, certificate recipients, and holders of NCEs to fill open posts in the state civil service in order to increase productivity.
“I charge the office of the Head of Service and the Permanent Secretaries to promote schedule of responsibilities, giving every worker a duty to justify their employment and the resources expended as wages on civil servants,” he commanded.
He claims that doing this will increase employee engagement and sense of belonging in the state, reduce absenteeism and laziness, and boost vitality.
He urged the newly appointed permanent secretaries to be good team players and to get along with their commissioners, directors, and other employees of their respective ministries and departments in order to meet the goals they had been given and achieve the best possible outcomes.
He emphasized that “you are to demonstrate a high level of loyalty, sacrifice, and diligence to the machinery of governance in the service of Yobe State.”
Alhaji Modu, Umar Aji Suleiman, Abdulmumin Mamman, Tsoho Rabiu Garba, and Sani Mohammed Sama’ila have just been sworn in as permanent secretaries.
Others include Baba Kachallah Geidam, Yusuf Hassan Yusuf, Bukar Aji Bukar, and Zainab Mohammed Ago. They have all been assigned to various state ministries, departments, and organizations.
