Gov. Mohammed swears in six new commissioners in Bauchi
Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State on Friday swore in six newly-appointed commissioners and five special advisers.
Three of the commissioners were among the six who had resigned their appointments to contest their party primaries ahead of the 2023 elections.
While three of the former commissioners emerged victorious in their various primaries, the other three were unable to clinch their party tickets.
During the swearing-in, the governor commended their resolve to remain in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) after losing in their primaries.
Mr Mohammed also said that the remaining new three commissioners were appointed based on their antecedents and track records.
The commissioners and their portfolios include Abdulkadir Ibrahim, Works and Transportation; Ahmed Jalam, Water Resources.
Others are Maryam Bagel Power, Science and Technology; Zainab Takko, Commerce and Industry; Adamu Gabarin, Information and Communication and Sabiu Gwalabe, Health.
The Special Advisers are Bala Kasko, Musa Mohammed, Abubakar Nawaila, Gashon Danna, and Sabo Khalifa.
