Ahead of the May 29 inauguration of the new government in Sokoto, Governor Aminu Tambuwal has sworn in Abubakar Mohammed as the new head of service.

The governor swore in Mr Mohammed at the valedictory State Executive Council meeting on Thursday in Sokoto.

Mr Tambuwal said the action followed the vacancy created after the voluntary resignation by the head of service, Abubakar Muhammad.

He said the appointment of Mr Mohammed was based on merit, being the most senior permanent secretary in Sokoto’s 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,” the governor stated.

Mr 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.
