The Governor of Jigawa State, Malam Umar Namadi, said he reappointed some of the commissioners of ex-Governor Muhammad Badaru Abubakar’s administration based on their competency and commitment.
Namadi stated this in an interview with BBC HAUSA on Friday while reacting to criticism over the re-appointment of the commissioners.
DAILY POST reported that the governor has sworn in 16 new commissioners, eight of whom had served in the previous administration, after their confirmation by the state House of Assembly.
“I know all these commissioners who have been reappointed we all worked together when I was a commissioner and deputy governor, I know what they can do and what they can not.
“I think there is nothing wrong with that, the only thing we need is who can keep trust, who can do what is right for the people of the state,” Namadi said.
