Newly sworn-in Governor of Kebbi State, Dr Nasiru Idris says he will sack any appointee pursuing personal aggrandisement instead of the collective interest that would move the state forward.
Idris disclosed this while delivering his inaugural speech shortly after taking the oath of office at the Haliru Abdu Stadium in Birnin Kebbi on Monday.
“We are going to have a government committed to blocking every hand that is stretched either to gain or exploit the resources of the state to personal advantage.
“Alternatively, we shall raise and lift up every hand that seeks to selflessly contribute to our genuine efforts to make Kebbi State better.
“To their end, appointees who place personal interests above public interests will be replaced quickly with those committed and devoted to the prosperity and well-being of Kebbi State and its people.
“I shall sincerely stand against every special interest from affairs of government and will request same from every government official, no matter their status.”
The governor appealed for the collective support of the people to achieve an agenda of redirection, reconstruction, re-alignment and restoration towards building a transformed Kebbi.
