The Niger state governor, Mohammed Umar Bago’s Public Private Partnership (PPP) Special Adviser to the Niger state governor, Mohammed Umar Bago, Mr Jonathan Tsado Vatsa has charged the newly sworn in commissioners, Special Advisers and other political appointees not to see their appointment as a call to serve the people and not for personal gains.
Former Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism and Chieftain of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Niger state, Mr Vatsa disclosed this when
community leaders, Muslim and Christians leaders had gathered in the community where they offered prayers for all their sons and daughters from the areas who were recently appointed.
He emphasized that every opportunity to serve the people should be seen as a privilege to add value to their lives and should not be seen as opportunity for personal aggrandizement.
The APC chieftain who is also a former publicity secretary of the party in the state while thanking the people for their support for the present administration in the state before, during and after elections assured them that the government will fulfill all its campaign promises to them, adding that
He said that the Governor is already fulfilling part of his campaign promises with the recent appointment of 131 women into his government who will serve as commissioners, Special Advisers, Coordinators, Senior Special Assistants and Special Assistants.
The Special Adviser disclosed that this will be followed with youth empowerment programme of the Governor, stressing that “no segment of the society will left behind in the transformation drives of the Governor. What is needed from you is a continue prayers session like this to enable the government succeed”.
Vatsa further pointed out that the government acknowledged the present hardship being faced by the people which was occasioned by the fuel subsidy removal, adding that the people will be the greatest beneficiaries at the end because the expected savings from the subsidy removal will be channeled to infrastructural development.
Special prayers were offered by the different religious leaders in the area for all elected and appointed leaders from the area and the peace of the state and the country in general.
