In his inaugural speech on Monday, Governor Nasiru Idris of Kebbi State expressed his firm determination to dismiss any political appointee caught pursuing personal gains at the expense of the state’s welfare. Taking the oath of office as the ninth governor of the state at the Haliru Abdu Stadium in Birnin Kebbi, Governor Idris emphasized his administration’s commitment to thwarting any attempts to exploit the state’s resources for personal advantage.
The governor asserted, “We shall raise and lift up every hand that seeks to selflessly contribute in our genuine efforts to make Kebbi state better. To this end, appointees who place personal interests above public interests will be quickly replaced with individuals devoted to the prosperity and well-being of Kebbi state and its people.”
Idris went on to emphasize his resolute stance against special interests within the government’s affairs, calling for every government official, regardless of their status, to adhere to the same principles. He further sought the collective support of residents to achieve his agenda of redirection, reconstruction, re-alignment, and restoration in order to build a new Kebbi.
“Our government will strive to achieve an agenda of redirection, reconstruction, re-alignment, and restoration. It will not be easy, but dear compatriots, it is very possible. It requires sacrifice and commitment from all of us,” the governor affirmed.
Governor Idris emphasized the importance of justice, fairness, and the fear of God in his administration’s leadership. He pledged to revolutionize the education sector with higher standards and improved welfare for teachers and students. Additionally, he promised to reform the civil service, enhance accessibility to healthcare services, motivate health personnel, and develop both urban and rural roads.
“We shall focus our attention on improving the welfare of our people. We shall initiate programs that prioritize the needs of the poor in our state. Deliberate policy support will be provided to empower our citizens to be self-employed, self-reliant, and productive employers of labor,” Governor Idris declared.
He further emphasized that such measures would significantly boost the state’s economy, investing in the people, their employment opportunities, and their future.
Former Governor Atiku Bagudu expressed his gratitude to the people of Kebbi State for entrusting him with their leadership for eight years.
