The Governor of Niger State, Mu’azu Aliyu, has directed commissioners to prepare comprehensive handover notes for the next administration.
He gave the directive Wednesday in Minna while inaugurating a 27-person transition committee to oversee the handing over of
power to the next administration next month.
Mr. Aliyu urged commissioners and other key government officials in the state to ensure they prepare proper records, adding that the incoming government will work on available records provided.
“Allegations from those who do not understand the workings of government are already flying around that I need to account for certain government actions. It is therefore imperative for us to present comprehensive records of government activities in various ministries.”
“Everything we did since the past eight years were done in council. No commissioner executed projects without the approval of council. We executed projects we initiated and completed those left by our predecessor.”
“Government is all about continuity. The documents we will present to the next administration will go a long way in helping them to start work. It is therefore instructive that we must be detailed, clear and concise about programs, policies of our ministries.”
Governor Aliyu said vying for political positions is not for the purpose of making money but a call to serve God and humanity. He, therefore, maintained the administration he led has worked within the confines of what they had to get the much they achieved so far.
