He told members of the GTC that, “with your appointment into this Committee, I expect you to play your roles with skill and efficiency. You should be courageous, innovative and responsive. I urge you to maintain appropriate and harmonious relationships amongst yourselves.”

According to him:” We are transiting to a government that respects the rule of law

and due process; we are transiting to meritocracy and target-driven and purposeful governance; and we are transiting to patriotic nationalism and people-oriented governance. In doing your work, and in all your interactions

with MDAs, you should be guided by these.

The Kano Governor-elect further stated that: ” I make haste to add that our Movement is blessed with very many high quality and competent professionals, technocrats and politicians of repute that selecting the few members to serve on the Transition Committee from among that pool of experts has been such a competitive task. I want to assure those that did not see themselves in this Committee that they are not forgotten.

” And we will not forget any one. Let me also express my appreciation to the electorates in Kano State and indeed all residents of the state, especially our teeming youth and women, for voting our party and ensuring our victory.


” I pray that you would continue to cooperate and support our incoming administration as we set to commence the implementation of our campaign promises as contained in our blueprint.”

He added that: “This Gubernatorial Transition Committee is therefore put in place to promote the orderly transfer of Executive Power together with the services and facilities needed to assume official duties from the outgoing administration to our incoming administration.

“Such services and facilities include, but not limited to,

the Gubernatorial Records, the State Government Records, and the Executive Branch records, etc.

” As you accepted to serve, it is essential not to lose sight of the fact that we will be running a progressive government that will be responsive to the yearnings and aspirations of all the citizens and residents of our dear state. We will, in sha Allah, work to right the wrongs and to heal all wounds inflicted on our state.

“Your work at this Committee would set the stage ready for our State’s journey to enduring peace, economic prosperity and sustainable development.

” You are expected to carry out this assignment with professionalism, dedication, sincerity and patriotism. You are expected to be guided by the

conditions of your appointments as contained in your letters of appointment and other relevant guidelines and directives.
