Borno State Governor appoints Igbo man, Yoruba man into his cabinet


Two non-indiegenes have been appointed into the cabinet of Borno state governor, Babagana Zulum.

The duo; Kesta Ogualili from Anambra state and Yusuf Alao from Oyo state were appointed as special advisers. It is a much needed diversity in a state whose diversity has been stripped away by years of insurgency which made inhabitants from other parts of the country return home.

Mr Ogualili an Igbo man hails from Dunukofia local government area of Anambra while Alao is from Ogbomosho local government area of Oyo.

The two are part of the 26 appointees sworn in by the governor on Wednesday. The governor explained that the the two none Borno indigenes were appointed as professionals who have lived in the state for many years and have been active in supporting the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The governor was represented by Umar Kadafur, his deputy, who administered oath of office and allegiance for the appointees.
