Governor Abba Yusuf of Kano state has placed his newly-inaugurated commissioners on a six-month probation period.
Speaking during the maiden State Executive Council (Exco) meeting he presided over at the Government House yesterday in Kano, Governor Yusuf said the commissioners would be assessed on the basis of their individual performance after 6 months.
The governor’s spokesperson, Hisham Habib, said Yusuf will head the monitoring and evaluation team to assess the performances of the commissioners and their ministries.
The Governor was quoted saying;
“Let me urge you all to sustain the tempo of loyalty, dedication, commitment to duty and be honest in the discharge of your duties.
“Be honest, accountable, and mindful of the confidence reposed in us by the good people of Kano State.
“I am reminding you that your appointment is on probation of six months after which a monitoring and evaluation team under my headship will be monitoring the performances of the ministries.
“Those who perform well will be appreciated, but those who underperform will be pulled out.
“They are the best team to salvage the state from the mismanagement by the immediate past administration and deliver the dividends of democracy in the nooks and crannies of the state”.
