Governor Aminu Masari of Katsina State has warned the newly appointed Local Government Transition Committee chairmen against absenteeism from their duty posts.
Gov. Masari gave the warning in Katsina at the swearing-in of the 34 newly appointees.
He said his administration’s intention was to have elected chairmen, but the opposition dragged the administration to court to prevent it from having democratic structures in place at the local level.
The governor charged the appointees to discharge their duties to the best of their abilities.
He assured them that the state government would provide necessary support to enable them succeed in running their administrations.
