“When you  get an appointment, it is for you  to serve the state. Render meaningful service. You are  not appointed to  make money”.

The governor  said that  with the appointment of additional  17 permanent  secretaries, the development  of the  state  will be consolidated.

“With the appointment of these permanent secretaries, we will  continue  to develop the state at a faster pace”, he said.

The governor  noted that  his administration  has ensured the  needed spread in the  appointment  of permanent secretaries, pointing  out that only Tai Local Government Area is without a permanent secretary.
