Taraba Governor, Dr. Agbu Kefas on Tuesday sworn in 22 Commissioners screened by the Taraba State House of Assembly with a charge on them to deploy their energy and talents in moving the state forward in line with his administration’s blueprint.
Kefas gave the charge while delivering his speech shortly after the State Acting Chief Judge, Justice Filibus Agya administered the oath of office and oath of allegiance on the 22 Commissioners.
The Governor explained that the selection of the Commissioners was done with the spirit of inclusivity, fairness, and balance, adding that his administration recognized the importance of allowing the youths to grow hence the dominance of youths in the cabinet.
“The youths have demonstrated capacity with innovative ideas to leadership and we need to give them opportunities to grow and contribute their quota to the development of the society. We have equally involved women in our quest to ensure gender inclusivity.
“I know you will face challenges, but your experiences in the past will help you to overcome them all. So, work in synergy with your colleagues and other members of the State Executive Council,” he charged.
While congratulating the newly appointed Commissioners, the Governor calls on them to discharge their duties diligently, listen to the concerns of the people and work towards addressing their concerns.
This is even as he said, with the appointment of commissioners in less than two months in office, his administration has taken a bold step toward accelerated development in the state.
