Jang directs commissioners to prepare hand over notes

19 December 2014, 12:37

Jos - Governor Jonah Jang of Plateau has directed members of the State Executive Council to prepare their hand over notes and brief him before the commencement of campaigns for the 2015 general elections.

He gave the directive during the swearing of seven Permanent Secretaries in Jos on Thursday.

Jang said the notes would help the incoming government to commence work immediately to know what had been done and ones left to be done.

"These hand over notes are not the usual handing over notes, they must have details of projects that have been executed, ongoing projects and what the ministry has had in mind or on paper to continue.

"I expect the notes immediately after the New Year, before we go into serious campaign, each ministry should come and brief me, and we will take a week to do that”, he said.

The governor warned the new appointees against indulging in corrupt practices.

"The Plateau civil service is today being invigorated with the swearing of new permanent secretaries.

"These appointments have been made to fill the existing vacuum created by the retirement of some permanent secretaries.

Jang said that though his administration was coming to an end, the state government would not relent in repositioning the state civil service before handing over to the next government.

He said that the reforms bothered on staff welfare, structure, and scheme of service, financial regulations and professionalism among civil servants.
