Governor Aminu Bello Masari has warned that his administration will not condone absenteeism from the newly sworn-in local government transition committee chairmen in the state.
The Governor sounded that warning after the Oath taking ceremony by the appointed 34 caretaker chairmen.
According to the Governor the caretaker committee chairmen must reside within their areas.
He added that the culture of being a day caretaker chairman would not be tolerated.
The governor also warned that the caretaker chairmen should not destabilize the existing political structure they met in their areas adding that the party gave all elected the platform to be where they are today.
According to the governor the caretaker chairmen must place their local governments, the state and the country above personal or sentimental interests.
The Governor pointed out that despite inheriting a bankrupt local government system the caretaker chairmen must be delight, transparent and not to parade themselves beyond their level.
He also revealed that their appointment was based on available information and after rigorous screening, saying their political carrier has started and would be determinant of what they become tomorrow.
Alhaji Aminu Bello Masari assured that his administration would do its best to support the new caretaker chairmen and urged them to co-operate with the heads of local government administration who have been running the local governments for three years for the overall development of their areas.
The Governor recalled that the long-legal battle between the current government and the last PDP administration delayed the final decision on local government system in the state.
According to him government had won in Katsina and Kaduna courts but the PDP has moved to the Supreme Court saying the importance of having a structure at the local government was what necessitated the bending of the law to achieve objective of governance.
The governor prayed for God’s guidance for the newly appointed and sworn-in caretaker chairmen in the discharge of their duties.
