On Tuesday, the Governor-elect of Sokoto state, His Excellency Ahmad Aliyu Sokoto, inaugurated a transition committee comprising 108 members. The committee, chaired by Ambassador Abubakar Sani Makaman Sokoto, includes the Deputy Governor-elect, His Excellency Mohammed Idris Gobir, as the deputy chairman, and former Permanent Secretary Alhaji Ibrahim Dadi Adire as the secretary.

According to the Governor-elect, the committee members were selected based on their wealth of experience, honesty, and track record of service in various sectors of human endeavor. Their mandate is to ensure a smooth transition from the outgoing administration of Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal to the incoming administration of His Excellency Alhaji Ahmad Aliyu Sokoto.

The committee’s terms of reference include working collaboratively with the outgoing administration’s transition committee to collate and document all available documents from Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs), as well as all assets and liabilities relating to the outgoing administration before May 29, 2023.

Additionally, the committee is to obtain and analyze reports from MDAs on all ongoing projects/programs in relation to their level of execution, fiscal profile, and constraints. The committee is also expected to prepare a comprehensive road map for a successful takeover from the outgoing administration.

The committee’s mandate also includes organizing a befitting swearing-in ceremony in collaboration with the outgoing administration’s transition committee and any other efforts necessary to ensure that the incoming administration makes a quick and laudable start.

The Governor-elect expressed his confidence in the committee’s ability to carry out their tasks effectively and urged them to work hard to ensure that all necessary information is documented, and nothing is left behind. The success of the committee’s work is crucial to ensuring a seamless transition and a successful start for the incoming administration.
