Yobe Dep Gov weeps at swearing-in

Post  Admin on Tue Feb 03, 2009 3:18 pm

Younger brother of former Governor of Yobe State, Senator Mamman Ali, Abubakar Danlami Ali, wept profusely yesterday while being sworn in as the new deputy governor of the state.

The deputy governor, whose nomination was endorsed by the Yobe State House of Assembly Wednesday last week had to wait until his brother was buried on Friday before he was sworn in.

Ali, who was born in 1966, was sworn in by the State Chief Judge, Baba Saje Gujba, at the Wawa Hall within the Government House in Damaturu yesterday.

The new deputy governor, who was a permanent secretary in the state civil service, is a member of the Nigeria Society of Engineers (NSE) and married with two wives and four children.

After the oath of office was administered on the new deputy governor, the Governor, Ibrahim Geidam, explained that his nomination was done after due consultations with various stakeholders noting that it was decided that Danlami’s elevation was the best way to honour the late governor and show appreciation for his efforts towards the development of Yobe State.

He stated that his predecessor in the last 20 months led the state and discharged his duties with absolute commitment and dedication. He added that he “started and did a difficult job well”.

The new governor said they would continue to be inspired by the sacrifice of past leaders particularly the efforts of “our late governor and leader, Senator Mamman Ali, towards building and entrenching a transparent and accountable government, a disciplined, egalitarian, fair and just society based on the demands of our good people.”

The late governor died in Florida, USA last week.
