Yobe State Governor, Mai Mala Buni has approved the redeployment of Malam Abdullah Bego from information ministry to head the newly established Ministry of Wealth Creation, Empowerment, and Employment Generation.
While thanking the governor for the confidence reposed on him, Bego added that: “Since he assumed the leadership of Yobe State a little over two years ago, Governor Buni has been obsessed with the idea of making demonstrable and remarkable impact in the lives of the people of the state, an idea that he has been working successfully to crystalise.
“He wants to ensure that the government becomes a catalyst for generating the jobs that people need to support their lives. He wants to ensure that the government can provide the support systems necessary for addressing poverty and unemployment and generating the conditions that could help forge a wealthy, healthier society,”
The establishment of the new Ministry of Wealth Creation, Empowerment, and Employment Generation demonstrates the commitment of the governor to achieving these objectives and to painting over many years of economic stagnation inflicted on our state by the ruthless and senseless Boko Haram/ISWAP insurgency.
Bego concluded by extolling the virtues of his principal, adding, that “I remain totally committed – and excited – to being a part of the team that would work to implement His Excellency Governor Mai Mala Buni’s vision in these all-important areas of socio-economic endeavour. That the governor has chosen me to lead the team is an honour I will both cherish for the rest of my life and work every single day to justify.
“To the throngs of friends, colleagues, and family who have who have been expressing words of support and prayer since the announcement of my redeployment, thank you. Insha Allah I will work to earn the support that you so readily show.
“And I pray that Almighty Allah (SWT) will continue to grant His Excellency Governor Buni the wisdom and energy that are so vital to the achievement of his noble and lofty developmental objectives for Yobe State,” he concluded.
