The Zamfara State Governor-elect, Dauda Lawal, has constituted a 60-member transition committee in preparation for his assumption of office after his swearing-in on May 29.
In a statement issued yesterday, the media aide to the governor-elect, Sulaiman Bala Idris, says the committee is charged with the responsibility of liaising with the outgoing administration of Governor Bello Matawalle.
A former Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar, has been appointed as chair of the committee, which is said to be made up of technocrats, present and retired public office holders, as well as professionals and experts from all walks of life.
The Governor-elect’s media aide adds that the committee will engage Ministries, Departments, and Agencies of government (MDAs) and review the finances of the outgoing administration with a focus on receipts, assets, and liabilities, among others.
A date for the inauguration of the Governorship Transition Committee will be announced in due course.
