The Grand Khadi of Bauchi state, Khadi Ningi, on Monday sworn in Audu Sule Katagum as the Deputy Governor of Bauchi state, following his recent screening and confirmation by the Bauchi state House of Assembly.
The swearing-in was held at the Multi-purpose Indoor Sports Hall, Bauchi with the administration of the oaths of allegiance and office by the Grand Khadi in the absence of the State Chief Judge, Justice Rabi Talatu Umar.
In his acceptance speech shortly after taking the oath of office, Katagum said, “I want to assure the people of Bauchi that we will work for you. In fact, it is now that we will start working for you. There is nothing we are faced with now, than to hit the ground running, to look for the people and meet with them to return the governor back to power for a second term.”
In his address, the Bauchi State Governor, Mohammed Abubakar, charged his new deputy to abide by the oath of office, allegiance and abide by the rule of law and code of conduct in the discharge of his duties.
He then urged the new deputy governor to be loyal and support him in the running of the affairs of the state in line with the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 as amended.
