The Management of the Kaduna State Ministry of Finance has announced a reshuffle. The ministry has not at any point in time had a substantive commissioner since the resignation of Suleiman Abdu Kwari became effective on January 7, 2019.

A statement made available by the state government made it known that Muhammad Saidu has been appointed as the new Commissioner of Finance.

Mr. Saidu is one among the 13 commissioners who were cleared by the Kaduna State House of Assembly in 2015. He was given the position of commissioner for local government in the first cabinet. He was appointed Chief of Staff in December 2016.

According to the statement, the mandate of Mr. Saidu is to tructure and reposition the finance ministry as soon as possible for the challenges of the second term of the Nasir El-Rufai government.

Idris Nyam, the erstwhile Permanent Secretary in the ministry, who has been appointed Accountant-General will assist him in carrying out his duties. Umar Waziri, who is the Ex Accountant-General, becomes Managing Director of the Kaduna Investment and Finance Company. The most senior director in the ministry will act as Permanent Secretary until further notice.

The statement by the government also made it known that Salisu Suleiman, the Principal Private Secretary, will cover the duties of the Chief of Staff in the absence of Muhammad Saidu.

All the new listed appointments become effective immediately.
