Former Nigerian ambassador to Poland, Nuhu Bajoga was sworn-in today as the new Deputy Governor of Kaduna State.
He was sworn-in by the state Chief Judge, Justice Rahila Cudjoe, on Friday at Hassan Usman Katsina House, Kawo, Kaduna.
The swearing-in followed his confirmation by the state House of Assembly, on Thursday.
The new deputy governor is the fourth since the inception of the Fourth Republic, 13 years ago and the third to be so appointed.
The former Deputy Governor, Alhaji Mukhtar Yero, was sworn-in as the governor on 16 December, following the death of Governor Patrick Yakowa in a helicopter crash in Okoroba-Nembe, Bayelsa state.
Yero said at the swearing in ceremony that he was convinced that the ambassador’s patience, articulation and sensible leadership would help in moving the state forward.
According to him, the combination of the old and the young had also contributed immensely to his working relationship with the late Yakowa.
“ Yakowa was older than I am by 20 years and I tried as much as possible to obey him and not to create problem for him.
“ That gave me the idea that anybody that is going to be the deputy governor has to be somebody that is older than I am and has more experience than I have. More
