Atiku’s daughter forfeits salary, allowances as commissioner

Dr Fatima Atiku, the daughter of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and newly appointed Adamawa State Commissioner of Health has forfeited her salary and allowances for use in revitalizing the health sector in the state.

Speaking with journalists in Yola on Friday after being sworn –in along with 21 other commissioners, Ms Atiku said that she was making the sacrifice because of the numerous challenges in the health sector.

“I am very grateful to the governor for appointing me to head the Health Ministry,” she said. “The ministry is the most challenging because of the insurgency problem that had caused some damage to the health system in the state. For this reason, I shall be donating my salary and allowances for use in enhancing the delivery of healthcare service in the state.”

Speaking earlier while administering the oath of office on the Commissioners, Governor Bindow Jubrilla said that their appointment was based on merit and urged them to join hands with him in bringing the desired change in the state.

“Your loyalty is to the people of Adamawa, whom you represent, and not to me,” he said.
