Governor Abubakar Bello of Niger State does not want to be called the executive governor but rather Mr Governor. He has, therefore, directed that as from January 2016, he should be addressed simply as “Mr Governor.”
He disclosed this on Monday during the swearing in ceremony of five new Niger State High Court Judges at the Government House, Minna.
The Governor also directed that all “insignia, seal, emblem, letter heads and complementary cards” should drop the designation of “Executive Governor”, while he is simply addressed as “Governor of Niger State.”
“At this point, I find it necessary to inform everyone that henceforth, starting from 1st of January 2016, the Governor shall be addressed as simply ‘the Governor of Niger State and not as the Executive Governor’,” he said.
