The deputy governor of Bauchi State ,Arch Audu Sule Katagum has been sworn in following his screening and confirmation by State House of Assembly.
In his address during the occasion held at Multipurpose indoor sports hall, Governor Mohammed Abubakar enjoined him to ensure that prudence and accountability are his watchword in the discharge of his duties.

“Now we will hit the ground running, we will put our heads together to ensure that the people of the state get the best out of the administration,” he said.
Katagum also promised to ensure the re-election of the governor for a second term come 2019.
