Governor Muhammadu Jibrilla of Adamawa has apologised to women in the state for being under represented in his new appointments.
Jibrilla made the apology while swearing in 49 newly-appointed Development Area Administrators at the Government House, Yola on Tuesday.
He urged the women to bear with him, adding that he would compensate them in future political appointments.
NAN reports that only one woman, Ms Esther Pius, made the list of the 49 administrators sworn in.
“This is just the first major appointment made by this administration, I want to assure the women that they will be considered in future appointments,” he said.
The governor said that the administrators were selected on merit and should therefore work toward justifying the confidence reposed in them.
He said that his administration had embarked on various projects in major towns across the state and would soon reach out to the grassroots.
He advised the people of the state to be security conscious and support security agencies in the fight against insurgency.
Responding on behalf of the administrators, the Administrator of Madagali North Development Area, Mr Titus Ndzau, thanked the governor for the appointment and promised to deliver on their mandates.
