Governor Aminu Bello Masari of Katsina state has announced plans by his government to create new Ministries and restructure others to fast track his policies and programs in the remaining four years of his administration
Masari, who made the disclosure while swearing in 14 new Special Advisers, said the decision was because of the yawning need for realignment and readjustments in the executive council to meet the challenges of development.

Speaking shortly after the oath of office, the Governor reminded those reappointed that the decision should be seen as a demonstration of the level of confidence in them by his administration.
He said ’’those newly appointed may be new members of the state executive council but not new to APC administration in the state, the new appointments is like putting a square peg in a square hole’’.
He charged them to put people first in all their conducts in office and to limit celebrations due to the insecurity situation, although relative peace had been restored
