He solicited the workers’ cooperation, noting that it was needed if he was to succeed in delivering on the new role.He added that having worked directly with Abdullahi, he could attest to the awesome responsibility that the job entails.The Senate is yet to confirm the appointment of new chairman and members of the commission, who the Federal Government had nominated.
