THE HONORABLE COMMISSIONER FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE AND RE-INTEGRATION REPRESENTING USSA LOCAL GOVERNMENT AREA IN TARABA STATE GOVERNMENT, DR. FILISTER IRARIMAM MUSA (Phd). PROFILE

The emergence of Dr. Filister Irarimam Musa came as a surprise to some of the stakeholders in Ussa Local Government Area, when the Executive Governor of the State, His Excellency, Dr. Agbu Kefas announced her as the Commissioner nominee to represent the good people of Ussa in his cabinet, She didn’t plan or lobby for the position, it was a divine calling directly from the Almighty, It came as a surprise when her name was called upon to serve in Governor Kefas administration. Based on her commitment to work and track record in her field of specialization where she has contributed meaningfully to the growth of the institution where she was shopped from. She is the second female that will be appointed as Commissioner in Ussa. First, was Barrister Bethsheba Riki, from Fikyu community, Since the creation of Ussa, it’s has been male activities all through, The Governor in his wisdom made a fantastic decision by giving the female gender an opportunity to serve in his cabinet because he understood the power of a woman. Ussa is one of the local government that benefited with this female gender inclusiveness. Globally, the woman gender contributes greatly in every field of endeavor they find themselves, also they can be trusted with power in terms of development and accountability, This cannot be over emphasized in any developed society, with the women on board the Kefas administration, it will help in strengthening and developing the state to a greater Height. It’s a rare opportunity taken and in line with other developed society around the globe. Also the Governor did extremely well by neglecting Ussa stakeholders when he asked them to come up with names, and while they are busy fighting themselves which name to present, The Governor was also busy searching for credible hands within Ussa community that will fit in his cabinet to represent the people of Ussa, taken them unaware to put a stop within the stakeholders. There is no doubt that are appointment is a round peg in a round hole.
