Remove ‘His Excellency’ Title From My Name -Governor-Elect

Katsina State governor-elect, Umaru Dikko Radda, has indicated that he would not want to be addressed with the title, “His Excellency”, while in office as the state’s chief executive.

Instead, he said he would prefer to be addressed as Mr Governor or simply by his name till he leaves office before citizens of Katsina can decide whether he is excellent or not based on his administration’s performance.

Speaking at an interactive session with journalists in Abuja, the governor-elect said there was nothing spectacular about being a governor.

He said: “I don’t like the word Excellency because one can only be called an Excellency after the administration has ended, at that time people will determine whether I am Excellent or not. So, I think it’s better people should call me Mr. Governor than to call me His Excellency, I will prefer that and that will not put my head somewhere.

“I want to be as normal as anybody because I don’t want that thing (Excellency) to get into my head, that’s why I don’t want the world Excellency attached to my name now but I will prefer if people can call me Mr. Governor or my name Mallam Dikko Radda.”

Radda noted that his administration’s focus would be the security of the state, civil service reforms, health and education, among others.
