According to Abdullahi Hassan Maalim, County Secretary and chairperson of the Committee of Assumption of office of the Governor, the two newly elected office bearers will be sworn in on Thursday August 25, 2022.

Meanwhile congratulatory messages continue to pour in for the Governor elect with the latest coming from the Council of Governors.

“We deeply congratulate FCPA Ahmed Abdullahi, Governor-Elect and H.E Ahmed Muhumed Abdi, Deputy Governor-Elect, Wajir County. H.E Abdullahi is a Finance expert and previously served as the Pioneer Governor of the County,” reads part of the statement from the Council of Governors.
