New Nimroz governor vows to eradicate graft

May 31, 2015 - 19:08

ZARANJ (Pajhwok): Eng. Samiullah has formally resumed work as new governor for southwestern Nimroz province amid pledges to root out administrative corruption and ensure security.

Samiullah was previously deputy minister for water and energy and was appointed as governor following suggestions by the Independent Directorate of Local Governance (IDLG) to President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani.

Speaking at a gathering arranged in his honour, he said he would also prevent the waste of water in the province and would develop plans for better management.

He said the vital Kamal Khan Dam in the province was in its final stages of completion and the president has promised the project would be completed soon.

“Supporting media is my priority. It is their job to report any wrong-doings so that officials could fix it,” he continued, adding that even if he were to remain in the position for one day he would fight administrative graft.
