Four Provincial Governors were sworn in by President Maithripala Sirisena at the Presidential Secretariat this afternoon, the President’s Media Unit said.
Maithri Gunaratne was sworn in as Governor for the Central Province, Sarath Ekanayake for the North Central Province, Peshala Jayaratne for North Western Province and M.L.A.M. Hizbullah for the Eastern Province.
All are useless characters. Actually, these posts should be abolished which are a waste of public money.

The president has become like a Santa Claus. He keeps presenting his favourites high posts of the country for them to enjoy power over people and comforts at the cost of people's money. The appointees, on the other hand, are shameless to accept the posts knowing that they do not deserve for such a job and also not ethical to live on poor people's money.

Sirisena keeps distributing government positions as if he is giving them out of his pocket. What do the public and the country gain from these so-called governors? Just mass wastage of money. An action like this causes the remaining handful of votes he has at present.

Mr. President, you should not appoint most of the criminals sans the wishes of the PEOPLE who voted yourself.

As tax payers can we see their job description?
