It was the making of history at the 10th year anniversary of His Highness Alhaji Abubakar Ahmed Sabo Umar on the royal stool as Sarkin Loko.
In his remarks as chairman of the occasion, Senator Abdullahi Adamu who held sway as the 1st Executive Governor of Nasarawa State, admonished the entire citizens of Nasarawa State to be "law abiding" and support the policies, activities and initiatives of the current administration of Engineer Abdullahi A Sule.
In the same vein, the immediate past Governor of Nasarawa State, Senator Umaru Tanko Al-makura charged the people of Nasarawa State to be loyal and faithful to the government of Engineer Abdullahi A Sule, whilst assuring the attendees that Loko which used to be called "Loko London" for it's pioneering prominence and prestige as a center of trade and commerce in the old Northern province of Nigeria is now poised to reclaim it's historical position of being the leading light for economic activities in Nasarawa State under the banner policy thrust of Engineer Sule who is championing the "rapid industrialization" of the state.
The 10th Year Anniversary of His Highness, Mai Loko saw an outpouring of eloquent testimonials and encomiums on the loyal dedication and forthright character of Tijani Aliyu Ahmed, Secretary to the government and new Dan Masanin Loko.
His Excellency Engineer Abdullahi A Sule was also presented with a horse and conferred with a new twin title of "Barayan" Loko, just as he also holds the title of: "Barayan Lafia!"
On his part, Senator Walid Jibrin the National Patron of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association assisted those gathered that he will never succumb nor subscribe to politics of unfair and relentless negative condemnation of Government even if he is a member of the political opposition.
Former Senator Jibrin reaffirmed his unflinching commitment to continually support Governor Sule in his developmental strides, noting that the Fulani in active collaboration with Miyetti Allah have begun to deploy internal cultural mechanism to convince those armed Fulani bandits and kidnappers, who are still hiding in the bush, to put a halt to their criminal and nefarious activities. Just as His Excellency, Engineer Abdullahi A Sule, congratulating to the SSG, also vowed not to relent in curbing security challenges so as to make Nasarawa State, the destination of choice for investors.
