I WILL RUN AN ALL INCLUSIVE GOVERNMENT, SAYS ENGINEER SULE

Nasarawa State governor, Engineer Abdulllahi Sule has assured the people of the state that he will run an all inclusive government just like the previous administration of former governor, Senator Umaru Tanko Al-makura.

Engineer Sule gave the assurance while hosting a delegation of the Gbagyi community from Toto Local Government Area that paid him a Sallah homage at the Government House on Friday.

While noting that the time for politics was over, Engineer Sule called on citizens of the state to all join hands together to build the Nasarawa State of their dream.

“There is time for politics and time for governance. Let us all come back and build Nasarawa State together,” the governor said.

He restated the determination of his administration to create employment for the youths through the establishment of industries to be driven by the private sector.

To this end, Engineer Sule disclosed that representatives of the government are reviewing a Memorandum of Understanding with legal practitioners representing a private sector for the establishment of a rice plantation in Toto Local Government Area.

The governor equally informed the delegation that his administration is pushing for the creation of new federal roads in the state, as well as ensuring that all federal highways are rehabilitated.

He called on the people to assist in identifying would-be criminals, with a view to alerting the security agencies towards ensuring lasting peace in the area.

Engineer Sule promised to look into the demands made by the Gbagyi community.

Earlier, leader of the Gbagyi delegation and Dada Yako of Nakuse, HRH Ishiaku Dahilo Auta, congratulate the governor for a well deserved victory at the polls, praying for God to give him the strength, courage and wisdom to pilot the affairs of the state.

The royal father said the Gbagyi community were at the Government House to identify with the governor and his administration and to show appreciation for the creation of the long awaited Yelwa Chiefdom. He urged the governor to consider the immediate take-off of the chiefdom.

The Dada Yako drew the attention of the governor to the fact that his stool, created by the first civilian administration of Senator Abdullahi Adamu, has remained on third class status since, urging the governor to upgrade the stool of the Dada Yako.

He equally called for the creation of another chiefdom, Kporodu chiefdom in Nasarawa Local Government Area.

While lamenting the deplorable condition of the Nasarawa/Toto federal highway, describing it as a “death trap”, the royal father called on Engineer Sule to bring pressure to bear on the Federal Government to rehabilitate the road.
