Nasarawa State Commissioner of Information, Culture And Tourism Comrade Dogo Shammah has said the statewide tour of Governor Abdullahi Sule in commemoration of his two years in office was devoid of negativity.
Shammah called on the people of the State to shower unflinching support to the incumbent administration of Engineer Abdullahi Sule for rapid and prudent development to thrive.
The Commissioner disclosed this in an exclusive interview with selected Journalists, however, maintained that the brain behind the tour was for the Governor to appreciate the people for the mandate given to him to pilot the affairs of the State.
“Again the Governor asked questions with follow up response from stakeholders across party line in attendance with the motive to make amends where necessary”.
“Meet the people tour was first of its kind in the history of Nasarawa State, adding that the response of the people from Umuashia in Toto Local Government to Lafia Local Government is a clear indication of the acceptability of Engineer Abdullahi Sule”.
Hon Dogo Shammah disclosed that the Governor in two years, despite the outbreak of coronavirus pandemic has done well in all ramifications especially in the area of security.
Saying our administration was able to defeat insecurity at the border town of Awe, Keana, and other crisis-prone Local Governments like Doma, Toto, and amongst other crisis-stricken Communities.
He explained that the people of Nasarawa State can attest that the Governor has exhibited the core value of democracy, ranging from free medical outreach across the state, strengthening security paving way for the presence of investors.
He, however, maintained that the endorsement of the Governor across the state would not deter Engineer Abdullahi Sule from doing the needful especially in the completion of abandoned projects ranging Aliyu Akwe Doma Banquet hall, completion, and equipping Dalhatu Araf Specialist Hospital, completion of Akwanga and Keffi General Hospitals.
Other projects according to him include the Centre for Disease Control, Youth empowerment, the construction of 15.5km Sisin-Baki-Kwara road to Farin Ruwa Dam site, and the airport project which was at a 99.5 percent completion stage as well as handing over of N5.4bn Farin Ruwa project to the Federal Government.
Comrade Dogo Shammah disclosed that the project if completed would generate fifty percent megawatts, saying the state would consume just 5 megawatts, while the remaining would be distributed to other consumers for profit.
Other breakthroughs according to the Commissioner of Information, Culture and Tourism include the introduction of the Central Billing System which was meant to block leakages as well as improves the Internally Generated Revenue of the State.
