Niger State Governor and Chairman, North Central Governors Forum, Abubakar Sani Bello has showered encomiums on Nigerlites for their unflinching support for his administration’s policies and programmes.
Governor Abubakar Sani Bello appreciated the people of State for their patience and understanding during the recent State roads closure, which he explained is meant to fasttrack work on the Minna-Bida road, being the current motorable road that connects the North and Southern parts of the country.
The Governor reiterated for the umpteenth time, that his administration has no personal interest, rather than the overall best interest of Nigerlites.
He maintained that the short roads closure has demonstrated to the Federal Government, how frustrating the deplorable state of roads in Niger State have been and are affecting lives and economic activities.
The Governor explained that the action of his administration was not meant to inflict pain on the good people of the State but has provoked a new level of positive collaboration between the State and the Federal Government towards fixing the Federal roads that transverse the State.
He said during his meeting with the critical stakeholders from both the federal and state government, he has stated categorically, the position of the State as regards to the need to salvage the situation.
While acknowledging the roles played by critical relevant stakeholders and the general public in ensuring that the closure was supported by all and sundry, Governor Sani Bello enjoined the people not to be disappointed on the decision to lift the ban.
He also urged the people to continue to support his administration as he is poised more than ever, to deliver on the expectations of the dividends of democracy.
He thanked the Chief of Staff to the president, Professor Ibrahim Gambari, at whose instance the Abuja meeting was held, were decision to review the ban on roads closure was taken.
