“There can never be enough time for whoever, no matter how closely in tune in the affairs of Distinguished Senator Tanko Almakura, to explain this unique character of a man, who is an enigma and whose achievements in the development of our dear state are yet unsurpassable”

“There is no doubt that the passion he has brought to bear in the service of the people of Nasarawa State is not only mind-buggling but almost an obsession.”

“To be honest with you, Almakura is a role model per excellence.
His multiferious achievements between 2011 to 2015 are legendary and were really what spurred me into contest for the state House of Assembly election in 2015”

“I was really impressed by his commitment, so I wanted to be part of his success story,” the speaker said.

Balarabe Abdullahi asserted that the current ruling APC in the country owed a lot to Almakura, as the APC, no doubt, is an offshoot that resulted in the sacrifices made by Senator Almakura and Nasarawa State.
