Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State on Saturday hailed the decision taken by the National Council of State at the end of the Council meeting in Abuja, asking the Apex bank, Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), to print more currency, allow the old notes to co-exist in order to cushion the effect of the redesigned notes by Nigerians.

Sule, while interacting with stakeholders in Farin Ruwa and Akun Development Areas in continuation of his reelection campaign, equally lauded the decision of the council for appealing to the Federal Government to obey the judgement of the Supreme Court which nullified the February 10 dateline earlier set for the expiration of the old Naira notes.

According to the governor, the resilience of Nigerians to remain patient in the face of the hardship occasioned by the redesigned notes is worthy of commendation.

“Why the APC governors are seeking for a six month extension before the old Naira notes are phased out is to allow for a level playing ground for Nigerians to leave a peaceful life, encourage economic growth and stimulation”

While disclosing his administration plans to harness the potentials of the Farin Ruwa waterfalls and Kwarra dam, particularly for the generation of electricity, the Governor appreciated traditional rulers and people of the area, for their support and cooperation that led to restoring peace and security in Ambaka previously bedevilled by bandits.

He called on the people not to waste their votes for political parties that are bound to lose the election but to vote for the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Earlier, the Governor who had a stopped over to inspect ongoing renovation work at the Government Girl’s College Wamba, Sule assured that his administration will take over the construction of the perimeter fencing of the school, renovation of staff quarters and the equipping of the newly refurbished science laboratory as well as made a personal donation of two hundred and fifty thousand naira, as well as books to the students.


He preached against acts capable of denying the people of the area dividends of democracy, urging them to desist from following politicians who, despite being in power for decades, failed to influence development to the area.

“You must have mental problem to continue to follow a politician who spent 16 years in power without bringing any tangible development to the area. What’s the use of power if one cannot influence projects to your people?” he stated.

At the palace of the Gwom Mama, HRH Alhaji Mustafa B. Adam, appreciated the Governor for all the developmental strides in the area, particularly the construction of the Sisin Baki/Kwarra road.
