Nasarawa State Governor, Engineer Abdullahi Sule has vowed to sustain the excellent performance by his predecessor, Senator Umaru Tanko Al-makura and improve on it to the benefit of the people of the state.
Engineer Sule gave the assurance while playing host to the Director General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim, who was on a courtesy call at the Government House, on Monday.
The Governor commended the former governor for his development strides, which the present administration will sustain.
He particularly commended Senator Al-makura for embarking on empowerment programme, where the constituents benefited immensely.
Engineer Sule said he was excited when on his way to inspect ongoing road construction in Shinge area, saw a large crowd at the constituency office of Senator Al-makura, and was told that AL Makura was empowering another set of people drawn from his constituency.
“That activity got me excited. They were not doing it in order to show to me or to prove anything to me. Even without my knowledge, such activity was going on and I find that highly commendable,” the Governor stated.
Recall that only recently, Senator Al-makura shared generator sets to selected beneficiaries as part of his empowerment programme in aid of disadvantaged individuals, particularly from Nasarawa south senatorial district.
