Inauguration: Governor Sule lauds Ex-PMB for infrastructural development, appointment of Nasarawa indigenes


Nasarawa State Governor, Abdullahi Sule, has commended the immediate past Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari, for his services to the Nation, especially the love and affection shown to the people and government of the state.

Governor Sule, who made the commendation on Monday, after taking his oath of office during a colourful ceremony at the Lafia Square, said without the support and intervention of the former President, Nasarawa will have been lagging in infrastructural development and appointment of indigenes of the state into key offices at the center.

According to him, the immediate past president amply demonstrated these in his appointment of sons and daughters of Nasarawa State into federal positions and the numerous transformative projects cited in the state.

“In this connection, we profoundly appreciate the expansion and dualization of Abuja-Keffi-Lafia-Makurdi highway; the completion and commissioning of the Loko-Oweto bridge; the commencement of Farin-Ruwa Hydro Power Project and take-over of Lafia Cargo Airport among several others,” he said.

The Governor, however welcomed the inauguration of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, describing the former Lagos State governor as a tested leader and patriot whose commitment to the overall development of Nigeria is outstanding.

“We have no doubt that his antecedents and past achievements in the development of Nigeria will be brought to bear in his present leadership for the benefit of all Nigerians. As we assure Mr. President of our loyalty and support at all times, may the Almighty Allah grant him more wisdom and the capacity to lead Nigeria to greater heights,” he stated.
