Gover­nor Mo­hammed Badaru Abubakar of Ji­gawa State says the wind of change un­der Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari is ev­i­dently man­i­fest­ing in ev­ery sec­tor in the coun­try.

He spoke yesterday in a state­ment to mark Nige­ria’s 55th in­de­pen­dence an­niver­sary. He said change had be­come ev­i­dent in im­proved sup­ply of petroleum prod­ucts and elec­tric­ity.

Badaru said while con­grat­u­lat­ing Nige­ri­ans on at­tain­ing 55 years of na­tion­hood that this year’s an­niver­sary was sym­bolic as it came un­der a new ad­min­is­tra­tive dis­pen­sa­tion.

The gover­nor ap­pealed to the peo­ple of his state to be pa­tient as his gov­ern­ment was work­ing hard to en­sure that all chal­lenges were be­ing ad­dressed to lay a solid foun­da­tion for fu­ture de­vel­op­ment.

“All these changes are as a re­sult of the dy­namic lead­er­ship be­ing pro­vided by Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari. I there­fore con­grat­u­late all Nige­ri­ans as our na­tion at­tains 55 years of na­tion­hood. As we celebrate, I ap­peal to all cit­i­zens to give max­i­mum sup­port as we fo­cus our energy on build­ing a more pros­per­ous and peace­ful na­tion. For us in Ji­gawa State, we call for un­der­stand­ing and pa­tience”, he said.
