Gov Bello is on course-APC stal­wart

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Ahmed Tahir Ajobe, Minna

An All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC) chief­tain in Niger State, Malam Nma Kolo, has com­mended Gover­nor Abubakar Sani Bello for his “care­ful and dili­gent ap­proach” to gov­er­nance in the state.

The for­mer di­rec­tor gen­eral of youth mo­bi­liza­tion in the state be­rated the op­po­si­tion for scor­ing the ad­min­is­tra­tion low dur­ing the 100 days cel­e­bra­tion, de­scrib­ing the po­si­tion by some peo­ple that the gover­nor was not pre­pared for of­fice as “un­char­i­ta­ble.”

“Gover­nor Abubakar Bello should rather be com­mended for the painstak­ing ap­proach that he has brought into the gov­er­nance in Niger State, in­stead of be­ing vil­i­fied by the op­po­si­tion,” he said.

He said the ad­min­is­tra­tion had taken some com­mend­able steps to­ward lay­ing solid foun­da­tions that would pro­pel de­vel­op­ment when the cab­i­net is fi­nally in place.

“The restruc­tur­ing of min­istries for in­stance is a sig­nif­i­cance step in re­duc­ing the cost of gov­er­nance and mak­ing the civil ser­vice ef­fec­tive.

“In the area of agri­cul­ture, he has put in place modal­i­ties that would cre­ate jobs, en­hance ru­ral liv­ing, em­ploy youths and raise the pro­file of crops that Niger State has com­par­a­tive ad­van­tages. You would note that these ef­forts are de­void of fun­fair and the projects are not es­o­teric but real eco­nomic pack­ages aimed at the peo­ple,” he noted.
