Niger gov pre­dicts quick eco­nomic re­cov­ery

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Abubakar Haruna Minna

The Niger State Gov­er­nor, Al­haji Abubakar Sani Bello, has ex­pressed op­ti­mism that the present eco­nomic hard­ship in the coun­try would soon be a thing of the past.

The Gov­er­nor ex­pressed this op­ti­mism yes­ter­day shortly af­ter the two rakaat prayers mark­ing the end of Ra­madan and com­mem­o­rat­ing this year’s Eid el-Fitr at the Minna ground.

He said, “The present eco­nomic sit­u­a­tion in the coun­try is a phase that will soon be his­tory. Our lead­ers at var­i­ous lev­els are com­mit­ted to find­ing last­ing so­lu­tion. For us in Niger State, we are metic­u­lously fash­ion­ing pro­grammes and poli­cies that will bail us out of the woods, set the state on a thresh­old of eco­nomic buoy­ancy and put the state on sound eco­nomic pedestal.” Eid pray­ing

In his good­will mes­sage to mark the Eid-el-fitr, a for­mer head of state, Gen­eral Ab­dulsalam Abubakar prayed for con­tin­ued peace in the coun­try.

Gov­er­nor Sani Bello who was ac­com­pa­nied by Gen. Ab­dul­salami Abubakar, later led mem­bers of his ad­min­is­tra­tion to the Hill Top res­i­dence of for­mer mil­i­tary pres­i­dent, Gen­eral Ibrahim Ba­bangida, to fe­lic­i­tate with him.
