Governor Mohammed Bago of Niger State has reaffirmed his commitment to delivering good governance to the people of the state.
Bago however promised not to go into window dressing of projects in order to showcase his achievements in his first 100 days in office.
The Governor, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Bologi Ibrahim, on Friday, said he would rather showcase quality projects that would last than indulge in ceremonies.
Meanwhile, He listed some of his achievements in his first 100 days in office to include the provision of a befitting edifice as a divisional police headquarters in Chanchaga following the demolition of the old structure built on a water pipeline more than 30 years ago, thereby denying over 200 residents of water supply.
Ibrahim equally identified the restoration of sanity on the Suleja-Abuja Highway, which eliminated gridlock on the road, adding that the governor also approved a monthly payment of N30m to the National Examination Council, and sponsored citizens for pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia.
The statement mentioned other achievements to include, “Procurement and distribution of thousands of bags of fertilizer and other farm inputs for the 2023 wet season at a subsidized price; distribution of food items worth N3bn across the 25 local government areas of the state as a palliative to cushion the effect of petroleum subsidy removal on citizens, distribution of 20 operational vehicles to the Niger State Command of the Nigeria Police, its sister agencies like the DSS, NSCDC, NDLEA and some other non-conventional security agencies to checkmate buying and selling of illicit drugs and curb other forms of crime in the state capital;among others.”
