Doctor Edgar Emos Sunday who was represented by the special Adviser to the Governor, Doctor Adamu Babikkoi during the media parley stated that the Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri led administration has approved a lot of developmental projects in the state from the beginning of his second tenure in office, contrary to the perception that second tenures are mostly not as committed as the first ones.

The Principal Special Assistant therefore called on media practitioners in the state to ensure that the truth is always passed out to the general public as their social responsibility demanded that the general populace knows and understand what the government is doing.

reiterated the commitment of the fintiri led administration in repositioning the state and at the same time putting the welfare of the people in the forefront, assuring the administration’s determination of living no one behind and nothing untouched as long as the development of the state is concern.

 

 

 

The commissioner of information and strategy, Neido Geoffrey Kofulto assured that the Fintiri led administration will remain committed and transparent in the affairs of running the state.
