Residents of Nasarawa State have commended the government for its developmental projects across all sectors and their impact on the social and economic lives of the people.
A cross section of the residents said that the commendation had become imperative because of the “positive impact of the projects on the lives of the people”.
The Chairman, Wamba Local Government, Alhaji Musa Shauibu-Wayo, said the state government was “very compassionate and committed to rural development projects”.
“The re-election of Governor Tanko Al-Makura did not come to the people of the state as a surprise because of his good record. He has done his best and is still doing it,” he said.
“Everybody has acknowledged Al-Makura’s commitment to fighting corruption, insecurity, poverty, hunger, unemployment and youths and women restiveness.
“These efforts have yielded fruits and the economy is actually better,” he said. Apart from transforming the educational, agricultural, economic, health, judicial, commercial sector, he has also constructed some reasonable kilometres of roads in each local government area to boost the transportation system,” he said.
Mr Thomas Nico, a resident of Lafia, lauded Governor Al-Makura’s development efforts, saying that the projects had touched the lives of every segment of the population.
Another resident of Lafia, Francis Nansak, said that in spite of the security challenges, Al-Makura had set a pace for others to emulate.
He, however, urged him to do more in the area of job creation, youth empowerment and also create more access roads into the rural areas.
