While noting that noting that the President had since assumption of office made practical efforts to unite every segment of the country, Bello appealed to Nigerians to support the Federal Government in its determination to right the wrongs of the past.

“Every country has its unique challenges, but is making effort to overcome these challenges collectively irrespective of its cultural, religious or political differences.

“Nigeria is a blessed country with the prospect of a great nation,” the governor added.

According to Bello,  his administration had since assumption of office in the state taken bold steps to improve critical infrastructures such as road, rural electrification, water and quality health-care for the people of the state.
