Sokoto State governor and a presidential aspirant of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Aminu Tambuwal, has promised that his government will initiate mechanisms that will make -inter-governmental relations among the various tiers of government development-oriented.
The former Speaker of the House of Representatives made this promise in Akwanga, Nasarawa State, northern Nigeria when he met PDP delegates from the state.
Tambuwal observed that Nasarawa State’s geographical location and proximity to the nation’s capital will be fully maximized for the benefit of Nasarawa people and Nigeria.
“The time has come for us to convert the closeness of Nasarawa State to the seat of power into real economic and developmental gains for the people of the state. I am here today to tell you that the privilege of proximity to the seat of power will give you the reward of deserved gains under my leadership,“ he declared.
The Presidential hopeful regretted that the state and other places are witnessing clashes between farmers and herders currently, stressing that the current Federal Government seems not to have a solution.
Tambuwal said his government will do everything possible to ensure that peace reigns all over Nigeria.
“Our Strength as a Nation lies in our diversity and we must use it to become one of the greatest countries of the world. I am that leader that will make Nigerians proud on the International scene,” he said.
On his part, the Nasarawa State PDP Chairman, Hon. Francis Inokila stated that Tambuwal’s antecedents recommend him for National leadership.
“Your antecedents recommend you for National leadership. Your former colleague who is here with us has confirmed that you are one dependable Nigerian who always seeks the common good and who is focused on the National interest,” he said.
