To ensure proper execution, Nasarawa State Governor Abdullahi Sule has directed traditional rulers to monitor project execution for the benefit of their communities.
Governor Sule gave the directive in Jenkwa Development Area of Obi local government area of the state in continuation of his development areas tour.
He said about twenty schools would be built and others rehabilitated in Obi local government area while projects such as roads construction and sinking of boreholes would also be provided for the people of the area.
Governor Sule said “my Government will be building 20 schools in Obi Local Government Area including a storey building of 8 classrooms and offices in Junior Secondary Schools Duddukuru.”
“As traditional rulers I want you to supervise and report anything wrong because I want to develop education in the State.”
Governor Sule who said he was in the area to canvas for their support during the 2023 elections in favour of his party the All Progressive Congress described the Jenkwe community as one of the area that used to have Commissioner in the state cabinet but could not make it in his administration explaining that he could not offer them Commissioner slot in his first tenure because when he came on board he allowed party stakeholders across local government areas to choose commissioner for him and the choice by them was based on areas that gave large number votes at the election.
He said “the party stakeholders in their suggestion would not be good to pick commissioners in the area that gives low votes and ignore those with high votes.”
While appealing to them to vote for all APC candidates Governor Sule advised them not to heed those that would deceive them to direct them where they cannot make an impact in the election.
“Don’t make the mistake of 2019 so that you will be part of every consideration in the state affairs.”
“You have some key positions in the state and to have a commissioner in the next cabinet would be an addition to you.”
Earlier, A.A Sule/Akabe Campaign Council chairman, Senator Abubakar Sodangi said in terms of votes accumulation Jenkwe Development Area is a community to reckon with politically in the state.
He said “the Campaign team is before the traditional rulers of the area to talk to their subjects to vote APC in all elections considering the number of projects distributed to the area by Governor Sule administration.”
