Nasarawa State Governor, Engineer Abdullahi Sule has vowed to sustain the flame lit by his predecessor, Senator Umaru Tanko Al-makura (APC, Nasarawa South) and to keep it burning.
Engineer Sule made the vow while playing host to the Director General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim, who was on a courtesy call at the Government House, on Monday.
The Governor commended the former governor for his development strides, which the present administration will sustain.
He particularly commended Senator Al-makura for embarking on empowerment programme, where the lawmaker twice, empowered the members of his constituency.
Engineer Sule said he was excited when while on his way to inspect ongoing road construction in Shinge area, he saw a large crowd at the constituency office of Senator Al-makura, where he learnt that the senator was empowering another set of people drawn from his constituency.
“That activity got me excited. They were not doing it in order to show to me or to prove anything to me. Even without my knowledge, such activity was going on and I find that highly commendable,” the Governor stated.
Recall that only recently, Senator Al-makura shared generator sets to selected beneficiaries as part of his empowerment programme in aid of disadvantaged individuals, particularly from Nasarawa South.
“We are doing the best to keep the flame lit by the former governor. That flame is burning very bright,” Engineer Sule said.
