Sokoto gov-elect restates commitment to nine-point agenda

The Governor-elect of Sokoto State, Ahmad Aliyu,  has promised to vigorously pursue his nine-point agenda to rejuvenate the state and its people.

Aliyu, who won on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, said the agenda was to improve and modernise the state health care, education, local government autonomy, social development, security, infrastructure, among others.

Speaking with journalists shortly after he was declared winner by the Independent National Electoral Commission, Aliyu said, “My administration will listen to the yearnings and aspirations of the citizens with a view to meeting my campaign promises.

“I will strengthen the civil service by making it more productive, and ensure payment of salaries, pension, and gratuity as and when due.”

The governor-elect expressed gratitude to Senator Aliyu Wamakko, the Minister of Police Affairs, Alhaji Maigari Dingyadi, Sokoto State APC Chairman, Alhaji Sadiq Achida, other party stalwarts, stakeholders, and party loyalists for their support which facilitated his victory.

He called on his contenders at the polls to join hands with him in the quest to make Sokoto State better.

Meanwhile, Wamakko, who is the leader of the APC in Sokoto State has urged the party’s supporters to behave maturely and avoid violence while celebrating the party’s victory.

He gave the advice in a statement on Monday by his media aide, Bashar Abubakar.

He said,“We have seen a peaceful contest that led to the victory of the APC. Our stakeholders have shown dedication to the party’s standard as peace-loving party in the state and the country, we should sustain the tempo.”
