    The governor reiterated his resolve to upholding the social contract he made with the people when he took the oath of office, stating that his enthusiasm and dedication to strengthen peace, security, and enshrine good administration for the benefit of the people remained steadfast.

    “Despite the difficulties we confront, we must remain united and work toward creating a wealthy state and country. Without a doubt, we are not where we should be. Nigeria is a great country with a wealth of resources, opportunities, and abilities, all of which have yet to be completely exploited, much like our lovely state,” he stated.

    The governor exhorted the populace to support their government and have faith in their country.

    “We must unite and work together to improve the fortunes of our beloved country,” he continued.

    “Democracy is a work in progress, and that must also be acknowledged! As we commemorate Nigeria’s independence, we ought to consider how to strengthen our democratic institutions. We must work to level the playing field for all political parties, ensure fair resource distribution throughout the State, advance gender equity, fight corruption, and advance every citizen’s inalienable rights, particularly those of the most marginalized groups, such as women, children, IDPs, and people with disabilities (PWDs). The commitment to these ideas must come from leaders at all levels, civil society organizations, interest groups, and every individual.
