Niger Governor-elect, Bago receives Certificate of Return

• Unveils 5 Point Plan of Action for the State

From John Adams, Minna

The Governor-elect of Niger state, Hon. Mohammed Umar Bago has received his certificate of returns from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) with a promise to make security and welfare of the people his major priority.

In his five points plan of action which he rolled out shortly after receiving his certificate of return alongside his Deputy Governor elect, Comrade Yakubu Garba and members of the state house of assembly elect on Thursday in Minna, the Governor elect promised to deliver first rate social amenities, revamping the infrastructure, expanding the state’s revenue base through enhancing the economic frontiers, and upholding accountability towards repositioning the State.

According to him, the five point plan of action represents his pledge to construct a prosperous and functional system that will meet the needs of every person in the state, assuring that he will not betray the trust of the people of the state to chart the path of the state to greater heights.

“Let it be known, dear Nigerlites, that we recognize the enormity of the tasks ahead. From security compromises to youth restiveness, we are acutely aware of the crisis and setbacks that undermine our progress.

“I promise you this; we will establish the root causes and drivers of these issues and take decisive actions to nip them in the bud. We will not rest until Niger state becomes a development model. Our hands are on the plough, our eyes are trained on new goals and our hearts committed to do well for Nigerlites.”

The Governor-elect further pledged to run an all inclusive and open government where no one would be given preferential treatment over another, adding that he would create a fair and equitable society that will benefit every citizen.

He called on his closest opponent, the governorship candidate of the PDP, Alhaji Isah Liman Kantigi to work with him saying that they would continue to remain allies despite the clashing partisan allegiances.

The INEC National Commissioner for Niger, Kogi and Kwara, Professor Mohammed Sani Adams handed the certificate of returns to the Governor-elect while the state INEC Commissioner handed the certificate of returns to the Deputy Governor and the elected members of the House of Assembly.

Speaking earlier, the INEC National Commissioner said the election in the state was one of the finest, freest and transparent elections the country had ever had.

He said that the 2023 general elections is a good moment for Nigeria which has strengthened democracy as the people voted freely for the people they believe would serve them and deliver on what is needed.

Adams urged the elected officials to serve the people and not themselves and invest not only on infrastructure but in human capital development.
