From Yakubu Mustapha, Minna
Governor Abubakar Bello of Niger State has identified continuity in governance, irrespective of political party affiliation, as the only panacea to the sustainable growth and development of the state.
The Governor disclosed this while speaking with Journalists in Minna.
He said the existing political system where any government that comes to power must want to embark on and commission its own projects has led to the systemic decay of most infrastructure.
According to him, it will be better to invest in the already existing infrastructure and build new ones when the need arises.
He stressed that it was retrogressive for any new government to abandon people -oriented projects started by its predecessor(s) to start a similar one.
He stated that, having reached 44 years since creation, Niger State deserved a Sustainable Development Action Plan that should be executed in the collective interest, overall growth and development of the people.
