“With his comradeship spirit, power of negotiation, and stabilizing strategy, he will help his principal to achieve their agenda of #StrongerTogether for Niger State.
“I want to urge Nigerlites to work with these two powerful technocrats to achieve a better and stronger democracy, on the path of progress and prosperity.
