Niger commissioner proffers solutions to recession
Niger state commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism, Mr. Jonathan Vatsa has identified total commitment, obligation to the state and understanding on the part of the people as solutions to the prevailing economic recession facing the state in particular and the nation in general.
Vatsa stated this in a statement issued in Minna, expressing the readiness of Governor Abubakar Sani Bello’s administration to see the state through the path of greatness despite the recession.
He said the administration has from inception poised to always take the interest of the people above all others, in the face of every challenge, adding that the government was also aware of the need for the support of the people to be able to achieve its set objectives.
“We call on all our people to meet up with their obligations like paying their taxes , playing their roles diligently whenever they found themselves in positions of responsibility, remain productive by identifying areas of comparative advantages, especially agriculture, and most importantly protect public institutions and property”
He assured that whatever resources is available to the government, will be judiciously used for the best interest of the state, adding that “since this government came into being, we have not put anybody in doubt about the readiness of the government to block areas of leakages and avoid wastages”.
“We are aware we have a date with history and the restoration agenda in key areas we set to achieve, that is why we are doing every thing possible to make sure that we have projects ongoing in every sector of the state’s economy to lubricate the system and also focus on priority areas that have multiplier effect on the people at short, medium and long term basis”
The Commissioner therefore urged the people to support the government and show considerable level of understanding of the economic situation that has caused recession in the country, which invariably did not exclude Niger state.
He stated that the government will continue to leverage on the basic tenet of democracy that encourages engagements and be as open as possible as the economic situation functions along the variables of recovery but reiterated the need for the support and understanding of the people in tackling the challenges.
