Nasarawa youths congratulate Sule on award as best governor in primary education
The Nasarawa Progressive Youth Development Association (NPYDA) has congratulated Abdullahi Sule on his recognition as ‘Best Governor in Primary Education and Rural Development’.
The state governor was recognised by UK-based media group, TheNigerian News at an event to mark its fifth anniversary in Abuja.
Kogi State Governor, Yahaya, Ambassador Tukur Buratai, Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed and the Executive Secretary of the Nigerian Christian Pilgrims Commission, Rev Yakubu Pam were other distinguished Nigerians awarded at the event.
The Emir of Lafia, His Royal Highness, Justice Sidi Bage (rtd) was the Royal Father of the Day while the Minister of Special Duties, Senator George Akume, chaired the event.
According to the company, Sule was nominated for using “basic education as a tool to fight insecurity and other criminal activities, a blueprint that is being adopted by other states. This has set the state on the right track for socio-economic development”.
Congratulating the governor, the NPYDA added that he “has adopted a multi-dimensional approach to reduce poverty level and create wealth and employment. The creation of a rural transformation agency is a game changer that has brought government closer to the rural areas and increase business activities, deflating insecurity to an appreciable level.”
In a statement signed by its President, Suleiman Adamu, the group further said Sule has impressed in other aspects of governance, including infrastructures, security and economy.
The Nasarawa youths, therefore, passed a vote of confidence on the governor, endorsing him for a second term.
The group, however, urged other governors in the country to emulate his leadership style.
