UNVEILING GOVERNOR MOHAMMED ABUBAKAR‘S IMPRESSIVE ACHIEVEMENTS IN OFFICE

  1. All glorifications and salutations to the Almighty God for giving us a capable and able leader in person of Muhammad Abdullahi Abubakar Esq.

He is on a mission to salvage the state.

That is why no bias judgement or hatred towards him has ever deterred him on his journey of changing the state for the better. Not even once! He is a man that is focused and determined that he does not compromise on the betterment of the state for some selfish interests.

No false publication can distract nor detract a man driven by the desire to bring about the positive ‘change’ he promised his people..
Nevertheless, as our able governor stays calm and focused in discharging his duties, some are taking the advantage of his decision not to publicise most of his achievements.

But we shall not relent to see these unscrupulous elements continue to detract him in the eyes of the general populace!
We can see clearly what their mission is; to continue to blackmail the Governor as far as they can!
