From Mika’il Tsoho, Dutse
The Jigawa state governor Mallam Umar Namadi said, his administration will give more emphasis to youth development as it is critical to the development and progress of the state.
The governor disclosed this, in a statement signed by his press secretary Hamisu Muhammad Gumel and made it available to news men in Dutse.
“The youth are the backbone of our progress. Based on the recent mock census, the population of Jigawa State as of now stands at 7.5 million, and out of this, 3.2 million are youths. Therefore, it will not be wise for the state government to leave you behind. And this is one more reason we set up an agency that would cater for the needs of the youths in the state.”
He encouraged the people of the state to contribute to the governance of their affairs by giving advice to the government whenever there was a need for that.
Governor Namadi also assured the citizens of the state that his government is poised to bring positive development to the state, thereby improving the lives of the people.
“I want to assure the people of Jigawa State that, from the governor to the senators, House of Representatives members, and state assembly members, insha Allah, we will not fail you. You will not regret voting for us as your leaders. We will join hands to work for you because our only goal is Jigawa State,” he said.
“From the start of this journey, we outlined a 12-point agenda blueprint that was published in both Hausa and English and was widely shared with the people. We will implement these developmental ideas, and I urge every citizen of Jigawa to join hands with us and make this a reality.”
