Abdullahi however said that since independence of Nigeria and the creation of Nasarawa state, respectively, there was remarkable progress, improvements and achievements despite the present challenges facing the nation.

Late General Sani Abacha

“I want to appreciate Late General Sani Abacha, the former Head of State, who gave approval for the creation of Nasarawa State and the founding fathers of Nasarawa State for their efforts towards the actualisation of the state.

“Since the creation of the state, unemployment and insecurity, among other challenges, as well as other developmental issues are being addressed.

Nasarawa State

“The creation of Nasarawa State honestly to a very large extend has brought development and progress to the state, you can go around, there is infrastructural development such as township roads, electricity, water supply, across the state and agricultural  development, among others.

Nasarawa State University

“In the areas of education and health, we have Nasarawa State University, Keffi; Federal Medical Centre, Keffi; Federal Polytechnic, Nasarawa; state Polytechnic, Lafia; School of Nursing and Midwifery; and Federal University, Lafia, among others.

“We also have cottage hospitals, general hospitals and specialist hospital, among other achievements.

“Even though government is trying in the areas of security and education, but I want to call on government to do more, give more attention to security and education because when there is no peace, there will be no development.

“And where there is no education, no development; so government should focus more on primary, secondary and tertiary education so as to take our state and the country at large to the next level of development,” he said.

Abdullahi also appealed to politicians to focus on issue-based campaign in the interest of peace and for the overall development of the nation as well as success of the 2023 general election.

“The time for fighting ourselves is over, our campaign should strictly be issue-based.

“I urge the youths not to allow themselves to be used by any politician.

I want to call on the youths to urge politicians who want to use them for thuggery to use their children and the politicians should be at the front line,” he added.

Tanko Al-Makura

The speaker noted that the achievements recorded in the state under the administrations of former governor Tanko Al-Makura and the present administration of Gov. Abdullahi Sule were as a result of good working relationship between the executive and the legislature in the state.

The state number three citizen assured the executive arm of the assembly’s continued readiness under his watch for effective partnership for the overall development of the state.

The speaker, while commending the media for their partnership with the House through adequate publicity, assured of continued open door policy in order to give everybody a sense of belonging in the state.
