Bello stated this when he received members of the Niger State House of
Assembly who paid him a congratulatory visit following Wednesday’s
Supreme Court verdict that affirmed his victory at the 2019 poll.
The governor says the affirmation of his victory by the Supreme Court
will enable his administration to focus more on the administrative
activities, promising to work with all arms of government.
“We have a lot to do and we are working closely with State Assembly to
change the narratives and strategies with a view to seeing that in the
next two years we achieve a lot in terms of development and capacity
“I believe we have a good team in the State Assembly and at the Local
Government level and I believe working together will bring about
relative development in the state, he said”
According to him, “we have so many projects ongoing, most of which
started from the last tenure. This is time to consolidate and ensure we
complete most of them”, he added.
In the area of security, Governor Sani Bello assured that focus will be
more on combatting the challenges faced in the local government areas as
the State government has been working tirelessly to ensure adequate
security is provided for the people.
“The local government will focus more on security especially in Rafi,
Munya, Shiroro, Paikoro, Rijau and Mariga, those are the areas we are
having challenges with bandits”, he said.
He said the state government is working in conjunction with the local
government councils to ensure that they provide security for them.
“I hope in the next coming weeks we will see reasonable improvement when
it comes to security”, he added.

landmark victory at the Supreme Court as the will of God and
reaffirmation of the people’s mandate.
