Niger State Governor, Abubakar Sani-Bello has said that the 100 days in the tenure of any administration is not a realistic measurement of its achievements.
DAILY NIGERIAN reports that Nigerian governors and other public office holders have formed a habit of celebrating 100 days in office as a way of eliciting public support towards their administration.
However, the governor, through the Secretary to the State Government, SSG, Ahmed Matane, said that the 100 days should be a pointer to the policy direction of the administration.
“100 days in the tenure of any administration is not a realistic measurement of its achievements, rather a pointer to the policy direction of the administration,” the secretary said.
Mr Matane said that the state government had continued to guarantee the peace and security of the people in the state regardless of their backgrounds.
The SSG stated that the state government is currently assessing the situation of things as well as realigning the priority areas in delivering its campaign promises to the people of Niger State.
Mr Matane appealed to the people of the state to continue to support the laudable programmes and policies of the government which are geared towards the betterment of the socio-economic development of the State.
He added that the state government has come up with novel policies and programmes that will challenge the people to be active participants in the governance process.
Mr Matane, therefore, reaffirmed the government’s continued commitment to the total transformation of key sectors of the economy in the state for the attainment of strategic development aspirations, especially its restoration agenda.
The SSG explained that the present administration in the state would not relent its efforts in the promotion of good governance and responsible leadership for the betterment of the people and development of the State.
