Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal

For the first time, Sokoto’s 2016 budget will get input from community leaders and the generality of the people at the grassroots level in the 23 local government areas of the state, Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal has said.

The Governor disclosed this Saturday in Sokoto when he addressed members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) drawn from all parts of the state.

“We will contact the cross section of the people of the state with a view to get their useful inputs into the 2016 proposed budget.

“This is to make sure that any project that we will undertake would have been agreed upon by the people and would improve their living standard.

“In this direction, we will execute projects that the people of the state say they want, so as to ensure that their lives are bettered,” he added.

Tambuwal also promised to complete all the projects he had inherited from his predecessor, Sen. Aliyu Wamakko.

The governor further stated that his administration plans to initiate new projects, programmes and policies to sustain the current tempo of the state’s development.

“We will soon initiate such projects and give same to members of the party who have the expertise to handle such projects.

“In the same vein, the generality of the people of the state will have their lives tremendously improved in the areas of the rehabilitation of roads, hospitals, schools, drainages and other infrastructure,” Tambuwal, averred.

The governor commended the members of the state House of Assembly for cutting short their recess to screen and approve his 23 commissioner-nominees.

Tambuwal also maintained that the formation of the state executive council would greatly bolster the zeal and determination of his administration to move the state forward.
