Jibrilla urged on all Adamawa residents to take advantage of the relative peace enjoyed in the state to spread a message that will strengthen the peace and harmony that prevailed throughout the fasting period.
Umaru Jibrilla notes that, “we are progressively consolidating on the gains recorded in the state because in the face of daunting challenges, the people of Adamawa State have remained prayerful, resisted hate speech and actions that would have been inimical to the progress of our dear state.
“To build on these gains we shall remain focused on our quest to provide dividends of good governance, especially critical infrastructure such as roads and standard drainage system, healthcare services, rehabilitation of schools and among other infrastructures.”
He called for ceaseless prayers and support for the administration of President Muhammad Buhari so as to restore the image of the country, maintain the fight against graft and recover looted funds which will boost the nation’s economy and make life better and meaningful for all Nigerians.
Jibrilla said, “We in the North East can only show gratitude to the President for reclaiming many local government areas that were held captive by Boko Haram insurgents and for the establishment of a commission to rebuild the region”.
