He also directed all the revenue-generating ministries, departments and agencies, MDAs, to live up to expectations while warning organisations that” generate and spend” not to dare him as the policy has been abolished.

Commending the governor’s effort the Speaker Niger State House of Assembly Abdulmalik Sarkindaji said the quick passage of the appropriation bill was due to the collaboration with the executive, he announced an increase of 720 million naira from the original budget estimate.
