Abdullahi Sule, the Nasarawa state Governor has stated that President Muhammadu Buhari will be acknowledged by Nigerians when he leaves office in 2023.

The governor made the statement on Tuesday while speaking to State House Correspondents following a closed-door meeting with Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

According to Abdullahi Sule, the Buhari administration had overhauled the agriculture, oil, and gas sectors.

He said;

“I told the President that some of your efforts for the country will be more appreciated when you leave office. Today, you are the architect of the Ajaokuta-Kaduna-Kano gas pipeline. Recently Nasarawa State signed an MoU after our gas roundtable in the State capital Lafia, where the top management of NNPC were around. We discussed gas utilisation and we are bringing our own experience of what happened with the West African gas pipeline, where it was tapped from Sagamu into Ikeja and all the industries there are utilising gas.”

The governor added;

“So for a country like Nigeria that has over 200 trillion standard cubic feet of gas, to say that somebody is building a gas pipeline for the utilisation of gas, I don’t think that is a small thing but a lot of people will not understand this until may be when the President leaves office and in future, when we begin to have LPG everywhere for cooking and LNG so that most of our vehicles will convert to gas rather than petrol. Many cannot see now what is going to happen tomorrow and by that time they will say who did this and they will be told its President Buhari and people will bless him.”

When asked about the purpose of his visit to Mr President, Sule stated that he was there to appreciate President Buhari for the support Nasarawa State has received in the area of security, which has greatly aided in the maintenance of calm in the state.

“I came to express our great appreciation to the President for the great support we have continued to receive in the area of security. You must have heard there were several joint operations of the Special Forces; the Military, Police, Airforce and Navy in the two Local Government Areas that are bordering Abuja, Toto and Karu. The various operations have been very successful. When we heard recently that some of our schools were being targeted, we privately approached and the right actions were taken. We thank God that we have been able to dislodge those ones,” he said.

The governor stressed that;

“Also we are here to express our happiness that as a result of some level of peace we have in Nasarawa State, we have been tagged as a State that is currently number one in sesame seed production, number two in yam production, number two in cassava and number five in rice production in the country.”

He further stated that the recent construction of the 330MVA Thermal line in Lafia, which originates from the Niger-Delta, has greatly aided in the increase of electricity supply in Lafia, the state capital, and its environs.

Sule further asserted that President Buhari’s intervention made this possible.
