Chief Press Secretary, CPS, to Niger State Governor, Mr. Israel Ebije has described the government of Dr. Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu as purposeful, goal oriented with traceable developmental strides, and no amount of blackmail can diminish that fact.
Ebije who was reacting to debt claims by the All Progressives Congress, APC, maintained that Aliyu is leaving asset of dividends of democracy which he said include peaceful coexistence, security and doctrine of collective development aspiration among people of the state.
He chided Niger APC for its blanket debt claims which he said have no numerical figure or claims of irregularity. The statement further stressed that the party is only speculative on debt claims, adding that it is desperate to veil the landmark achievements of the Aliyu administration with hate propaganda and smear campaigns of calumny.
“Governor Aliyu has achieved a lot in virtually every conceivable aspect of his 2007 campaign promise. Graduates Employment Scheme, GES, Ward Development Programme, WDP, 10km road networks across the state, free education, prompt payment of workers’ salaries and so many tangible dividends of democracy have been achieved.”
“It is indeed pathetic that APC cannot understand that economic growth in Niger State since the past eight years outweighs how much the state may leave behind as debt. The governor met debts in 2007 and the plummeting economy from the centre has not made things easy, yet he has achieved so much regardless of the economic challenges.”
The spokesman to the governor therefore stated that the APC government should not start with rudderless excuses. He said they should be focused and imbibe administrative multi-tasking, like the exiting administration.
He accused the incoming APC government of feeling scared of sustaining numerous people-based policies of Aliyu led administration, like the free education, WDP, graduate employment scheme among others.
