Aminu Tambuwal, governor of Sokoto, says the recession in the country has hindered his administration’s zeal to do more for the people of the state.

Speaking at stakeholders’ meeting of All Progressives Congress (APC) Party in the state on Sunday, Tambuwal said the “unfortunate situation” has slowed his administration down.

He said in spite of the difficult economic situation, the government is still able to pay salaries and complete some of the inherited projects.

The governor said that his administration would not abandon any project in the state.

“We came with the zeal to work, but the unfortunate situation we found ourselves, has slowed us down. Yet, we have been promptly paying salaries and other workers’ entitlements, as well as pensions and gratuities,” Tambuwal said.

“We have also completed most of the inherited projects; some are ongoing, while we have initiated additional projects.

“The present administration will not abandon any projects, which would be evenly spread across the state.”

He called for more prayers for President Muhammadu Buhari to get better and come back to the country to continue with the good work he had started.

Aliyu Wamakko, senator representing Sokoto north, stressed the need for the sustained unity of the party, as well as that of Nigeria.

Inuwa Abdulkadir, national vice-chairman of the APC north-west and Salihu Maidaji, speaker of the state house of assembly were amongst those present at the meeting.
