“Inclusive education and infrastructural development is also one of our agenda, leaders are only trustees to the resources in every part the state, and the people in that area must enjoy the resources found in their land more than any one else, if we are giving the opportunity we will utilize the endowed resources to develop each and every local government with social amenities and infrastructural development”.
