Former Governor of Bayelsa State, Timipre Sylva, has commended Sokoto State Governor, Aliyu Wamakko, for the ‘tremendous’ infrastructural and manpower development the seat of the Caliphate has witnessed under the governor in the last seven years.
Sylva was speaking after inspecting various developmental projects embarked upon by the Sokoto State Government covering areas under health, education, agriculture, roads and others especially with the limited resources accruing to the state. The ex-governor ‘lauded Wamakko for transforming Sokoto to what it is today.’
Sylva had visited the 30 megawatts State Independent Power Project in Arkilla, the new Sokoto State University, the 20 million gallons per day Asare water project, the 500 unit Kalambaina Housing scheme, the NYSC permanent orientation camp and the 600 bed Murtala Muhammed Hospital started in 1991.
Silva was in Sokoto on a 3-day-visit to Sokoto to see things for himself based on the very positive information he had received.
Speaking while departing Sokoto Airport on Wednesday, Sylva advised the Federal Government and other governors to emulate Wamakko’s drive and commitment as well as his administration’s accommodation of all Nigerians by making Sokoto a true home for all and sundry.
