The Speaker, House of Representative, Hon Yakubu Dogara has said that Adamawa State governor, Senator Muhammad Umar Jibrilla Bindow is redefining development in the State.
Dogara made the remark on Saturday night at the Tozali Magazine Henna Ball and People’s Award 2016 at the International Conference Centre, Abuja.
The Speaker, who was the chairman of the occassion, expressed satisfaction with achievement of Governor Bindow in office so far.
He further commended the governor for doing extremely well to the satisfaction of the majority of the people of the State in spite of the meagre resources accrued to the State.
“Governor Bindow and his deputy, Hon Martins Babale are two people who are very familiar with good governance having left the National Assembly as Senator and Rep member respectively to jointly contest the guber race in the State”.
” The infrastructural development and laudable projects in Adamawa State today is a clear testimony of Governor Bindow’s vision and innovation”.
Dogara assured that such an award and recognition by Tozali magazine will spur Governor Bindow to continue his progressive work in Adamawa State.
The Lawmaker then thanked the organisers of the event for giving him the opportunity to chair such an important event, “I am honoured to chair such an event that is a big symbol of hardwork and good entrepreneurship”.
” I am extremely happy to be here for two reasons. Firstly, this event showcases the positive work of a great entrepreneur in Maimuna Abubakar. Entrepreneurship is a neccessary tool for development of Nigeria especially with the current economic challenges”.
“Secondly, the proceeds from this gathering will be used to support the girl child education in the Northeast, where I come from and the Internally Displaced People in the region”.
He congratulated all the award recipients and charged them to continue the good work that has fetched them this important award and recognition.
Governor Bindow was given the governor of the year award 2016 and was represented by his deputy, Hon Martins Babale at the event.
