Governor Aminu Masari of Katsina says since the amalgamation of 1914, Nigeria “has never had a better government and President like Muhammad Buhari.”
The governor made this claim on Saturday in Katsina during a rally by beneficiaries of the federal government’s Social Investment Programme (NSIP) in the state.
The rally was organised under the Social Protection and Good Family Value Initiative, to call on the federal government and the national assembly to enact a law to make the programme permanent.
Governor Masari said Mr Buhari “with this initiative which no administration has ever thought of”, needs support and commendation.
“I wish to inform you that I am totally in support of this call for the president to make it a law before the end of his tenure. By doing such, it will continue to reduce the challenges Nigerians are facing.
“It is unfortunate for someone to wake up in the morning, thinking of what to eat, how to go to hospital or take their children to school, but this programme has reduced such difficulties for people.
“And if a law is enacted and it becomes permanent, no government will come and stop it, and Nigerians will continue to enjoy the programme and it will continue to reduce unemployment,” he said
