According to him, “this celebration is better late than never. I must express my appreciation to you all for your support, I must thank the Gwape cultural troupe for the entertainment, the cabinet secretariat for the hard work, my security personnel for protecting me, the chief of staff, my cook, my drivers, the press, and protocol. I appreciate you all and God bless.”
The Chief Organizer of the celebration who is also the Commissioner for Tourism and Culture, Mrs. Rifkatu Adamu Chidawa, said the Governor was worth celebrating, citing the sterling leadership he is providing not only in the council, but also in the entire state.
The Commissioner also described him as a leader with a listening ear and hardworking.
