Niger State Governor, Mohammed Bago has come out to give reasons why he would not celebrate his 100 days in office.

He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, he does not want to go into window dressing projects in order to showcase his achievements, and he would rather display quality projects that will last, hence his focus and commitment to building the New Niger everyone craves.

He added that he would not indulge in pomp and pageantry to mark his first 100 days in office because more work needs to be done.

His words, “The task of developing and transforming Niger State into the “New Niger” as desired by the Mohammed Umaru Bago-led administration is a herculean task, it is, however possible and achievable.

Indeed, the last 100 days have seen Governor Bago working and moving tirelessly, making deliberate and frantic efforts to bring his policy thrusts and campaign promises to reality.

The Government of Umaru Bago kick-started by revealing some strategic areas that will serve as pillars and strength upon which his administration will stand.

These areas are security, education, science and technology, agriculture, commerce, tourism, civil service, health, infrastructure/urban renewal, local government and traditional institutions, revenue generation, women and youth development.

Realising that if he must build the “New Niger” he craves, then it has to be business unusual for him and all his lieutenants. They must be ready to sacrifice and come out of their comfort zones as the task of setting Niger State on the path of sustainable development is enormous but there is hope in the air, and early signs of steady progress are glaring.

Provision of a befitting edifice as a Divisional Police Headquarters in Chanchaga following the demolition of the old structure which was built on a water pipeline more than 30 years ago, thereby denying over 200 residents water supply.

Restoring the dignity of traditional institutions, whereby the governor visited all eight Emirates in the state to pay Sallah homage instead of the usual style of the traditional rulers coming to the government house in the state capital for a Sallah visit to the Governor.

Procurement and distribution of thousands of bags of fertilizer and other farm inputs for the 2023 wet season at a subsidized price.

Distribution of 20 operational vehicles to the Niger State Command of Nigeria Police, its sister agencies like the SSS, NSCDC, NDLEA and some other non-conventional security agencies to checkmate buying and selling of illicit drugs and curb other forms of crime in the state capital.
