The APC-led administration of Governor Nasir Idris, Kauran Gwandu in Kebbi State has expended huge amount of money from May 29, 2023 to date to drastically reduce the myriad of suffering of its people as well as turn around the fortunes of the state better than he inherited.

The Commissioner for Information and Culture Alhaji Yakubu Ahmed Birnin Kebbi stated this at a press briefing on Saturday in Birnin Kebbi organised by the Ministry of Information and Culture, stressing that the Governor had roundly succeeded in transforming the state in various fronts of human endeavour.

“For instance, irked by the suffering of the people of the state due to the present socio-economic quagmire, the Governor had bought assorted grains worth over N12 billion and distributed free to the citizens. It is verifivable by all well-intentioned minds that the palliatives had gotten to all categories of people in the State”, he averred.

The Commissioner said that Kebbi State Government must be commended for the distribution of palliatives to all the categories of beneficiaries, irresepective of any political or religious affinities.

On food security, Yakubu explained that the tangible efforts and measures put in place by the people-oriented Kauran Gwandu led administration had gone a long way in bolstering food security and ensuring that the people of the state never went hungry.

“In the same vein, the administration had spent huge amount of money in the purchase of assorred farm inputs and implements and distributed same free to the farmers across the state besides the aerial spray of quelea birds,” the Commissioner said.

He called on the opposition and naysayers to stop the campaign of calumny against the Kauran Gwandu-led administration in order to allow the governor concentrate on the people’s oriented projects he has already started.

“The ongoing futile campaigns of calumny against the Kauran Gwandu-led administration will continue to hit the rock and amount to no effect because his doggedness, piety, patriotism, transparency and accounbility have remained unparalleled in the history of Kebbi State,” the Commissioner affirmed.
