(Jibrin Baba Ndace) The National Chairman of Izalatu Bidia Waikamatul Sunnah, Sheikh Sani Yahaya Jingir on Monday gave kudos to Niger State Governor, Alhaji Abubakar Sani-Bello for not abandoning some people oriented projects and programmes inherited from past administrations in the state.

The clergyman said that aside from the completion of projects started by the past administrations, the impactful projects, programmes and policies of the adminisrratipn prompted the group to offer strong backing to it.
“We follow up on the activities of this government and I am convinced on its activities so far especially as it pertains to continuation of projects embarked upon by previous administrations. “
“We give strong backing to this administration as it has given priority to education, schools have been constructed and renovated by this administration and this has enf!orced the groups campaign for education and seeking for knowledge”.
The religious leader then called on parents who send their children away from home in the name of knowledge acquisition with no means of sustaining them out there to desist from such as it exposes the children to kidnapping, rape “and in most cases these children end up as a menace to8 the society when they are left without proper parenting”.
He also called on Nigerians to shun their differences and embrace togetherness and peaceful coexistence so that the country will move forward for the betterment of all.
