Niger gov hopeful pledges zero tolerance for graft
NIGER State APC Gubernatorial Candidate, Alhaji Abubakar Bello, says he will have zero tolerance for corruption in the state, if elected governor on February 28.
Bello made the pledge on Sunday while addressing newsmen in Minna
” I will have zero tolerance for corruption, and one way I will address corruption is to lead by setting a good example for others,” he said
He also said that he would not probe past administrations, to save vital time needed to deliver dividends of governance to the people.
“Probe is not a priority for me, because it will take up the time I would have used to work for the good people of the state.”
Bello also promised to run an all inclusive government if elected, adding that women will play key role in his administration.
On the forthcoming elections, he expressed optimism that the people of Niger state would vote massively for him and the APC “to bring about desired change and development.”
Bello noted that the state has “grossly untapped natural resources” that needed to be utilised to enhance the state’s economy.
He urged the media to be part of the vanguard for change through effective and unbiased reportage of happenings in the state. (NAN)
