…Describes him as a uniting factor
The Niger State Executive Council has held a valedictory session in honour of Alh. Haliru Zakari Jikantoro, ex-Commissioner for Agriculture and now the All Progressives Congress (APC)’s state chairman.
This was disclosed by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor of Niger State, Mary Noel-Berje on Thursday.
The valedictory session took place during the weekly state executive council presided over by Governor Abubakar Sani Bello at the Government House Council Chamber.
Governor Sani Bello and some other members of the state executive council while describing the fearless calm and outstanding nature of Jikantoto, showered encomium on him.
The Governor expressed optimism that the State Party Chairman has the capacity to manage the Party as expected and appreciated him for the services he rendered under the present administration.
He enjoined him to do his best and use his wealth of experiences in strengthening the Party and uniting members by carrying everyone along in Party affairs while assuring him of his support.
The APC State Chairman promised to uphold the confidence reposed in him by the people in ensuring that all party members are carried along in the affairs of the Party.
“Trust has been bestowed on me and by the grace of God I will not betray that trust”, he said.
The Chairman who said he will do his best to correct the inadequacies and anomalies in the party, however, said that he will miss the weekly meetings and interactions with his former colleagues.
Recall that Alh. Haliru Jikantoro had served as Commissioner in the administration of Governor Abubakar Sani Bello since inception in 2015 in the Ministries of Works and Infrastructure, Local Government, Community Development and Chieftaincy Affairs, Lands and Housing as well as Agriculture.
He resigned from the cabinet to contest for the Chairmanship position of the APC which he presently occupies.
