"In the last 4 years, you have waged renewed struggle to enhance worker’s welfare by promptly Paying salaries and pension, putting in place workable mechanisms to boost the state’s IGR, entrenching a sustainable culture of peace by establishing and funding the Plateau state Peace Building Agency, completing and initiating new projects that have direct bearing on the lives of Plateau people, re-consolidating on the tourism potentials of the state thereby attracting tourists and re-invigorating youth participation in democracy, business and politics by re-establishing the structure of the Plateau State Youth Council (PYC).

"These are a few among other development strides your administration has accomplished over the years.

"Your excellency, now that you have been re-elected to serve for another 4 years, much needs to be done to consolidate on the solid foundation you laid in the last dispensation.

"It’s time to settle down and re-write the history of the state by putting it on a higher pedestal and development trajectory.

"This ought to be done for the sake of posterity.

This is time for stronger leadership and vision, thus, what remains paramount is the foundation for a better plateau," the Abuja based energy expert said in a press statement.
