Our people will also love to enjoy continuity. And I am sure Mr President, we are fulfilling today our dream of an industrial hub. I want to thank you for being part of today. Thank you, Mr President and God bless you all,”
President Buhari applauded the governor for his notable achievements and expressed his satisfaction on the newly commissioned industrial hub.
"I want to assure you of our continued support both at federal and state levels as we move forward to the next phase of this project’s life cycle.
