As Yobe State turns 31, Governor Mai Mala Buni has promised more developmental projects to move the state forward.
This is even as he appreciated contributions by past leaders of the state.
These were parts of the message in a statement by his Director-General Press and Media Affairs, Mamman Mohammed on Saturday in Damaturu.
According to him, each of the past leaders made generous and notable contribution in making the state what it is while the people extended their support and cooperations.
“As leaders of the state at various times, you have made tremendous contributions to the state that makes us all proud”, he said.
He also commended the people of the state both at home and in the diaspora for their support and contributions to successive administrations.
“I specially commend you all for your resilience, support and cooperation in building our dear state.
“Your strong resilience has spurred this administration towards speedy building and recovery of the state after the decade-long Boko Haram insurgency."
Buni thanked Almighty Allah for the peace being enjoyed across the state, urging the people to continue praying for improved peace and security.
He said the support extended to his administration enabled government to rebuild schools, establish more health facilities, housing, road construction and completion of the cargo airport, among others.
The governor assured that his administration would continue to execute people-oriented projects and programmes to improve the lives of the people.
He prayed for more years with improved peace, security, prosperity and speedy development of the state.
