Kaduna State Governor Mukhtar Yero on Thursday reiterated his commitment towards administering the state without any form of discrimination.
Yero made the declaration at the funeral of his former boss, Governor Patrick Yakowa, who died in Saturday’s helicopter crash in Bayelsa State, in Fadan Kagoma, Jema’a Local Government.
He said, “It is pertinent for me to declare in unequivocal terms that I will be governor for all and sundry irrespective of religion, ethnicity or geo-political consideration.
“Let me in particular, assure the Christian community in the state that my government will do everything to protect their rights and privileges as guaranteed by the constitution.”
Yero also assured the completion of projects initiated by his predecessor when he said, “I wish to reiterate my commitment to complete all projects initiated by my predecessor across the state.
“They were all conceived after very careful consideration and in order to keep alive his aspiration of improving the quality of lives of the citizenry.”
Yero said his office would remain open for constructive criticism and initiatives on strategies to move the state affairs forward.
He said despite the security challenges bedeviling the state, his predecessor were able to achieve so much in terms of projects.
He added, “While we mourn the painful loss, we should strive to keep alive his aspiration of uniting the people of the state into a formidable force of development.
“This is the only way we can remember him” he noted.
