Katsina State Governor-elect on the platform of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Dr. Dikko Umar Radda, has pledged to prioritise security, economy and education sectors.
A commitment to make every part of the state safe, to economic growth and quality education were an important aspect of the acceptance speech he read immediately after receiving a Certificate of Return on Sunday night in Government House Katsina as governor-elect in a keenly contested election.
Radda emphasized the need to secure the state and strategic policies that would not only align with current realities but implemented transparently and effectively, when he spoke to journalists and supporters yesterday.
He said this commitment is consistent with his government’s vision for a better future for everyone, adding that a better future is possible for all.
“I have toured every part of our dear state and seen first-hand the challenges our communities face. My goal as governor is to ensure that the government creates the right environment to overcome all challenges,” he noted.
Radda further pledged to rebuild the economy, educate Katsina children, help the vulnerable and provide high level of public service.
“The youth will be the backbone of our economic growth, and we will support you with all the resources available to the government to actualize your dreams,” he declared.
To the ruling party and out-going governor of the state, Aminu Bello Masari, he offered deep gratitude and promised to build on what Masari had achieved.
His words: “As winners of the 2023 gubernatorial election, we believe it is now time to give nothing less than our best as a government. As your governor, I will be humble in my dispensation, diligent in my execution and sincere in my actions.”
