Governor AbdulRazaq also enjoined the Speaker and the lawmakers in the state House of Assembly to contribute their own quota by appropriating resources to that effect.
He apologised for the incapabilities of the previous administrations and assured the technical team that his administration would not be lazy about development in the state.
