Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa has claimed that he is the only Muslim governor in Nigeria who went to Church to thank God after his victory in the last governorship election in 2019.
Governor Sule said he did this because he had his early secondary education at a Christian church, precisely a Roman Catholic setting, The Sun reports.
Sule made this revelation during his commissioning and dedication of Evangelical Reformed Church of Christ (ERCC) ultra-modern headquarters secretariat located in the Akwanga local government area of the state.
He, therefore, called on everyone in the state to cooperate with his administration to move Nasarawa forward.
Represented by his special adviser on youths and sports, Kwanta Yakubu, the governor said:
"The government of the state recognises the contributions of the ERCC to the development of education, health, women and youth empowerment as well as leadership development programmes for the youth through the boys' brigade and girls brigade programmes.
"...the state government will continue to partner with all faith-based organisations as veritable tools in the shaping of society for responsible citizenship and national patriotism for the promotion of peaceful co-existence in Nasarawa state."
Meanwhile, Sule had said he was not bothered about being re-elected in 2023. Governor Sule said he was grateful to God for giving him a four-year mandate; saying it is long enough for him to contribute his quota to the development of the state.
The Nasarawa state governor was responding to a question by newsmen on the speculation that the people might not be ready to re-elect him in 2023.
