In addition, the governor also pledged to cut down on state expenditure by working with few commissioners.

“I will work with less than 10 commissioners in my cabinet to minimize cost of governance,” he added.

The governor claimed that although he met a neck breaking debt of almost N44billion and an empty treasury from James Bala Ngilari’s administration , he is still determined to work on his project.

He reiterated that construction of these roads will link the rural areas with the urban areas thereby creating an accessible network in the state for people in the rural area to feel the impact of his government.

He therefore enjoined the citizens of the state to support and cooperate fully with him adding that all the road projects will be completed at the end of the year.
