"I Will Improve Jigawa Economy In 35years & I Will Not Favour Any Community Over The Other"- Mustapha Sule Lamido

The PDP gubernatorial candidate in Jigawa state Mustapha Sule Lamido has said that he has the goal of improving the economy of Jigawa state in the next 35 years if he is elected as governor.

According to him, in the last four years, he had been working with other stakeholders within and outside the PDP to produce a 35-year development plan for Jigawa State similar to what was done in Lagos.

Lamido in an exclusive interview with the Hausa Service of the British Broadcasting Corporation, BBC Tuesday, morning, said with the help of experts and critical stakeholders in the Jigawa project, he would fashion out the comprehensive economic transformation trajectory to be followed from 2023 to 2059 if he becomes the governor.

"We want to put Jigawa on the path of improvement in 35 years so that it stands on its feet in the economic field" ,he said

In addition to this, he told the BBC that the issue of creating jobs for young people is something that is on his mind.

He also said that he will try to ensure that the youth get a job by developing industries and establishing others in the state.

“Jigawa is our state and we are proud of it, we looked at its major problems and we are here to serve our people, if elected I will engage all stakeholders from all sectors, religious leaders and traditional rulers to ensure we find lasting solutions to our dear state”, he said.

Mr Lamido pointed out that If given the chance, his administration would ensure justice and fairness through equitable distribution of government presence, promising that “I will not favour any community over the other, neither will I allow individuals to be favoured over other individuals.”
