Sokoto State PDP Gubernatorial candidate, Malam Sa’idu Umar Ubandoma on Monday said his administration will seize to rely on federal government monthly subvention to pay salary and execute projects if elected into office as the next governor of the state.

Ubandoma said his administration would come up with a robust policy engagement drive to sustain the positive development agenda of his predecessor, Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal if voted into office.

“If elected, my administration will invest heavily with a view to generate employment and enhance the state internally generated revenue that will be used in the execution of viable infrastructures of benefits to people in the state.

“Democracy is said to be a government of the people, for the people, and by the people,  hence engaging and carrying everybody along.”

According to him, a responsive mechanism to ensure proper engagement through consultations with the people of the state would be facilitated to attain the best development policy.

“I am purposefully discouraging over-reliance on federal allocation, hence invest in the PPP economic drive to brace up the state for rapid transformation.

The PDP Governorship spoke in an interaction session with journalists in Sokoto as he called on supporters and electorates to peacefully turn out en masse and cast their votes for him and other PDP candidates.

“My doors will be widely open to consultations as done by Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal over the years.

“We don’t want to be seen as a conservative state operating in isolation”, he said.

This, he said would enable the government to build a base for a prosperous economic horizon through promoting investments for sustainable revenue generation, and employment opportunities for youths for enhanced productivity.

Ubandoma who is the immediate past Secretary to the State Government said by opening the state economic horizon, will positively strengthen and induce a value chain in the investment space where more suppliers and distributors as well as off-takers would assist in the marketing process of goods and services within and outside the state.

He said the approach would also enable the state government to domesticate and divest opportunities for both local and outside investors to participate in actualizing the dream of the state becoming a nerve and hub for industrialization and commercial activities.

“I will ensure standards in the principles of transparency, accountability, and fairness in governance with even consideration for the people of the state while assuring with confidence that he will emerge victorious at the Governorship poll.”
