By this verification, we will be able to save money to cater for the welfare of the workers and the generality of the people in the state.

“It is not so a piece of good news, but it will be good at the end of the day. We have to do things for the generality of the state. We must carry out capital projects and do things that will expand the economy of the state. I want to solicit for your co-operation and involvement to carry out the exercise within the shortest time.”
