Why it’s imperative to set up committees-Engr Sule

Nasarawa State Governor, Engineer Abdullahi Sule, has explained the reason behind the setting up of various committees since the inception of his administration, stressing that it’s vital to seek the views and experience of people, especially in a democracy.

Engineer Sule stated this while inaugurating two new committees, at the Government House, on Thursday.

While noting that building a formidable structure takes time and lots of perseverance, the Governor said, in a democracy such as being practised in the country, it’s important to listen to more experiences, more people.

According to Engineer Sule, his administration is not adversed to criticism for certain up a number of committees, saying such is normal in a democracy.

“It’s important that whenever something happen, people criticise so that you can make corrections there. We never take offense from criticism,” he said.

The Governor however noted that already, some of the committees put in place by his administration, are beginning to bear fruits, serving as shining example for even the Federal Government to emulate.

He recalled that, and in order to avoid Irrevocable Standing Payment Order (ISPO), where money is deducted at source by the Accountant General of the Federation, a committee was put in place that saw to the establishment of the Nasarawa State Investment Development Agency, with his administration presently in the process of establishing a company to handle all future transactions regarding infrastructural development.

Already, according to the Governor, the state investment law has assigned 5 precent of the state’s IGR to fund infrastructural development.

“For us to come up with this and for the Federal Government to immediately copy it, means we are definitely doing something right,” Engineer Sule stated.

It will be recalled that, only few days ago, President Muhammadu Buhari, approved the establishment of an infrastructure company that will focus on critical infrastructure in the country.

Just like what is about to take off in Nasarawa State, the new infrastructure company will raise funding from the CBN, Nigeria Sovereign Investment Authority (NSIA), among others.
