Niger State Governor, Alhaji Abubakar Sani Bello has expressed his administration’s readiness to partner with agencies and organisations within and outside the country for the actualisation of its developmental agenda for the State.
He stated this at the weekend when he played host to representatives of Sheikh Saifudeen Family from the Royal Kingdom of Saudi Arabia at Government House, Minna, led by Khaleed Abdullateef Saifudeen and Naif Saifudeen .
The family which serves as landlord to state pilgrims in the Holy Land of Mecca is currently drilling 60 boreholes in various rural communities across the state.
Gov. Sani bello pointed out that the donation of the boreholes by the family was in tandem with his administration’s infrastructural developmental agenda and its readiness to collaborate with local and international organisations for it’s developmental drive. He noted that the gesture by the Saifudeen Family could not have come at a better time than now, when people, especially those at the rural areas are faced with dearth of hygienic portable and drinking water.
He said the donation of the boreholes will go a long way in complementing his administration’s efforts at meeting the deficiency in the area of water infrastructure. The state governor also appreciated the role played by the Saifudeen family in resolving a court case between the state and her former landlord in Saudi Arabia noting that but for the intervention of the family, the suit would have cost the state government huge amount of money to resolve.
The governor also recalled how the family’s efforts enabled the state government to recover the ownership of some of its utility vehicles impounded in Saudi Arabia.
“By the commitment of Saifudeen family, it has shown that they are indeed friends of Niger state and I  assure you that we will continue to maintain the existing cordial relationship with the Saifudeen family, our able landlord in Saudi Arabia,” the governor noted.
Earlier, the Acting chairman of the state  Pilgrims Welfare Board, Alhaji Idris Abubakar Azozo who led the family on the visit, highlighted the support the board has enjoyed from the Saufudeen family both in Nigeria and in Saudi Arabia.
He disclosed that family had assisted in establishing an Islamic school in Gawu some years back and has pledged to provide twenty additional classrooms to the school.
