“As difficult and expensive as things are, we have raised money to deprive some sectors so as to provide vehicles to allow a very functional government and I expect you to manage and maintain these vehicles very well. Government will not hesitate to deal with anyone found abusing any of the vehicles,” the Governor warned.

The National President and Chairman of Association of Local Government Chairmen of Nigeria (ALGON), Alhaji Gambo Tanko, who received the vehicles on behalf of the benefiting local government chairmen, commended the government for providing the vehicles to enable them carry out their responsibilities.
