“In addition, our administration has successfully dealt with kidnapping and banditry activities to a minimum level.
“The recent resurfacing of criminal ‘Shila boys’ activity in the state was traced to be supported by some miscreants who returned to the state as a result of COVID-19 lockdown,” Fintiri said.
He assured people of the state that the Shila Boys activity would soon become history as appropriate action was being taken to deal with the criminals.
On rural road projects, the governor said that the administration had embarked on the completion of some abandoned projects in seven local government areas.
“I went round all the 226 wards in the state during my campaign and what I observed is need for road networks.
“The sack of staff of the State Polytechnic, Yola, was done with good intention to restore the quality and standard of our education.
