UYO—General Abdulsalami Abuba-kar(rtd.), former military Head of State, has enjoined Nige-rians to jealously guard the development projects provided by their leaders against vandalisation.
General Abubakar, accompanied by his wife, Hon. Justice Fati and other dignitaries, gave the advice when he paid a courtesy visit on Governor Godswill Akpabio Akwa Ibom in Uyo.
Abubakar was full of praises for Governor Akpa-bio’s development strides.
He said Akwa Ibom people should see the need to pay their taxes having seen where Akpabio’s administration has put their money in the last few years.
He said: “Without doubt, your enemies would accept that you have broad development projects. I wish Akwa Ibom people well and would expect them to play their part well.”
Akpabio had earlier welcomed them to the state and conducted them round the new Governor’s Lodge, flyovers at Itam junction, e-library at IBB Avenue, Ban-quet Hall and Tropicana Entertainment Centre all built and completed by his administration.
