According to the Governor, the future is so bright for the communities living where the dams and irrigation projects are sited. 

“In Jigawa state we can not thank the Baba Buhari enough for carrying out numerous developmental projects in the state.

The social investment programs in the state have gone a long way in reducing hardship among the people in the state,” the Governor said.
