The Niger State APC gubernatorial candidate, Hon. Mohammed Umaru Bago has declared that he would create a ministry of Intertribal that would be headed by one of the members.

Bago made the declaration today, at the commissioning of a Tinubu/Shettima and Bago/Yakubu campaign office donated to the APC presidential and gubernatorial candidates by the Niger State Chapter of North East Development Association (NEDA), in Minna, the State capital.

He stressed the need for total integration of Nigerians wherever they found themselves, as he appreciated the kind gesture done to both his Party’s presidential candidate, Sen. Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu, and himself, assuring Nigerians and Nigerlites of good governance when elected, as president and governor, respectively.

Earlier, the state chairman of the Association, Prof. Ayuba Balami, explained that after making wide consultation they realized that there was a bridge builder among the contestants, in the person of Hon. Mohammed Umaru Bago who had demonstrated fraternity with their people, as he was always in their zone.

The Professor gave a summary of the Association to include a zonal coordinator in each of the three senatorial zones, a coordinator in each of the 25 Local Government Councils, and coordinators for each of the 274 wards of the state, adding that, there were no less than 6,994 members of the Association besides their families who were ready to vote for APC from top to bottom.
