We wish to announce to ALL MEN OF GOODWILL, PATRIOTIC CITIZENS OF NIGERIA and those WITNESSES TO HISTORY who mean well for Nasarawa State to KINDLY pause and join us in ” PROJECT 24 HOURS FOR AL-MAKURA!”.
Governor Umaru Tanko Al-makura celebrates his 66th Birthday tomorrow, 15th November 2018.
My dear friends and countrymen, we all know that history is not just what REALLY HAPPENED IN THE PAST or even WHAT IS HAPPENING NOW. In actual fact, “history is only a complex intersection of truths, bias and hopes. Often history is what we can remember, recover or even INVENT about the past!
Today in Nasarawa State, history is being WRITTEN AND CRAYONED by Umaru Tanko AL-MAKURA and according to a huge billboard put up by a trader opposite Lafia Modern market: “Umaru Tanko Al-makura is a leader who CAME, SAW and ACCOMPLISHED!” This is the way ordinary citizens see Governor Umaru Tanko Al-makura without the coloring of propaganda.
Tomorrow the 15th of November 2015, as Governor Almakura goes to spend his day playing with disabled children at the Lafia Comprehensive Special School, we invite friends and foe alike to search their conscience and say a FACTUAL STATEMENT about the place of Umaru Tanko Al-makura in the history of Nasarawa STATE
Born in Lafia in 1953″ Umaru Tanko Al-makura started his career as a school teacher after earning a Bachelor of Education degree from Advanced Teachers College Uyo and ABU Zaria. Perhaps because he was born after 8 girls, Tanko Al-makura grew up with a soft and kind heart. Some say his gentleness, Tanko picked from his sisters, while others say that perhaps since teaching has always been his first true love, Umaru Tanko Al-makura became by nature humble and the kind of Governor who is not pompous, nor will he revel in the pomp and finery of political office.
Today after over 7 years as Governor of Nasarawa State, our citizens continue to marvel at his simple but disciplined, focused and refreshingly humble leadership that is anchored on transparency, accountability , inclusivity and the fear of God.
Truth be told, Umaru Tanko Al-makura has demystified the autocratic idiosyncrasies of the office of Governor and as the 1st disciple of President Muhammadu Buhari, Al-makura arose from the CPC days and has remained undeterred in instituting leadership that is prudent and centered on providing succor to the voiceless and most vulnerable segment of our population.
“PROJECT 24 HOURS FOR AL-MAKURA” is an opportunity for you to remember and share with the world on Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp ETC, “ANYTHING, ANY IDEA, ANY PROJECT” which Governor Umaru Tanko Al-makura has done to improve the lives of ordinary people and catapulted Nasarawa State to the very frontiers of economic advancement.
Let’s share. Let’s remember. Let’s write our own history and celebrate a worthy leader UMARU TANKO AL-MAKURA who came in 2011 to Nasarawa State with bold and breakthrough thinking to unify the people of Nasarawa State and propel generations unborn into a modern and futuristic properity.
We invite you to join the innocent disabled children at Lafia Comprehensive Special School to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO GOVERNOR UMARU TANKO AL-MAKURA.
For November 15th let each of us, the forces of good be the ones to shape the dialogue on social media to applaud FACTUAL ACCOMPLISHMENTS of Governor Umaru Tanko Al-makura, so that we can collectively put to shame the purveyors of FICTITIOUS AND DIVISIVE PROPAGANDA who seek to drag Nasarawa State back into the abyss.
