Gov. Mukhtar Yero of Kaduna State on Tuesday reacted to concerns over the slow pace of the administration, saying it was to ensure meaningful development.
“I prefer to go slow and steady instead of rushing and crashing”, Yero said in Kaduna while responding to a question by one Sulaiman Rigachukun during the town hall meeting organised as part of the ongoing Good Governance Tour of the state.
The governor said as a leader, he needed time to “study the situation of things, know the needs of the people and assess available resources before embarking on any project”.
“It is always important to be slow and steady in making progress instead of rushing and at the end of the day crashing.
“So I prefer to be slow, steady, observe and also get meaningful contributions,” he said.
He assured the people that the administration would not disappoint, as it was committed to ensuring meaningful development in all parts of the state.
“I would like to assure you that we are studying the situation, and Kaduna state is not a state that you will rush, there are so many challenges that we need to look at critically, understand and move forward.
“The most important is how to add value and that is the changes we are looking at; to add value.”
Yero reassured the people that every appointment into the government would be based strictly on merit.
