By Onuminya Ochowechi, Sokoto.
The acting Governor of Sokoto State Alhaji Muhammad Manir Dan’iya said he was full of joy to hear that Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal tested negative to COVID19 .
“It was mixed feelings that I received the sobering news of the self-isolation of our amiable Boss on Friday, Dec. 18, 2020. In addition to the solemness that the news brought it also threw up a weighty temporary challenge- that of having to step into the big shoes of the Governor”.
“In the past few days I felt the heaviness of the responsibility suddenly thrusted upon my shoulder. But, with gratitude to Allah, and; with the support and encouragement of Governor Tambuwal, I spent the past couple of hours going through the calls of duty with little qualms”.
He said despite the fact that the Governor was in self-isolation he enjoyed his tremendous support and encouragement in discharging his duties and running the State seamlessly.
“Alhamdulillahi for his good health and submission to the will of the Almighty, who in return didn’t forsake him. Instead, he was granted the best of relief”.
The acting Governor use the opportunity to express his gratitude to the government and good people of Sokoto State, who rallied behind him and the Governor with prayers and well-intentioned thoughts.
“Of note are the wide scope of stakeholders- the Governor’s entire family, traditional rulers, the Ulama, the Clergy and Politicians of different convictions”.
“Without the support, prayers and encouragement you ceaselessly undertook, there would have been a hiatus and vacuum in the running of the State’s affairs”.
May Allah continue to bless you all and give our Governor long live and good health to lead well now and into the future.
