I’m ready for probe, I have nothing to hide – Governor Aliyu

Report gathered that Niger State Governor, Dr. Babangida Aliyu, on Monday said that he is ready for probe by the incoming administration in the state.

Aliyu said his records since 2007 to date are intact and are available for anybody, who is interested in going through them.

He spoke in Minna, the state capital, during the inauguration of the new legislative quarters at Three Arms Zone, Eastern bye-pass, Minna.

The governor said, “I have advised all my commissioners to keep all their flimsy notes and ensure that the records are handy. In case they are asked any question by the incoming administration, they should be ready to answer.

“For me, I have all my records and I am prepared to answer any question. I said even in my dream, if you ask me the right questions, I will give you the right answers. But if you ask me questions, thinking you want to disgrace me, you will end up disgracing yourself.

“We are ready for any question that maybe asked, either by the way we spent our money or by the way we did certain things.

“Yes, mistakes may have been made, but I have asked every ministry and every Commissioner and every parastatal to be prepared. There are ways to correct mistakes. If you leave mistake without telling us or chop without our knowledge, when they call you, don’t ask me, answer your question yourself.”

Earlier, the Commissioner for Lands and Housing, Dr. Peter Sarki, said the 37 units of the legislative quarters were constructed in phases at the cost of N1.74bn

He said the contracts for the road construction within the estate and other infrastructure were terminated due to poor performance of the contractors and advised the incoming administration to complete the project.
