Lafia - An All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain in Nasarawa State, Mr. Ibrahim Azara, has called on President-elect Muhammadu Buhari and Gov. Tanko Al-Makura to reduce the cost of governance in the country.

Azara, who is a legal practitioner, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday in Lafia that the call was imperative in order to fight poverty, unemployment and other social vices.

He advised President elect Muhammadu Buhari to only appoint leaders of proven integrity in to his cabinet.

Azara said such appointments would promote accountability and transparency in the country.

“I want to advise the President elect, retired Maj.-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari and Al-Makura to reduce drastically the cost of governance and fight poverty and unemployment.

Azara called on both the incoming administration at the federal and state levels to give adequate priority to projects that have direct impacts on the lives of the people.

He called on the elected representatives to justify the confidence reposed on them by the electorate by initiating people- oriented projects.

The APC chieftain called on Nigerians to continue to pray for the success of the incoming administration.

He said that prayer was key to the success of every individual and government in the society.

Azara stressed the need for close relationship among the three arms of government, regardless of parties' affiliation.
