He commended President Muhammadu Buhari for the achievements recorded within the three months, particularly in the area of power and fuel supply in the country.

"Wherever you go now in Kano and other states, you just go into filling station and buy fuel at the government approved price of N87 per litre.

"This is a great achievement considering the fuel scarcity experienced by Nigerians in the recent past," Nagero said.

According to him, the improved power supply currently being enjoyed in the country will also go a long way in boosting socio-economic activities in the country.

He urged Nigerians to be patient with the new administration, saying he had the confidence in the ability of Buhari to transform the country.
