Ibrahim, who is also the Chairman of Birninkudu Local Government Council, said that there must be synergy between the two tiers of government for peace and progress of the state.

"As you know, the governor is the Chief Security Officer of the state while the chairman is the security officer of his local government; they will have to work with each other."

He said that all council chairmen were not unmindful of the party differences, but added that they are determined to work with any government for the development of the state.

The ALGON chairman recalled that Governor Muhammad Badaru summoned them immediately after he was sworn in and pledged to work in harmony with them.
