Former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, has commended Governor Shehu Shema of Katsina State for providing the needed infrastructural facilities in the state.
Obasanjo, who was a guest of the governor as part of activities marking this year's Comptroller-General of Customs Annual Conference, praised Shema over his landmark achievements, saying he had impacted positively on the people of the state.
This was even as Governor Shema received an award from the Department of Public Administration of Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, for the contributions he made towards the development of the institution.
According to a government house statement in Katsina, Obasanjo spoke after inspecting some developmental projects in the state capital.
Some of the projects are the new Government House, under construction at Modoji, three-lane ring road project, 250-bed orthopaedic hospital and the ultra-modern Olympic size stadium, nearing completion.
Others are the Barhin Housing Estate and some structures at the Umaru Musa Yar'Adua University, and the main auditorium of the institution, which served as venue for the Customs Conference.
Obasanjo noted that Shema had executed his numerous projects without borrowing money, whether locally or internationally, pointing out that it was a clear demonstration of a sincere and honest administration.
