His administration Sule says will ensure training and retraining of workers, prompt payment of salaries and allowances as well as improvement in the working and living condition of staff.
Road construction and development would also be accorded priority as network of roads are catalyst to rapid socio economic development of rural communities.
He added that other sectors that would receive government attention if elected included, water supply, agriculture, health care delivery as well as education.

He called on the youths and the entire people of the local government to come out en mass and vote for all the PDP candidates, describing the party as credible with a human face.
