He expressed gratitude to the Executive Governor of Nasarawa State, Engr. Abdullahi Sule, and the good people of the State as well as the Club’s stakeholders for reposing confidence in him throughout his leadership.

Making his remarks after receiving the handing over note, the new Club Supremo, Dr. Othman, commended the outgone Chairman for the feats he achieved with the Club during his leadership.
He assured that he would study the document carefully and learn from the vast experience of the former Chairman to take the Club to where it should be.
