He made this known in Gusau on Thursday after defending the 2020 budget proposals of his office at the House of Assembly.

He said the state government resolved to construct a new government house “considering the need for it by the state."

He said;

You know our current Government House was the Gusau Local Government Secretariat during the old Sokoto State.

It was used as a temporary Government House when the state was created in 1996.

We need a modern Government House to fit into the league of modern states in the country.

We also considered getting a new government house to take care of the shortage of government offices.

When the project is completed, the current government house will be converted to a Secretariat.

Meanwhile, the state government has also earmarked N700 million in the 2020 budget for procurement of relief materials for Internally Displaced Persons and assistance to disaster victims in the state.
