In the recent poverty survey carried out by the NBS, Sokoto state topped the list with 86.4 percent. Reacting to the survey, Wamakko said Sokoto was not the poorest in the country.

“We are not the poorest in the country as claimed by the NBS. Even though we are poor yet the claim that we are the poorest in the country is contestable,” he said.

He reiterated the commitment of his administration to enhance the standard of living of the people by embarking on projects that have direct bearing on the masses.

Wamakko, while calling on journalists in the country to always respect the ethics of journalism frowned at situation whereby journalists write their stories to the bidding of politicians.

“Nigeria has the freest press in the world but journalists are abusing this freedom. You should always conduct your activities in line with the ethics of journalism,” he said.
