Speaking to Thisage at his resident in Lamigo Dam of Jos North Local Government Area of the state, Madaki, who said he would remain committed to the transformation agenda of the APC government, thanked the League of Veteran Journalists, the state council of the Nigerian Union of Journalists for helping him to tackle the poor reputation image of the Assembly image he met on resumption of office.
He said: “I see my position as a great intervention from God to use me and inject new policies and program that can improve the standard and better the administration of the relevant organ of government agencies” he explained.
He promised to partner with the media to promote cordial relationship hence the plan to open an official website to aid reporting official activities of the past and present legislature.
He emphasized that the website will impact positively to the larger society and the citizenry especially in a state where “recent conflict is threatening to disintegrating us.”
