Deputy Governor of Kaduna State, Mr Barnabas Bantex, has urged politicians to render selfless service to ensure accelerated development.
Bantex made the call at a thanksgiving service to mark his 60th birthday at his hometown Manchok, Kaura Local Government Area of Kaduna on Sunday.
Bantex said politicians should desist from the mindset of wealth acquisition and channel efforts towards services that would impact positively on the people.
“Posterity will always reward selfless service geared toward human development”, he said.
He said the State Government will not relent in its efforts toward encouraging child education as it was cardinal to national development.
“When our children are educated, hooliganism and insurgence would be curtailed”, he said.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), reports that the occasion was attended by top government officials, family members, friends and industry chieftains.
