Malam Usman Adamu, a welder at Sharada market in the city, said that he had been able to save a lot of money since the power supply improved.
According to him, “I used to spend about N5,000 on diesel to power my machines before now, so I hope the supply will be sustained.”
He attributed the development to the commitment of the present administration toward improving the lives of the citizens.
Some women in purdah also expressed happiness over the development saying they conducted their businesses from their respective houses.

Maryam, who lauded the Buhari administration for the wonderful development, expressed hope that other sectors would also witness such development.
