AS President Muhammadu Buhari visits Bauchi State this Thursday of a working visit, the state chapter of the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has declared that there is no any developmental project to be showcased not to talk of commissioning by the President.
The PDP though said that it was happy that the President is coming to the state on Thursday but “he has nothing to commission in the state” alleging that the projects earmarked for commissioning were not worth the President’s visit.
While speaking with newsmen Wednesday on the visit, the State Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Alhaji Yayanuwa Zainabari lamented that the Governor Mohammed Abdullahi Abubakar led administration in Bauchi State has failed to complete any tangible projects within the last three years “only for him to invite Mr Buhari to come all the way from the Nation’s capital for distribution of tractors.”
According to Yayanuwa Zainabari, the state government had ahead of Muhammadu Buhari’s visit decorated roundabouts and painted the metropolitan roads “as if it was a Sallah celebration.”
“It’s embarrassing that for three years this government had done nothing in the state but procured tractors for distribution to farmers. Why didn’t it purchase the tractors since but after three years? It is local government councils that are supposed to purchase tractors for farmers, not the governor,” he opined.
The party, however, welcome the President to the state and wished him a safe journey and a peaceful stay in the state during the official visit.
