A political pressure group known as ‘Bauchi Good Governance Advocates Forum’ (BGGAF) has appealed to the electorate in the state to re-elect the incumbent Governor, Mohammed Abdullahi Abubakar because according to it, he is more qualified than all his other contenders in the gubernatorial race.
The Group while speaking with newsmen on Wednesday in Bauchi through its Chairman, Comrade Aliyu Sani stated that it is very paramount for the forum to remind voters in the state to think wisely before giving casting their votes in the gubernatorial elections rescheduled for March 9, 2019.
The Group opined that “Governor M. A Abubakar is someone who has good track records, was tested and trusted not the one that makes empty promises. During the period Governor Mohammed Abubakar has been in office, he has proven to be an astute, resilient, focused, determined and prudent administrator who effected some positive changes in governance in the state”.
Aliyu Sani further pointed out that despite paucity of funds, the present APC led administration in the state has recorded tremendous successes within the period under review which included the dualization of the Gidan Mai to Awalah, Awalah to Giwo Academy roads, Wuntin Dada to Miri roads in order to alleviate the suffering of the people of the areas particularly the series of accidents in the areas as well as to beautify the Bauchi City.
Other ongoing roads according to the group are the Federal Low-cost roads, Azare metropolitan road as well as the 115 kilometres Misau to Udubo road.
The group further stated that aside from that, Mohammed Abubakar led administration was able to build 19 new Primary Health centres, resuscitated the moribund Bauchi Fertilizer blending plant, procurement of 500 tractors for farmers to boost agriculture in the State.
“Remember these were achieved despite economic recession faced by the nation and the empty treasury he inherited from the past administration. Having considered how the Governor was able to manage the erstwhile bankrupt state and executed important people-oriented projects that have impacted positively on the lives of the citizens, it will be disastrous not to retain him for another term so that the state will not go back to square one”, the group argued.
