The beauty of democracy it’s the freedom it gives to people to choose a leader of their own, perhaps this explains why it is the most popular system of government practiced in the civilized countries all over the world today.
This, indeed is a self exemplary statement that could better be understood by those who are feeling the brunt in the same vein, with no exception to the undisputed defeat of the former Governor Muhammad Abdullahi Abubakar of Bauchi State…20th of January 2020 will forever remain a democracy day in the minds people of Bauchi.
At about 1700hrs, Justice Dattijo Muhammad put smiles in the faces of the citizens of Bauchi State by dismissing the appeal filed by the former Governor Muhammad Abdullahi Abubakar of All Progressive Congress APC.
The judge reaffirmed the absolute lack of merit of the appeal in totality. Subsequently, there was a rousing celebration in and outside the court room.
It was indeed a journey of 5 months of suspense, anxiety and tireless hard work of transformation.
Despite the court engagement, Sen Bala Muhammad CON shows his true commitment and dedication to making Bauchi a new destination of effective leadership and good governance.
In the last 7 months, the citizens have witnessed transparency in the government by identifying tremendous achievements in the areas of education, protection of lives and security of the people, road construction, portable drinking water e t c, and by making Bauchi home of economic destination in Northern Nigeria.
Today, Bauchi State stands an icon of example among contemporaries in terms of development, the ongoing project in the state is a justification of the people’s choice of progressive & prosperous leadership.
The need to consolidate more on good governance, the need to adopt an open door policy, the need to show empathy to our young men and women of proven integrity, the need to lunch a new development plan for the state should be the top priority of the people’s Governor.
Choosing the best lieutenants to work with is a good idea. The journey is not long to 2023, but performance is the key to sustainability. The planned infrastructural development of the state by providing affordable housing units is a key to the flow of direct investment, job opportunity, and to make Bauchi the new economic hub of Northern Nigeria.
Industrialization is a new phenomenon in the north, but looking at the vast minerals in the state there will be inflow of investors in the state and market capitalization will increase, jobs and security will be enhanced. In the end, avoid misguided elements who are not ready to support your transformation agenda and work with those who have the zeal and commitment to make Bauchi great. Wassalam Kauran Bauchi.
