In a post on his Facebook page on Friday he said ” The former NITEL Training School, Bauchi is now a site of Government Day Technical College, Bauchi. Over the years, the entire site got completely vandalized of its fittings and many of its roofs.
When I visited it two weeks ago, I was able to cut a deal with the principal and his teachers. You supply the technical expertise and labour, I provide my personal cash, I offered them.
If you repair the worst damaged block well, to the appreciation if the Governor, I can get my money back and give you more to repair additional blocks. Are you in? They said, “Yes”. They submitted me a bill if N2.8m. I paid a N1m advance into the school’s account 10 days ago” .
