A committee set up by the Bauchi State Government, headed by Air Commodore Ahmed Tijjani-Baba (rtd), has discovered an aircraft belonging to the state, hidden in Morocco.
Governor Mohammed Abubakar made this known, Saturday night in Bauchi, in a broadcast marking his 100 days in office.
He disclosed that the recovered aircraft would be received by the state government in few days at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa International Airport, Bauchi.
According to him, “The committee will now beam its satellite on the Ministry for Local Government Affairs and the State Basic Education Board, to see how billions of naira allocated to them was spent.
“Such examples are the N2billion micro loans and others that were allocated to them but carelessly spent, leaving our pupils to study under the trees.”
Abubakar assured that the state government would soon embark on the construction and reconstruction of some rural feeder roads to ease transportation problems.
He said that the government had refurbished five trucks belonging to the State Fire Service as part of safety measures.
Abubakar said that 420 youths had been engaged as street cleaners by the government under its youth employment scheme to curb youth restiveness.
He said that water supply, especially within Bauchi metropolis, had improved, following special interventions such as regular payment of electricity bills and upgrade of electricity gadgets at Gubi Dam.
The Governor called on the people of the state to support his administration to enable it serve them effectively.
