The Bauchi state governor-elect, Barrister Mohammed Abdullahi Abubakar has promised not to probe the PDP administration in the state once he assumes the mantle of leadership on 29th May this year but instead he will intensify efforts to trace the huge resources alleged to have been frittered away.
He made the statement while speaking to newsmen in Bauchi immediately he was declared the winner of the gubernatorial election in the state. He said he would not waste his time in trying to probe the PDP led government in the state as they have done in 2007 that ended up without positive result.
He however said he would embark on effort that will enable the government to trace the huge public funds squandered; saying the 16 years of the PDP government was a punishment to people and abuse of trust in governance. He praised the courage and collective resolve of the electorate to weed out the PDP and ushered in what he believes as the people’s own leadership championed by the APC.
“Today you have not only voted but you peacefully protected your votes. Let me appreciate the compatriots that lost their lives in the efforts for the betterment of their tomorrow , those who kept vigil while the process came under threats of abuse through the dead night will be remembered in our history as the facilitators of change,” he stated.
Barrister Mohammed Abubakar noted that the rot in government is enormous but expressed confidence that with the collective resolve of the electorate, they will triumph.
He pointed out that he has good vision toward improving the internally generated revenue as presently only 5% is being generated but through tourism he promised to change the fortune of the state, assuring that he will set up a state rebranding project committee that will consist of retired civil servants, indigenes of the state working in private organizations and other professionals to work out future development for the state.
“They have engendered poverty on the people because of belief that it is the only way they can to rule for their ‘so-called 60 years’. When you are impoverished, you do not even think straight, when it comes to time for elections, N500 means a lot to a lot of people. Bauchi people were sensible enough as they collected the money but voted for better change,” he added.
He promised to address the issue of women and youth in a professional way in the state using technocrat to provide proper solution and dismissed the claim that he will fight back at those that serve as his stumbling block while campaigning for the number one seat in the state.
