It has been observed that Bauchi state is critically ill in term of development, insecurity, corruption and unemployment (ICU), showing a serious concern that there is absence of government in almost all aspect.
This revelation was made at the weekend by a group of technocrats and professionals known as Bauchi State Rapid Development Strategy while presenting a report to the governor-elect, Barrister Muhammad Abubakar at Destination Hotel, Bauchi.
The chairman of the group, Barrister Almustafa Ahmed said the members of the group were drawn from within and outside the country aimed at contributing towards salvaging the state from the low level of development witnessed in the state and the need to provide private sector activities in the state.
Also explaining the details of the report, a member of the group Bala Wunti stated that the future of Bauchi state is bleak if the three issues were not addressed such as insecurity, corruption and unemployment, saying that 73% of people of Bauchi state are living in poverty with less than N250 per person daily.
He noted with concern how the present administration operates with 7% internally generated revenue, relying heavily on 93% coming from outside the state, while less than 1% passed the last WAEC examination in the state which according to him is very alarming.
Receiving the report, governor-elect, Barrister Muhammad Abubakar commended the group for their foresight and promised to submit such report to the Transition, Technical and Rebranding committees aimed at having a single report.
He disclosed his intention to employ graduates to teach in various schools across the state after attaining the necessary training in Zaria, so as to improve the standard of education in the state.
