The Bauchi State governor, Muhammad Abdullahi Abubakar has alleged that the immediate past administration of Isa Yuguda in the state carted away about 100 different cars during its tenure, but the former governor has since refuted the allegation.
Governor Abubakar made the disclosure over the weekend while receiving the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon Yakubu Dogara at the Government House, Bauchi where he assured that he would do everything possible to bring back such items claimed to have been carted away, saying that the last administration collected over N837billion but alleged that the works done are not commensurate with such colossal sum.
He also revealed that during the just concluded 2015 election in the state he witnessed many challenges, saying that a Boko Haram unit was created to scuttle the election in the state “as a 24 hour curfew was imposed by the then government in a deliberate attempt to rig the election but the people of the state defy such curfew.” The governor reiterated the determination of his administration to bring the state out of the present doldrums and take it to the path of growth and development.
The Speaker of House of Representatives, Hon Dogara said that the House would convene a motion for an international donor agencies conference that will fast track development for the North-East region, saying that region will be restored to its lost glory. Dogara noted that his election as the Speaker of the House of Representative would not have been possible without the support of his colleagues whom he described as field Generals and the people of Bauchi State who according to him made sacrifices to ensure his victory.
He thanked the governor and the leadership of APC in the state for giving him the necessary support in his quest to become the speaker of the House, saying that their prayers and resilience made the difference. He stated that the APC came into power when things were difficult in the nation, adding that the problems were inherited and not created but called on Nigerians to support the present administration in their desire to develop the country.
The Speaker later visited the palace of the Emir of Bauchi, Alhaji Rilwanu Sulaiman Adamu where he said the House intended to provide constitutional role to traditional rulers in the country. He appealed to militants to lay down their arms and embrace peace.
Responding, the Emir congratulated the speaker on his election and appealed to all stakeholders to continue their effort towards freeing the Chibok girls who were abducted over a year ago.
