The former Commissioner of Information in Bauchi State under the immediate past administration of Issa Yuguda, Alhaji Salisu Barau has explained that the N91bn claimed to have been spent on security from 2007 to 2015 by the Yuguda’s administration is not too expensive.
He was reacting to the allegation made by the APC administration that the immediate past PDP administration squandered N91billion under security votes.
Alhaji Salisu Barau told newsmen that every state chief executive swore with the holy books to protect lives and properties of citizens, therefore spending such amount on security aspect is not too expensive, saying that shows their administration has given much priority to the security in the state.
“Whatever spent on security, is not too expensive, previously the present APC administration claimed that we spent N7bn few months before the end of our administration but now through a statement, they are saying N4bn, so I don’t understand the contradiction. Government advisers are not advising them correctly or they are just saying it to tarnish the image of the previous administration.”
He pointed out that PDP lost in Plateau, Kaduna states during the last general elections, but the governors have concentrated on development projects rather than making noise in the media.
The former commissioner explained that the former Governor Isa Yuguda had advised all his aides to contribute meaningfully towards the progress of the state and always to pray for peace and stability in the state.
