Traditional leaders in Bauchi State have passed a vote of confidence in Governor Bala Mohammed’s administration in the state.
Alhaji (Dr) Umar Farouk ll, Emir of Katagum who spoke on behalf of the traditional institutions in the state during an iftar dinner organized for them by the Governor at the government house yesterday, said the governor’s achievements within his two years stewardship were the best of its kinds during the current democratic dispensation.
The Emir who assured of his members’ continues support to the present government said Governor Bala has fulfilled his electioneering campaign promises.
He said the governor has equitably distributed resources across the three geopolitical zones of the state irrespective of any primordial differences across party or sectional lines.
The emir said Governor Mohammed has defied the odds by equitable distributing developmental projects across the 20 local government areas of the state, adding that no Governor has in the history of Bauchi state, recorded such successes within a short period of time.
The Emir while commending the Governor for ensuring peace in the state appealed to him to beef up more security in the northern parts of the state, especially communities bordering Yobe state.
Dr Farouk also requested the governor to incentivize the traditional institutions with more funds and operational vehicles to enable them perform their duties by complementing the efforts of the administration.
