•Chairman, House of Reps Committee on Appropriation, Hon Aliyu Muktar Betara



Hon Aliyu Muktar Betara, a ranking member of the House of Representatives and the chairman, House Committee on Appropriation. He represents Kwaya Kusar/Biu/Sani Bayo Federal Constituency in the 9th Assembly.

A member of the green chamber who has dedicated his years as a federal lawmaker to the services of humanity and humanitarian activities, Betara is committed to ensuring a better life not only for the privileged ones but also the rural dwellers.

His representation of the three major communities that formed the federal constituency is laced with equity, transparency and accountability, not only to his immediate community but the entire federal constituency.

Aliyu Betara is known to be alive to his responsibility in the areas of provision of job/employment opportunities, appointments, empowerment, charity, skills and capacity development to all the nooks and cranny of the federal constituency.

Betara’s appointment as chairman, House Committee on Appropriation with his wealth of experience as a seasoned lawmaker attracted a lot of infrastructural development to his constituency.

The recent attraction of a multi-million naira mini-stadium to Kwaya Kusar will re-awaken the comatose sports activities of all shades back to the federal constituency that will guarantee the deployment of extra-curricular activities and will maintain unity, peaceful co-existence as well as guarantee self-development along with self-sustenance in the various sporting activities.

The decision to attract a standard mini-stadium will also encourage youths from the area in engagement of various sports activities that will showcase the indigenes of those areas of Borno State into the global world, looking at sports as a veritable tool of both economic and political development as well as emancipation.

This will also attract local, interstate, inter-geopolitical competition and international engagements around his constituency in Borno State that will detach the age-long civil strife and revert the consciousness of the people to the prevailing modest activities.

With the new mini stadium and sports competition, both state and Federal Government will provide more attention in management, security and sustenance of the people of the area.

This is also in addition to his routine empowerment, skill acquisition and capacity building programmes to the people of his constituency that had placed them at a vantage position in all areas.

His economic empowerment and charitable programmes through distribution of various items that had placed the indigents, less-privileged and the vulnerable in the state into self-existence had contributed a lot to the economic and social emancipation of Biu federal constituency.

His resolve through provision of pipe-borne water with boreholes, transformers for electricity, rural roads to encourage farming and movement and farm products as well as movement of cattle and others has made life more meaningful to the people of the area.

In the last two years of the 9th Assembly, the federal lawmaker has improved on his performances over the previous years and determined to do more for the betterment of the people of his constituency and, by extension, the generality of Nigerians.

With determination, his desire and resolve to move the people of his constituency from the poverty-ridden, war-torn position to a befitting society is already in sight.
