The Emir of Bauchi, Alhaji Rilwanu Adamu, has called on the state government to provide fertilisers for farmers for the 2015 cropping season.

Adamu made the call in Bauchi when he paid Sallah homage to Governor Mohammed Abubakar.

He further called on the state government to provide tractors and pursue the construction of Kafin Zaki Dam and other similar dams to boost irrigated agriculture in the state.

Adamu also urged the governor to solve the persistence water problem within Bauchi metropolis and tackle the dilapidated roads to ease transportation problem being faced by the people.

He thanked the Almighty Allah for the successful completion of the Ramadan fast, and commended the state government and Islamic scholars over the peaceful atmosphere that prevailed during the period.

Responding Abubakar promised to adopt a holistic approach toward rehabilitating the dilapidated roads in the state to reduce hardship of the people.

He said that his administration would rehabilitate some roads in Bauchi metropolis in spite of the lean financial position of the state government.

The governor apart from the rehabilitation, the state government would ensure that some roads were constructed to provide access to various communities to boost the economic position of the people.

``Despite the inheritance of empty treasury we are doing everything possible to address the challenges.

``We are just less than two months but we inherited four months salaries arrears, we source funds and reduced the salary arrears as we have sympathy to our workers.

``I want to correct the impression that the Federal Government has given us money to pay the remaining arrears because as at today, we have not received any amount to settle the salary arrears,” Abubakar said. (NAN)
