Bauchi is one of the states to benefit from the United States of America reconstruction and rehabilitation programme in the North-East region of Nigeria following the seven-year insurgency that ravaged and crippled socio-economic activities in the region and environs.

Governor Mohammed Abdullahi Abubakar (GMA), who was on President Muhammadu Buhari’s entourage to last week’s World Nuclear Energy Conference in the USA, stated this on arrival in Abuja.

The Governor revealed that host President Barack Obama had during the meeting with President Buhari attended by their accompanying delegations, assured of his country’s support for the reconstruction and rehabilitation of all areas ravaged by the insurgency in Nigeria, including Bauchi State.

As neighbours with close historical, cultural and other social ties, “whatever affects Borno, Yobe and Adamawa naturally affects Bauchi State,” the Governor said.

There are over two million estimated internally displaced persons in Bauchi State as a result of the insurgency in the North-East and the crisis in Plateau State. 

The Governor said the planned reconstruction and rehabilitation programme covers infrastructure like schools, hospitals and roads as well as the economy. 

While acknowledging the pains that the change agenda of the present administration has brought to the people, GMA urged citizens of the state to cooperate with the government as the policies will soon begin to bear fruitful results.

He explained that the incidence of ghost workers in government payroll which is being used to deplete government treasury is not peculiar to Bauchi State, stressing that paucity of funds to execute meaningful projects necessitated the workers’ verification exercise.

Governor Abubakar solicited for continued support and prayers.

He assured that with the passage of the 2016 budget and his assent, the state will begin to see change in the distribution of social infrastructures and improved economic activities within available resources to the government.
