Ministry for Local Govt Affairs
The Ministry is concerned with matters affecting local government and local government administration as well as issues relating to Local Government matters in Bauchi State.
In a determined effort to turn things around, the State Government embarked on new policies, various programmes and activities at making Bauchi State comparable to other modern cities of its kind. Since Local Governments are the closest to the people, effective performance of their assigned duties and responsibilities will definitely have a spillover effect on the economy of the State, and indeed, Nigeria.
It is noteworthy that the State has witnessed positive and radical changes in its Local Government Affairs through underlining reforms aimed at creating an accountable and more productive third-tier of government that will reduce wastages and improve service delivery at the grassroots. These programmes have been pursued with vigour and sincerity of purpose.
