RURAL AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT
Remarkably, in the area of rural and community development, across the state the administration has made several intervention programmes that directly touch the life of the common man in areas of road rehabilitation, reconstruction and culvert repairs as well as rural electrification and the purchase of transformers to various developments of various communities.
The administration through the ministry of rural and community development had procured electrical materials including electric cables, poles and other accessories for routing works at Waya Dam project.
Over eleven million naira was also paid for the electrification of Dokan Hardo community in Tafawa Balewa local government at the cost of over three million naira, while Hardawa, Gwaram and Akuyam electrification project at the cost of over seventeen million. Also, the ministry purchase and installed a 500 KVA transformer to Makama New extension in Bauchi metropolis at the cost of about four million naira while over 14 million naira was spent in the repairs of heavy-duty equipment the ministry uses in rural roads rehabilitation and construction.
Other projects executed by the administration through the ministry of rural and community development are the ongoing rehabilitation of electrical network of Misau-Ajili and Dinkwi Kasuwa axis, electrification work of Zigau Manga, Zigau Dangora, Ringin Tattau in Toro local government area, electrification of Sunkami, Lomin Fulani and Tabule in Kirfi local government area.
Contracts have also been awarded for the construction of Jama’are-Jurara road, repairs of culvert washed away by flood, Gungura in Ganjuwa local government area and those of Dindima, Maina’maji road repairs in Alkaleri local government area as well as the repairs of cell culverts in Dass local government area. The administration has also repaired Tafawa Balewa-Liman Katagum-Bununu road and Ningi-Kano road that were washed away by flood that cost the state millions of naira.
The Barrister turned Administrator, Mohammed Abdullahi Abubakar Esq, did achieve this feat in barely two years in office. What he will therefore, achieve in the next three years with this sustained momentum is better imagined than described.
