President Muhammadu Bihari promised the Bauchi State Government yesterday that his administration would pay heed to the state’s request for the completion of existing Federal Government projects that would improve the state’s people’s well-being.
When the state’s governor, Bala Mohammed, led a delegation to meet him at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, the President gave the promise.
The governor and members of the delegation were at the Presidential Villa on a thank-you visit in the aftermath of the presidential inauguration of the N23.5 billion World Bank-assisted Upgraded Bauchi Township Water Supply Scheme.
The project at the Gubi Water Treatment Plant in Bauchi was inaugurated on May 19, 2022, by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation Boss Mustapha, who represented the President, according to a statement by Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina.
Addressing the delegation led by the governor, President Buhari thanked him for assembling a high-powered delegation for the visit and promised to look into requests by the state government to complete ongoing Federal Government projects.
The President commended Bauchi State for providing illustrious sons and daughters who are making invaluable contributions to his government and national development, singling out the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, for special mention.
“He has been my close associate for a very long time and he is a son of Bauchi,” President Buhari told the delegation.
