Buni: Another Year of Employment, Empowerment and Exemplary Initiatives

By: Abdulmumin Kolo Gulani

Governor Mai Mala Buni’s pace-setting of 2,670 youth employment into Yobe State Government which comprises of 15 people from each political ward across the state is something to be proud of in second term of his one year in office.

Apart from the aforementioned employees, there are several doctors, nurses, midwives and lab attendants recuited in Yobe State University Teaching Hospital. Again, there are 225 candidates that were appointed in Yobe State University as replacement, Umar Suleiman College of Education Gashua and other institutions, agencies that are numerous to mention.

On the issue of empowerment, His Excellency Hon. Mai Mala Buni has created a Ministry for Wealth Creation, Empowerment and Employment Opportunity, headed by Hon. Aji Yerima Bularafa. Through the Ministry, Gov. Buni has empowered thousands of youth in Yobe through various initiative that are numerous to mention.

Recently, through his Domestic Personal Assistant, Hassan Shettima, Governor Mai Mala Buni CON has empowered more than 200 people with bags of rice, mats, blankets and grinding machines.

Others are; generators, Computers, GSM repair equipments, weaving machines and cash as capitals for the beneficiaries.

In the same vein, Yobe Microfinance Bank PLC is always at the forefront in empowering youths in the state. The Managing Director of the Bank, Dr. Sheriff Almuhajir is always initiating programs that will aid the masses.

On his exemplary leadership initiative, Yobe state is quite different as the state government takes measures against hoarding, bulk purchase, and transportation of grains and other food items to curb hunger and starvation in the state.

Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe state has earlier presided over an emergency meeting on the issue of food security in the state where he expressed deep concern over the hoarding of grains and other essential commodities, creating artificial scarcity with more hardships to the people.

His spokesperson, Mamman Mohammed, said that government would roll out concrete measures to cushion the effects of the rising cost of foodstuff and other commodities.

It’s also on record that Yobe is among the best states that distributed a large quantity of food items to its people through the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA).

Yobe SEMA is always unique in terms of proper distribution to the deserving people, especially the needy. According to the Executive Secretary, Dr. Mohammed Goje, SEMA has distributed food items to over 165,000 beneficiaries across the state. This is a great testimony of a man with human feelings.

On the other hand through the State Coordinator of North East Development Commission (NEDC), Dr. Ali Ibrahim Abbas, the distribution of food items in Yobe State from the commission is second to none.

Indeed, there is the dire need for other governors to emulate Buni as we all know the best quality of a politician is honesty, God-fearing and empathy. A faithful and effective politician is trustworthy and reliable. He must capture the essence of truth, display sincerity, candour and practice what he preaches. He makes decisions and accepts responsibility for his actions and inactions.

The same is true in his dealing with his people. He makes promises and keeps those promises, somebody people can rely on. He should love people with all his heart, might, mind, soul and strive to help them as a true mark of a responsible leader. And, of course, Governor Buni possesses these qualities.

There’s no doubt the benefits of pity and its impact are numerous to mention In Islam but it’s noted that whoever adorns himself with it has adorned himself with a quality of the Messenger of Allah and those of that quality have been specially promised Allah’s mercy because they have shown others mercy and pity. And It is a great pillar upon which a strong, cohesive Muslim society should be built; with affection and pity for one another. It is a reason to gain Allah’s forgiveness, blessed and exalted, and the ennoblement of His pardon. Just as its opposite is a reason for His wrath and anger.

May Allah continue to guide our leaders on the right path.

Congratulations Hon. Mai Mala Buni CON on your one year in office as second term Governor of Yobe State.

ECOWAS Lightens Gambia Community with Solar Power

By: Michael Mike

A wave of excitement filled the air in Mamud Fana South, Gambia, as residents celebrated a new era of clean and reliable electricity with the commissioning of 77 Solar Home Systems (SHSs).

This life-changing project, implemented by UNIQUE ENERGY, was made possible with the financial support of the ECOWAS Commission through the ECOWAS Special Intervention Fund (ESIF), implemented by ECREEE.

For years, residents of Mamud Fana have struggled with limited access to electricity. This often meant evenings spent in darkness, limited opportunities for education and a struggle to power basic appliances. 

Now, the project lights up Mamud Fana South, bringing solar energy to over 1,000 residents. Each household has been equipped with a solar panel, battery storage, inverter, sockets, and lighting bulbs. This new energy source will allow them to power their homes, use appliances, and potentially develop small businesses.

The installations were commissioned on Saturday, June 15th, 2024, in the presence of Mr. Francis Sempore, ECREEE’s Executive Director, Mr. Emmanuel Correa, Representative of The Gambia’s Ministry of Petroleum and Energy and Mr. Njaga Ceesay, Business Development Manager at UNIQUE ENERGY.

The project demonstrates the positive impact that renewable energy solutions can have on rural communities across West Africa.
