By: Yahaya Wakili

The Director of Personal Management of Potiskum local government area in Yobe state, Alhaji Adamu Dagona, has commended the Executive Governor of Yobe state, Hon. Mai Mala Buni CON, Chiroman Gujba, for fulfilling all his campaign promises to the people by providing the dividend of democracy.

Dagona said Yobe State is blessed with a governor characterized by humility, sympathy, accessibility, and a genius in letting go of what rightfully and lawfully belongs to him for peace to reign, adding that giving the commendation to the Chiroman Gujba has become imperative because of his numerous achievements in improving the living conditions of the masses in the state.

According to the Potiskum DPM, commendations as such are not only coming from members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state but also from the opposition, which has come to terms with the development strides of the Mai Mala Buni Administration in the last five years.

“Buni’s developmental projects are physically on the ground. Buni’s administration is full of initiatives. The government has constructed modern markets in the major towns across the state: Damaturu, Potiskum, Gashu’a, Nguru, Geidam, and Buni Yadi. The government also constructed a trailer park in Potiskum and resuscitated three dormant industries in the state. These are the Woven Sack Company in Damaturu, Yobe Sahel Aluminum and Flour, and Feed Mill Company in Potiskum.” Adamu Dagona said:.

Dagona pointed out that the Governor Mai Mala Buni administration has approved a contract for the production of a 25-year Damaturu master plan, and the team of experts engaged is ready to commence work. This would be extended to other major urban areas across the state, namely Potiskum, Nguru, Gashu’a, Geidam, and Buni Yadi.

Speaking further, Dagona said the Buni administration completed the state-owned International Cargo Airport, which was commissioned by the former President Muhammadu Buhari. He said all these achievements were to create a conducive environment for trade and commerce for the economic development of the state.

Alhaji Adamu Dagona maintained that the Mai Mala Buni CON Chiroman Gujba administration also established six modern and seven mega schools, procured books and laboratory equipment, employed more teachers, and re-trained teachers in order to enhance and improve the quality of education in the state. He also added that Governor Buni also sponsored many students studying specialized courses abroad.

“The Buni administration also constructed numerous township and inter-town roads to facilitate the movement of goods and services and also provided women and youth empowerment initiated for self-employment. In addition, it constructed over 1800 housing units across the state and discounted the units by 50 percent.

“This government is for youths; Buni fulfilled the promise he made to youths, because if you look at government appointments, he gives many appointments to youths; many offices were occupied by the youths; and if you also look at the appointments of SAs, about 65% of them are youths. All these he has done with a view to improving the lives of the youth in the state, and he has also provided women and youth empowerment initiatives for self-employment.” He said.

Adamu Dagona also said that the Buni administration provided opportunities to many young men and women to inject their energy and brains into service delivery. Governor Mai Mala Buni, having the youths at heart, made these achievements with a view to creating employment opportunities, generating wealth, ensuring sustainable economic development, and boosting economic activities for the state.

“Governor Mai Mala Buni CON has made tremendous achievements in the health sector. In under five years, he has constructed 138 primary healthcare centers in every electoral ward across the state and also upgraded over seven PHCs to standard general hospitals and four general hospitals to specialist hospitals to provide affordable and accessible healthcare services for the people of Yobe State.

He said that Governor Mai Mala Buni has transformed agriculture from subsistence farming to commercial-based agriculture through the provision of inputs and implements, and he has also provided enough fertilizers and tractors to farmers, women, and youth associations in order to fully engage in the farming system.

“There is no part of Yobe State without the appreciable positive impact of Buni’s administration on the lives of the people.
