As President Buhari Visit Yobe To Commission 4 Multibillion Naira Projects
……..Gov. Buni Has Executed 375 Projects Across Yobe
By Sani Gazas Chinade, Damaturu
As President Muhammadu Buhari set to visit Yobe state, today 10th January, 2023, on one-day working visit to commission projects, that will put Governor Mai Mala Buni and his regime in the spotlight.
In a press statement signed by Yusuf Ali the SSA Digital and Strategic Communications to Governor Mai Mala Buni said that, the scorecard looked very impressive, at least, to all dispassionate observers, including Mr. President himself, who will have the privilege of cutting the tapes to inaugurate four Multibillion Naira world class projects, the Damaturu International Cargo Airport, Market, Schools, 2350 Housing and the Nigeria’s largest Maternal and Child Healthcare Complex projects. The visit is also symbolic and historic for the good people of Yobe state to host Mr President.
Massive as these projects are, it’s important to note they’re not the only ones executed by Governor Buni’s administration in every part of the state. Many had been done and dusted before now, which the people at the grassroots are intimately aware and are already impactfully benefiting from them, and a lot more are ongoing as we speak, including the construction of very strategic Modern Trailer and Mechanic Village, Modern Markets in major towns, the Yobe State University College of Medical Science and 153 Primary Healthcare Centre PHC in every electoral Wards across the state.
It’s also remarkable to note, that the Buni administration has upgraded over seven PHC to standard General Hospital to provide affordable and accessible Healthcare services for the people of Yobe state.
As Governor Buni has said in a different fora, there is no part of Yobe without appreciable positive impact of his administration to better the lives of the people. It was a challenge as Gov. Buni keeps throwing up the question to the people at every gathering “let me know if there is any part of Yobe that has not benefited from any of our projects”, the governor queries. But there was none. Absolutely none.
The governor has said that his investments in healthcare, education, rural-urban development, water facilities, women and youth empowerment were so significant that emerging data had shown that the administration has impacted positively on the lives of the people.
He said the administration has achieved a lot despite setbacks by the Covid-19 pandemic and the global recession witnessed, adding that the government is working even with the meagre resouces at disposal providing infrastructural development and carrying out social services in the state.
Gov. Buni listed many of the administration’s completed projects in road, water, health, and education across the state, adding: “Beyond these, we have many ongoing projects that have been designed towards boosting the economic base of the state.
“Whether in water, rural development, basic education or healthcare, or peoples’ welfare, we have clearly delivered on our mandate and we continue to do more Insha Allah,” he added.
Another areas the governor has done remarkably well is road construction. Buni’s giant construction on roads and drainages is carefully planned statewide phenomenon. He has constructed over 40 roads across the state to link up communities and uplift the living standards of the people. In the state capital, Damaturu, many roads were either newly constructed or massively redeveloped to ease traffic flow and make city life more livable. Many of these and other projects had been commissioned in the state before now.
Again, these are far from being the only infrastructural footprints of the workaholic Governor Mai Mala Buni. The Governor has executed several uncountable water and electricity projects across the state that contributed in making life a lot more easier for people at the grassroots.
Like him or loathe him, the fact remains that Buni has proved to be a progressive governor, easily one of the most outstanding governor in Nigeria today. Many would readily recall with President Buhari who, in 2019 endorsed Hon. Mai Mala Buni based on his antecedents as successful National Secretary of the APC. Today, the President is vindicated. The good people of Yobe are the living witness.
Buni “has done a great job”, and that “Nigerians are appreciative that he is writing his history in letters of gold”. Detractors may argue to the contrary, but any such argument would likely stem from sheer envy, opposition politics, or biased emotion lacking facts or proof.
Gov. Buni’s stellar performance transcends brick and mortar structures. Since he assumed office as the state’s chief executive officer, his administration has taken bold steps to leave indelible footprints in many aspect of the yobe landscape.
