Learn good governance from PDP states, Atiku tells FG
Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has charged the Federal Government to learn development and good governance from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)-controlled states.
He said this in Bauchi, yesterday when he unveiled the 4.2-kilometre Ibrahim Bako–Maiduguri road that was completed in May 2020, adding that he cannot recall any All Progressives Congress (APC) states commissioning such projects.
Atiku said Nigerians had seen the difference between the PDP government and the APC-led administration, adding that having experienced governance of both parties, Nigerians should be wiser in future.
Also, Governor Bala Mohammed said the bye-pass road was named after Atiku Abubakar in recognition of his contributions to the evolution of democracy and as one of the founding fathers of the PDP.
Mohammed pointed out that when his government commenced in 2019, he made promises based on a developmental roadmap, tagged: My Bauchi Project.
He said his administration did not take the confidence the people reposed on his government for granted, pointing out that public office was the secular trust that should be held with a high sense of responsibility.
“For us, the equitable distribution of resources should be the cornerstone of government business as a deliberate strategy, not only to deepen inclusion of stakeholder ownership of projects but also to significantly reduce the feelings of marginalisation and exclusion that has become a huge threat to national unity,” he said.
