In the quest to consolidate on his achievements of the past three years, Governor Mohammed Umar Jibrilla Bindow of Adamawa State has reiterated his resolve to remain focused and not to be deterred by the mounting political challenges in state.
This was contained in a statement signed by the Special Assistant to the governor on Media and Publicity, Macauley Hunohashi.
According to the statement, when the present administration took over in 2015, Adamawa could best be described as a “failed State” with a prevailing atmosphere of despair.
It stated further that civil servants were owed seven months salary arrears, basic infrastructure such as road, healthcare delivery, water supply and the education sector were in deplorable state.
“Now we pay salaries as and when due, we have started and completed 392 roads across the state and over 500 box culverts and 5 major bridges in 18 out of 21 local government areas of the state have been constructed”, The statement stated.
“With the state of emergency declared in the education sector, the Bindow led administration has renovated 4 major secondary schools, one in each of the senatorial zones: in Numan, a brand new hospital complex is at 95 percent completion, while the Specialist hospital in Yola, general hospital in Ganye as well as Mubi are been renovated and upgraded”, it stated further.
In view of the good work, Bindow therefore urged the good people of Adamawa to shine their eyes and be weary of politicians, “who hide behind religion to whip up ill feeling rather than engage in persuasive political dialectics to convince the electorate.
