Bauchi State Governor, Senator Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed has saluted the courage and patriotism of all those democrats,dead or alive who strived to ensure that democracy is well grounded in the country.

He also congratulated all at this historic occasion of Democracy Day just as he joins citizens in celebrating the day “with prayers for a more united and prosperous Nigeria of our collective dream”.

Governor Mohammed in his goodwill message to mark this year’s June 12 as Democracy Day in the country said that “
We labored together to arrive where we are today and we shall continue to march the state forward to greatness with determination and sincerity of purpose with your support and prayers”.

” The Almighty Allah (SWT) has made it possible for us to witness yet another Democracy Day in the political journey of our Great Country, and today marks the second Democracy Day observed and celebrated by the administration”.

The Governor said,”I am most grateful to Allah (SWT) for the giant strides so far achieved within the period that has started transforming the lives of our people and repositioning our State to compete favorably in infrastructure, security to lives and property, human development, agriculture, education, health, water supply and in other sectors of the economy with other states not forgetting our poor revenue base.

According to him, ” The two -year journey was not a bed of roses and it wasn’t that easy. But with determination and the support enjoyed from the good people of the state, we were able to pilot the affairs of government to a sound socio -political pedestal.

“In the course of the journey to greatness, the government had to introduce several administrative and financial management mechanisms hitherto alien to the system to support the Action Plan to fruition within the two-year period”, he added.

“As a Government with a mandate to serve, it will be a repeat to remind the people of how we found the state littered with infrastructural decay and lack of direction. We met Bauchi State lacking in development with abandoned projects that could not be completed”.

” Our Government inherited situation and gathered enough strength to change the narratives. We rolled out our blue-print and commenced action to save the situation for the good of our people. Today, the story has changed. The Government has justified the confidence reposed in it. We have touched the lives of our people positively. We have changed the narratives and restored the lost glory of the state with pride. The Governor said.

“The Bauchi State Government under the inspirational leadership of the present administration has taken the path to societal growth and shall remain focused and determined to leave our foot – prints on the sands of time, he stated, and vowed to remain steadfast in the struggle to making Bauchi State a reference point in infrastructural and human development.
