Three hundred naira largesse from Jigawa State Governor, Alhaji Muhammed Badaru Abubakar, has torn Congress of Illegible Voters apart, after the group paid a solidarity visit to the state chief executive.
Trouble started immediately the governor asked the leaders of the group to remain behind for a ‘token’ according to the governor to enable them buy sachet water.
The group, which came in their droves, represents no fewer than 40 different associations that trooped to the Government House to express their unflinching support for President Muhammad Buhari and Alhaji Muhammed Badaru Abubakar come 2019.
Leader of the group, Comrade John Ngene Offia, said they are fully in support of President Buhari and Governor Badaru for their grassroots development initiatives witnessed in the country and various local government areas, as well as the communities in Jigawa State, respectively.
The group expressed satisfaction with the various interventions across all sectors on human endeavour, such as health, education, agriculture and environment, among others.
“We took notice of your administration’s effort in electrification and street lightening, which have already engulfed N1.40 billion. We are also aware of your effort in completing the works on the airport, which has consumed over N940 million,” he said.
While responding, Governor Mohammed Badaru Abubakar thanked the group on behalf of himself and President Buhari and said despite the insufficient funds encountered from the early days of this administration, a lot had been achieved by both federal and state governments.
The governor, therefore, promised to provide more dividends of democracy to the people without minding which party they belong to.
