A group, Ethnic Minority Movement for the Support of Kaura/Jatau 2023 Campaign has congratulated Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed, on a successful re-election bid.
Leadership reported that the group expressed their happiness for the re-election of Bala Mohammed, in a press release issued by the Chairman, Samuel J. Haruna, and made available to journalists in Bauchi on Monday.
Haruna said the governor’s unparalleled achievements recorded in four years of his stewardship, from 2019, formed the basis for the socio-economic growth of the state and made the minorities in the state support his re-election bid.
He said, “As people who yearn for socio-economic and infrastructural development of the state, it becomes imperative to us as citizens of the state to give him another four-year mandate to enable him consolidate on the achievements of his administration. Democratic rule has presented us with the opportunity to elect leaders to lead us who will impact positively on our lives.
“Thus, we can rightly assert that the people of the state are reaping the dividends of democracy which are being provided in the form of construction of roads, expansion, and rehabilitation of water supply in Bauchi metropolis, youth and women empowerment, construction of Ultra Modern Bauchi Pilgrims Camp for both Christians and Muslim, construction of befitting Government House, security of lives and property amongst others.
“The leadership of the Bauchi State Ethnic Minority Movement for the support of the Kaura/Jatau 2023 campaign wishes to profoundly express its appreciation to the entire ethnic minorities of Bauchi State for the unflinching support given to the Senator Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed and other candidates of the PDP during the last elections.
“During our numerous visits to various communities (of the ethnic minorities) cut across the length and breadth of the various local government areas of the state to canvass for support for His Excellency, people repeatedly assured us that they were come out en-masse to cast votes for Kauran Bauchi during the gubernatorial election.
“The result of the elections is a clear pointer to the fact that the ethnic minorities in this state can determine the outcome of an election if we all cooperate and work together towards a common cause.
“Our collective resolve to work towards the re-emergence of Sen. Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed as the Executive Governor of Bauchi State is borne out by the concrete and viable structures his administration had put forward to forge the state.”
The group, therefore, called on all ethnic minorities of the state and the entire people of Bauchi state regardless of party affiliations to give Bala Mohammad the needed support, loyalty, and cooperation to keep him focused to undertake the execution of people-oriented programs and policies.
