By David Adenuga, Bauchi

Bauchi State Governor, Sen. Bala Mohammed has explained that the move to dissolve his cabinet became necessary because he needed to bring in people with political experience to steer the affairs of the state.

Mohammed spoke at the empowerment Programme for women and youths in Zaki and Gamawa local government areas of the state while marking this year’s Democracy Day.

No fewer than 1,000 women and youths benefited from the N150 million empowerment program by the state government.

The Nation reports that Governor Mohammed had on 9th June 2021, sacked his cabinet comprising 21 Commissioners.

The governor also sacked the Secretary to the State Government, the Chief of Staff, Government House, and Special Advisers with the exception of four Special Advisers.

In his words ,”I dissolved my cabinet because some of them do not know much about politics, so I had to bring in the real politicians who can do the job and join hands with me to move the state forward.

“Nevertheless, I must commend them, because they performed very well and I am grateful for the efforts they made towards the success of my administration.

“I just have to get others, that is the real politicians that can do the job together with me and move the state forward as we are determined to fulfil the campaign promises we made to the people of the state,” Governor Mohammed said.

Meanwhile, the governor has eulogised the Late Nigeria business mogul turned politician, Chief Moshood Kashimowo Abiola describing him as the architect of the modern democratic rule the country has been enjoying for the past 22 years.

The late adjudged winner of the annulled June 12 1993 presidential election was also eulogized for his immense contributions to democracy in Nigeria.

Mohammed therefore urged politicians to emulate his exemplary lifestyle, stressing that life is about impacting positively the lives of people.

“As Nigeria marks Democracy Day, June 12, we remember the great M.K O.Abiola who during his lifetime impacted positively the lives of Nigerians by empowering them.

“His exemplary life is worthy of emulation and that is the reason I choose this particular day to empower the lives of Bauchi people with these incentives to improve their standard of living.

“We have recorded giant strides in the area of infrastructure development, education, women and youth empowerment, health amongst others. Despite the limited resources at our disposal, we are still striving to achieve more feats in order to justify the confidence reposed on us by the people of the state,” he said further.
