Atiku asks FG to emulate PDP governors’ projects to tackle insecurity

Former Vice President Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has advised the federal government to emulate infrastructural projects executed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governors to tackle insecurity in the country.

Atiku spoke Thursday in Bauchi during the inauguration of the 4.2 km Gombe-Maiduguri By-pass named after him.

He said government should note that infrastructural projects had become instruments of economic empowerment used in creating jobs.

He commended Bauchi State governor, Bala Mohammed, for embarking on critical infrastructure and urged him to sustain the momentum in order to accelerate the pace of good governance.

“You are virtually laying the pathway to the return of PDP in the state and also the country at large,” Atiku added. 

Mohammed said the state government decided to immortalise the former vice president in recognition of his contributions to the development of democracy in the country.
