“We borrowed N100 billion in four years” — Governor of Bauchi

Bauchi State Governor Bala Mohammed has announced that his administration has borrowed a total of N100 billion since assuming office in 2019.

He explained at a meeting of the National Executive Council on Wednesday that infrastructure projects alone had consumed over N90 billion.

The governor said some of the funds were directed to the education and health sectors.

he said: “Look at the projects and programs that we have just started. We have borrowed N100 billion and currently our infrastructure projects amount to over N90 billion.

“Of course, we’re going to save some for education and health. We’re saving what little money we’re getting from the federal government so that we can use this loan to just do infrastructure.” You need to realize that. We are not thieves. We are not here to remove anything from your system. We want all of our Kobos back.

“This is the third Executive Council meeting since we returned for a second term. Our attitude towards work is to ensure that we make a difference. Bauchi State is our number one concern. Yes, we have no qualms about anyone. Of course there are distractions here and there, but we don’t allow any distractions.”

The governor expressed his determination to maintain transparency, committed to entering into performance bonds with commissioners for effective service delivery, and urged commissioners to prioritize accountability.
