Bauchi State Government says it has discovered an aircraft belonging to the state which is hidden in Morocco.
Governor Mohammed Abubakar of the state made this known on Saturday night in Bauchi in a broadcast marking 100 days of his administration.
He said that the recovered aircraft would be received by the state government in few days at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa International Airport, Bauchi.
The governor said that the aircraft was recovered by a committee set up by the government and headed by Air commandore Ahmed Tijjani-Baba (Rtd).
“The committee will now beam its satellite on the ministry for local affairs and the State Basic Education Board to see how billions of naira allocated to them were spent.
“Such example are the N2bn micro loans and others that were allocated them, but carelessly spent leaving our pupils to study under the trees,” he said.
Abubakar assured that the state government would soon embark on the construction and reconstruction of some rural feeder roads to ease transportation problems.
He said that the government had refurbished five trucks belonging to the State Fire Service as part of safety measures.
Abubakar said that 420 youths had been engaged as street cleaners by the government under its youth employment scheme to curb youth restiveness.
He said that water supply, especially within Bauchi metropolis, had improved following special interventions such as regular payment of electricity bills and upgrade of electricity gadgets at Gubi Dam.
The governor called on the people of the state to support his administration to enable it serve them.
