Bauchi State Governor-elect, Mohammed Abubakar, has set up a body christened, ‘Re-branding Project’, to formulate new policies and programmes for the development of the state.

Speaking to newsmen in Bauchi, state Coordinator of Re-branding Project, Baba Abubakar Suleiman, said the body was made up of intellectuals and democrats who are indigenes of the state.

Suleiman, who is also the Minority Leader of the Bauchi State House of Assembly, said the body will be headed by six people as chairman, deputy chairman, coordinator and three others.

According to him, the objective of the rebranding project is to form alliance with all Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) with a view to formulate more policies that will guide the vision of the incoming administration.

“The Governor-elect has his own vision and plans on how to tackle the various developmental challenges in state and he wants to work with intellectuals and that is why he approved the  establishment of the Bauchi State Rebranding Project.

“The project will be used as a vehicle to solicit the support of intellectuals, democrats, retired and serving permanent secretaries, experienced indigenes of Bauchi State irrespective of their destination.

“All these people would be called to be part of the group to come and serve their state in their own capacity.

“By the time His Excellency, M.A. Abubkar, inaugurates us, we will come together and form analysis on all the MDA’s in the state.

“We will find out where the Incumbent government has done something wrong, whether it is one of his programmes or policies with a view to critically analyses those problems and proffer solution. “When we say the policy of the incumbent administration is wrong, that means the incoming government  have something different that will touch the lives of the common man in the state so that is the idea of the rebranding project.”

He said the report of the rebranding project would be married together with the blue print of the Governor-elect to tackle the problems and challenges confronting the development of the state.

“After the report has been made, we will marry it together with the Governor-elect’s vision because he already has his own blue print where he mapped out strategies on how to tackle developmental challenges in Bauchi State and these will be used effectively in fixing the Bauchi State’s lost glory.”
