The Bauchi State Governor-elect, Barrister Mohammed Abubakar has expressed  its determination to recover all state resources frittered away by People’s Democratic Party led administration.

Abubakar stated this yesterday during the inauguration ceremony of Bauchi state Re-branding project held at Awalah Hotel, Bauchi.

Represented by the deputy Governor-elect Engr. Nuhu Gidado, the governor-elect who expressed worry over the financial recklessness in the state lamented that “unfortunately, what Bauchi as a state is  currently brandishes is immeasurable financial recklessness culminating into massive indebtedness.

Abubakar who also lamented the menace of massive youth restiveness in the state said “now that our purposeful opposition and genuine progressive advocacy has culminated into a mandate of the generality of Bauchi State populace, we are charged to do things differently. We are committed to applying our intellect, maximizing our will and leveraging our relationships to make things work and make fulfillment of our promises.

“On assumption of duties as a government, we will focus on our quick win programs which include the tackling of youth restiveness, poor environmental sanitation and widespread corruption and corrupt practices.

He added that; “In this regard let us once more be categorical, that state resources fritters way will be recovered. This will be in addition to overhauling the Civil Service that is currently dysfunctional, indolent and lacking.

Abubakar revealed that a major commercial bank has stepped forward to assist the in-coming administration to conduct a forensic audit of the entire state and local government civil service personnel status with a view to developing a biometric data saying “this is a conscious effort to weed out non-existent personnel from the payroll of the state and local government service.

On the re-branding project, Abubakar said the aims of the proojcet are to rejuvenate the image of the state as well as reconnect with the last glory.
