In this interview with  Correspondent, Austin Ajayi in Yola the governorship hopeful bear his mind on his plans and vision  for Adamawa state.

Can we meet sir.

My name is Abdullahi Ahmed Musa from Gombi local government area of Adamawa state, born 53 years ago, a graduate of Ahmadu Bello University, and a businessman.

Why do people call you ‘Speaker’ particularly your close aliyes?

Yeah,  I was a student parliament speaker when I was in ABU .

You are an Aspirant in APC for the position of Governor, do you think you have a chance to pick the ticket when you have not really be in the forefront in the party’s struggle in the past?

That is not true, I have been in the party for sometime now, we have contributed our quota for the success of the party in the state and country.

I have been in private business where we made tremendous success which has given me an edge so now I want to contribute to the development of Adamawa.

My natural inclination to serve humanity prompted my decision to join politics so I can contribute my quota towards the socio-economic development of my dear state, Adamawa, I know I have the capacity to make Adamawa work again.

Sir, talking about making Adamawa state work again, what are the things you hope to do or infuse into governance if given the chance?

Thank you so much, yes, my political philosophy, I am a capitalist I believe in capitalism and I practice it to the latter because no life is free, you use what you have to get what you want.

Capitalism is a natural and most practical way to create wealth for self and the society, this has served most of the first world countries very well and I will use what we have as a state to get what we want for our development.

One sure way I will get this done is to allow local government allocation go straight to the councils this will enable the various local government councils to develop their plans for the people, they will use their resources to develop their councils and their people.

Adamawa state today is one of the most busiest airport in the country, we have four flights daily, I will invest on the Aviation sector for the state by leasing three Airplanes form boaing at a cost of just N650m in investment.

I will leverage on the possibility of leasing up to three 737 aircraft which has a capacity of flying 148 persons per trip.

Apart from creating  well paying jobs for our youths in their hundreds we will also be having about N8billion monthly after all expenses as internally generated revenue.

Agriculture and Tourism will also be my focus, first will go the Ruga option to sustain peace from Farmers-Herders crisis. 

Each senatoral district will have a vast of about 300 hectares of land to confine those cattles in a place, we will build an earth dam,a vetrinay and grasses for the cattle to feed on and a hostel, we will not allocate the place to any individual.

No individual family will be allowed there but the herders will only stay in the hostel after which they will return to their homes.

The local government administration will be responsible for managing the reserves including the hostel, fees and movement of cattle from one location to another.

On tourism, I will revive the Yola international hotel which is the best in North East region but successive government policies have destroyed the hotel and lying comatose but I will revive it .

Education remains the bedrock for any development the money from the federation account will be used.

Cleric Advocates Educational Reform In Nigeria, Berates Change In National Anthem




Spread the love

Reverend Father Maurice Kwairanga, the Parish Priest of Saint Charles Lwanga Catholic Church, Ngurore is emphasizing the need for educational reform in Nigeria, rather than just changing the national anthem.

He believes that the energy spent on changing the anthem could have been better spent addressing the issues in the education system, such as decay in public schools and institutions.

The priest said this during a mass to commemorate Saint Charles Lwanga Day and also unveiled a learning institute to address the decaying standard of education across the country.

He said it is worrisome that structures in public schools are now death traps, and unqualified teachers are now mentors of the younger generation.

He said the church has taken the initiative to establish a new school, Saint Charles Lwanga Nursery, primary school, and college, to contribute to improving education in the country.

“We will build a world-class school in this part of Nigeria. As a church, we might not have the funds at the moment, but we have the will to do it. The Saint Charles Lwanga Nursery and Primary will have all the modern teaching equipment and qualified teachers, unlike what is obtainable in the public schools”

His message highlights the importance of prioritizing education to drive meaningful change and development in Nigeria.

As a church leader, he lent his voice in calling for patriotic Nigerians to invest in education by supporting initiatives that will strengthen the sector and improve the standard of education.

Highlights of the Saint Charles Lwanga Day in Ngurore were traditional dances from different communities.
