A Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Kaduna State, Shehu Usman Adamu, has said that though the North has been in problem, it is presently in ‘serious’ problem and bedevilled with monumental developmental challenges under the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, Page 36 learnt.
Adamu disclosed this in a video post which he made on the plight of the North and its citizens.
Speaking in Hausa language in the clip, which PRNigeria obtained, (not Page 36), Prof. Adamu lamented that the North is bedevilled with critical issues hindering its socio-economic development.
The former Commissioner of Education in Kaduna State, under Governor Nasir El-Rufai, stated that while other regions in the country are beneficiaries of various projects, the North has been left to settle with substandard, if not totally absent infrastructural projects.
His words: “Roads contracts in other geopolitical zones have been completed or almost completed. But the ones in North have been abandoned, and till he finishes his second term in Office, prominent road projects in the North, such as the Kano-Abuja expressway, and several others, will remain uncompleted.
“The condition of roads in the North, have further become deplorable. Talking about railway, the railway line from Kano to Abuja via Kaduna, is still a dream. Nothing has been done. No to talk about the one they promised to do from Kano to Katsina, then Daura.
“It has become so scary that bandits now fix the amount of money to be paid before Farmers in Zamfara are allowed access to their farms. And if Northerners do not farm, we all know what it will spell. So, I am calling on you, President Muhammadu Buhari, to come to our aid. Come and rescue those who stood by you and voted you into Office. That we love you, does not mean we should not tell you the bitter truth when things seem not to be working at all.”
