Not comfortable with the collapsed of infrastructure facilities across the nooks and crannies of the country, the need for elected politicians, well to do individuals and Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) to come to the aide of the government, have become a source of concern to the Deputy senate Minority Leader, Emmanuel Bwacha.
Bwacha who stated this at the commissioning ceremony of a magistrate court renovated and furnished by him at Mararaba Donga in Donga Local Government Council of Taraba state, was of the opinion that government alone cannot herald the much needed development to the state and the country at large.
He charged politicians, well to do individuals and NGOs to identified collapsed public structures in the state and assist the government and the people in renovating them, adding that allowing government alone to shoulder such responsibilities ” is not the best.”
Lauding the efforts of the state government in ensuring adequate security of lives and property, he beckoned at the people of the area to jealousy protect the court and other public projects which includes the recently commissioned 1X7.5 MVA /33/11KV injection substation in the area by the governor Arc. Darius Dickson Ishaku from vandals.
Visibly elated at the sole efforts of the senator, the state chief Judge, Josephine Tuktur, as observed by our correspondent immediately upgraded the said court to a magistrate court. The situation which she said would reduced the hardship the people from traveling several kilometers went to attend court cases in nearby Councils.
Aligning her weight to that of the senator, she passionately pleaded to persons with the well withers to tread the paths of Bwacha, by identifying any of the courts that are cap in hand seeking for attention for renovation.
On his own part, the governor who observed that the Deputy Senate Minority Leader have been extending the much needed olive branches to his constituency and the state at large, stressed the need for the people to continue to eschew acts capable of thwarting the peace efforts of the state government.
Reiterating his administration determination to spread the dividends of democracy across the length and breadth of the state, he pleaded with the people to continue to ” give me peace and I will continue to give you development.”
