Gen. MK Yake retired as your Chief Security Adviser and Permanent Secretary
Security Government House in person of Mrs Lydia Tsamani.

belonging in the affairs of Bauchi State saying “Bauchi state is now back to
her people and the euphoria you’ve cause us is indeed well acknowledged and

about your ability to deliver and citizen’s of our state are beginning see
their prayers and yearnings been answered”.
“Your administration is indeed doing more than enough

bring exclusively to your notice for kind consideration the yearnings of the
Zaar Community which are basically development of the land and her people as it
remains the Cardinal driving force of the Zaar (Sayawa) Development
According to him, Zaar Community has suffered so much
marginalization and injustice overtime ,and they are been treated as second
Class citizens in their State either because of their Faith or ethnicity. But
since his emergence the Zaarman has been given a sense of belonging and they
can proudly say they are now one and united people.
Explained stated that “Our region has been
characterized by violence and crisis- for over two decades our people have been
attacked in there farms and homes, leading to desertion of some of our
communities by their residence. As I speaks, your Excellency some of our
communities have been rusticated with indigenes members of such communities
seeking refuge in other places”.
The President said without any gainsay the effect of crisis
in their region speaks for itself as number of youth have engaged in drug
abuse, theft, vandalization of public properties, thuggery, unnecessary violence and other
social vices due to the effect of those crisis, while some have lost there shops and sources of
livelihood and it does not speak well of

Process was initiated by Barrister Kefas Magaji, the CTC Chairman of Tafawa
Balewa LGA and ZDA under my watch has keyed into it. I most also applaud the
peace we’ve enjoyed since your emergence as Governor, as we are hopefull of a
He lamented that the region and her people have been
abandoned over the past decade, adding that the region have not enjoyed
projects from the state Government and and their youths and Women neglected

Rt. Honorable Yakubu Dogara who used the instrumentally of his office as
Speaker of the 8th Assembly to bring developmental project to his constituency
which in turn their communities enjoyed some.
“But as i speak to you even some of the project he
brought are in a Sorry stage as the previous administration were reluctant in
accepting such projects and putting it in shape. More than Fifty Primary Health

contribute our hard earned money to employ some staffs temporary and also
equipped those places with drugs in our effort to putting few among others to
function.The General Hospital Tafawa Balewa too is begging for your attention
to come back alive..
We also had to take absolute responsibility to watch over
certain projects such as buildings, solar panels and boreholes to avoid vandalization. So many Road projects have been abandoned
within our communities.

your indulgence to support such a giant stride to it’s full actualization and

attract massive development in our State. At some point Education was gradually

of our Children learning there and also the NOUN study center in Bogoro is also
The prayer of Our people is that we want to have adequate
