BAUCHI— The people of Bauchi State have lauded the Federal Government for reappointing Senator Bala Muhammad, Kauran Bauchi, as the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT.
In a statement by the Chairman, Kaura Project, Alhaji Kabir Nata’ala, the choice of Senator Muhammad as a minister representing Bauchi State was indeed, a step in the right direction, considering his vast experience and tremendous contribution towards the development of Bauchi State.
‘’Apart from the fact that Senator Mohammed is a politician, he is also generous and a gentleman who carries everybody along irrespective of tribal or religious differences.
‘’He is a nationalist, who believes in the rule of law as well as putting the interest of the nation above any other consideration.
‘’These sterling qualities coupled with his dedication to up lift his community and Nigeria in general is what endeared him to the people of the state and the country at large’,’’ the statement added.
He recalled that it was Senator Bala Muhammad who moved the motion for the transfer of executive powers to the then Vice President Goodluck Jonathan at a time many Nigerians were afraid of coming out to acknowledge that late President Yar’adua was incapacitated to lead the country.
Nata’ala then appealed to the President Goodluck Jonathan to endeavour to always appoint the right people in his cabinet so as to move the country to greater heights.
