Fast Fact On the ” First 100-days” Of Buni’s Benchmark
By Daily Hint Damaturu
Look how far we’ve come. That is the aim of the 100-day retrospective, to assess our new leaders after they’ve had enouh time to take action but b seems like an arbitrary measure- if something happens on the 1st day, it is somehow less important? Presidents and Governors can get a surprising amount done in their first three-and-some -odd months.
There are facts on people’s opinions about the performance of Governor Mai Mala Buni’s 100-days in office. Indeed, the last 2months and few days of Gov. Buni in office cannot but remain memorable for the people of the state following the overwhelming vote that brought him to power in the March 9, General elections.
The two Magnitude projects that will turn the fortunes of Yobeans around and make it a state of envy.
The beginning of the end of unemployment and wealth creation has just emerged. And Yobe will indeed become a shinning example of what governance should be about at all levels.
Everything is set for the ground breaking foundation laying ceremony of the two outstanding magnitude projects as the 100-days benchmark of Buni’s led administration.
The programme is schedule for today 4)9/2019 and the chief host is the Governor and is expected to perform the ground breaking foundation stone laying ceremony for the construction of the potiskum Trailer park and Mechanic’s village in potiskum town today Wednesday 4/9/2019 and the resuscitation of the potiskum flour/feed Mills and the potiskum Aluminum company.
On the 5/9/2019 which will mark Buni’s 100 remarkable days in office, will yet be another day of impacting life project, the foundation ceremony of 2,600 affordable housing scheme that will cut across the state.
Gov. Buni noted that the move reflects the policy of his administration to provide quality and affordable housing to the people of our state.
In line with the United Nations sustainable development Goals (SDGs) we believe that affordable housing is a key marker of social progress when people have comfortable accommodations, they are more likely to have the right frame of mind to engage in meaningful socio-economic activities.
The Allocation of housing units is as follows: 500 units in Yobe zone A with Gaidam and Buni-Yadi towns each having 250 units. In zone B, Buni will construct 250 units in potiskum and 200 units in Damagum town of Fune local Government area. In zone C Buni cite the houses in Gashua town with 250 units, Nguru with 200 units and Machina with 150 units.
The state capital, Damaturu will have 1000 units of the houses of this number 500, will be cited along potiskum road, 250 along Maiduguri road and the remaining 250 units along Gujba road.
Gov. Buni’s achievement on education, health and Agriculture is worth commendable. His declaration of state of emergency on education is indeed a great beginning to dilapidated sector of education in the state. The government set up a technical committee to checkmate the state’s Basic/ secondary education, which they’ve done and came up with report and a report which the Governor have approved the implementation of the committees report to fast track the lingering problem crippling the sector.
Buni have made a tremendous achievement on health sector by signing a MOU between Yobe state government and the Bill & Melinda Gates and Dangote foundation. The Gov. Also reveal that as part of effort to strengthen the primary healthcare, more primary healthcare centres will be built across the state to cater for the needs of people in the rural areas of the state.
Also as part of our determination to institute a functional primary healthcare system, we plan to establish at least one primary healthcare facility in each of the 178 wards in the state, and assign the personnel required to manage them properly.
