Former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has stated that states controlled by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) perform better than those controlled by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

He said their performance is based on the commissioning of projects.

According to Atiku, states controlled by the APC are simply sleeping as projects are not being commissioned there.

He therefore asked the federal government to also learn from the PDP states.

Abubakar made the statement when he commissioned a 4.2-kilometre road constructed by the Bauchi State government, on Thursday in Bauchi.

The Gombe to Maiduguri road by-pass was named Alhaji Atiku Abubakar Road.

He commended the Bauchi State governor, Bala Mohammed, for the developmental milestones he has recorded in the state in his two and a half years in office.

Atiku said, “Let me start by commending you because you have done very, very excellently well. For the few hours I have been in Bauchi today, I have been impressed by the infrastructural developments that I have personally seen and not been told.

“These programmes that you have implemented and continue to implement, are the bedrock of development be it educational, health care delivery or any other aspects of development. But, most importantly, these developmental projects have become instruments of economic empowerment.

“By economic empowerment, they have also created thousands of jobs for our teeming youths. Let me commend you for reducing the unemployment in the state and the country at large because it is this unemployment that creates security challenges that we are currently facing in this country.”

He added, “I wish the federal government will copy what the PDP governors and PDP states are doing in this country because, in every PDP state you go, you will find infrastructural development projects taking place.

“I cannot recall any APC states commissioning projects. Therefore, your Excellency, you are virtually laying the pathway to the return of PDP in this state and in the country at large. I want to commend your contributions in that regard.”

In his speech, Bauchi State governor, Bala Mohammed, said that the road project conceived and executed by his administration was in fulfilment of his campaign promises to the people.

He said, “We are here to commission the long-awaited 4.2 kilometres Gombe-Maiduguri road by-pass in Bauchi metropolis. This is a very strategic road in many respects, first, like every other road, it will promote economic activities that will improve the likelihood of the people.

“Second, the physical development will enhance the aesthetic beauty of the state capital hence, moving us closer to achieving the environmental plan we envisioned for a modern Bauchi city.”

He said that when he came into office in 2020, he made a lot of promises based on the developmental roadmap tagged: “My Bauchi Project”, which laid out his ambitious plan to take Bauchi State from the back quarters of development to the front seat of human progress.
