Bindow declares 3-day mourning over death of Chief of Staff

Gov. Mohammed Bindow of Adamawa said on Tuesday his administration would in the next two years focus attention on developmental projects in rural areas.

Bindow made this known in Yola at the swearing-in ceremony of 50 Development Area Administrators.

“The time to concentrate on grassroots governance has come. I urge the newly sworn-in administrators to maintain fairness to people at the grassroots.

“I want to assure the people that more infrastructural projects will be allocated to the rural areas within the remaining two years.

“My administration had concentrated development in the Jimeta-Yola metropolis and 12 other local government areas,’’ he said.

He explained that his administration decided to concentrate on providing infrastructure in the state capital in order to develop the area.

Speaking earlier, Alhaji Abdulrahaman Jimeta, the Chief of Staff to the governor, had urged the administrators to be loyal to their council chairmen.

Jimeta also reminded the administrators that the scope of their job was purely political, and advised them not to encroach on the day-to-day administration of the councils.

Alhaji Sulaiman Garba, the Administrator, Belel Sarau Development Area of Maiha Local Government Area, expressed appreciation to the governor for finding them worthy to serve in that capacity.

Speaking on behalf of his colleagues, Garba assured the governor that people at the grassroots were being sensitised to the significance of the policies and programmes of his administration to their living standard.

The Adamawa government had in the past passed a law creating development areas from the existing local government areas in the state.
