He stated that even though , when the government came on board unfortunately, there was economic meltdown because the price of Oil which was the main stay of Nigeria’s economy was below $30 dollar per barrel , but gradually things continue to improve as a result of intense economic measures taken by president Muhammad Bauhari, where states receive their monthly allocation from the Federation account , but what was achieve in Jigawa state was very little in terms of provision of infrastructures in the state.
He lamented that masses and workers came out massively and voted for the government but have been crying due to abject poverty while party’s stalwarts who suffered during electioneering were disowned totally by the governor.
‘’We went all nooks and crannies of Jigawa state during campaigns , made promises to improve the living standard but my worry is that we failed them , and if you give advice, the governor will out rightly regard you as his enemy. Let me say that any government which is not heed to advice is on sleeper sand and is bound to fail woefully,’’ he pointed .
The Ex. Councilor of Kazure local government council who commended the efforts of the governor for continue with roads projects he inherited from the PDP government despite lean resources of the state as well boosting agriculture ,advised him to do more in other areas in order to improve the welfare of the masses of the state and also cautioned the governor to be careful with cabals within the government whose only after to make their lives better at the expense of the majority .
He debunked the insinuation that some people sponsor him to with air time to attack the government of Badaru saying that it was a baseless allegation which has no iota of truth adding that he will not fold his arms, ’where ever I see things going abnormal, I must advice the government to follow the right path no matter the extent of pressure , intimidation or harassment meted against me, ‘’
