FG Still Committed To Infrastructural Services Despite Inadequate Resources

The Federal Government has once again reiterated its commitment towards the provision of critical infrastructural services across the nation despite inadequate resources and low budgetary provision.

This was contained in a statement by the Minister of State II for Power, Works and Housing, Surv. Suleiman Hassan Zarma, mnis, when he received a delegation and Council members of Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University (ATBU), Bauchi, in his office at the Ministry’s Headquarters today in Abuja.

Zarma stated that budget is usually inadequate in all MDAs, but noted that President Buhari, in fulfilment of his campaign promises to Nigerians is committed to the yearnings and aspiration of the people towards the nation’s development.

Earlier in his address, the Vice Chancellor of the University, Prof. Abdulrahman Ibrahim, on behalf of the delegation expressed their delight to the Minister for receiving the team at a short notice despite his tight schedule. He commended the Ministry on its achievements and success story in the housing, power and road sectors since the inception of this administration.

He thanked the Ministry for including ATBU among the nine pilot universities to benefit from the rural electrification project in Nigeria

Prof. Abdulrahman Ibrahim stated that their mission is to solicit the support of the Minister and indeed the ministry towards the provision of road network projects in the main campus and also the upgrading of its present 0.5 megawatt to 3.5 megawatt electricity to enhance proper and effective utilization. He lamented that the present budgetary provision of the university is grossly inadequate for these huge projects; hence they crave the support and intervention of the Ministry towards the realization of these projects.

The delegation was led by the Chancellor and Chairman of Council, Amb. Mrs. Nimota Akanbi,OON, Vice Chancellor Prof. Abdulrahman Ibrahim and other Council members of the University and were also present.

The Minister thanked the ATBU authority for the honour accorded him at the last convocation ceremony of the school, adding that the Ministry will not hesitate to render necessary support on the issues presented.
