We enjoy 24hrs power supply only when you’re around – Daura leaders tell Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari
Community leaders in the five local government areas under Daura emirate yesterday told President Muhammadu Buhari that they enjoy 24 hours power supply only when he is in town, Daily Trust reports.
The president hosted leaders of various communities from five LGs, as part of Eid El-Kabir celebration.
One of the community leaders, Mohammed Saleh, said “Anytime the President is around we enjoy 24 hours power supply. But if he is not around, the power supply is not always stable.”
He commended the president for signing a bill to establish a Federal Polytechnic in Daura, after they had complained that the area needed a tertiary institution to encourage the youth to pursue higher education.
He also lamented how unemployment was fueling car theft and other vices in their area.
Another leader of the community, Yusuf Bello Mai’ Aduwa, thanked Nigerians for giving the President a second mandate to lead the country for another four years, stressing that he will not let the country down.
In her remarks, Hajiya Talatu Nasir, a Permanent Secretary with the Ministry of Information, said President Buhari’s government had empowered many women, with many already owning businesses like poultry and livestock farms.
