A Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Adamawa State, Abdullahi Musa, has on Monday, shamed the Governors of the States in the Northern region, who have failed to harness the potentials of the region, and generate billions or trillions of naira to develop their States, but instead, wait every month for Federal Allocation from President Muhammadu Buhari, Page 36 learnt.
Abdullahi spoke in a Press interview, in Yola, the State capital.
He said that Adamawa State in particular, is an Eldorado of Agriculture, among other endowments, richly blessed, so much so that it can grow virtually every crop, in addition to the vast cattle and poultry resources, all of which can be harnessed for radically improved Internally Generated Revenue, IGR.
His exact words: “We need to develop our capacity. We must develop our human capital. We must look inward. We make less than N1 billion Internally Generated Revenue monthly. It is a shame, when we are so blessed with so many things.
“Our people must see that this Airport, the Yola Interanion Airport, can generate much money. We have hydro resources, the Kiri Dam is there in Shelleng LGA. We have farmlands.
“Look at the rice revolution in Kebbi. We have rice belts here to grow more rice than Kebbi. We are not doing this. We sit down instead, and wait for Buhari’s money every month.”
