By Bashir Hassan Abubakar

Towards enhancing Local Government Administration and encouraging healthy competition among chairmen of LGAs, The Bauchi state council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) has advocated for funds to performing LGAs as reward incentive.

Chairman of the NUJ Umar Sa’idu said this on Monday during a special press conference conducted by the union at the secretariat of Bogoro local government, calling on the State Government to make adequate provision for funds to performing LGAs.

He said performing local governments chairmen should be provided with more funds so that they would be encouraged to do more.

Sa’idu pointed out that local governments are closer to the people pointing out that if they are supported, they could execute projects that would impact positively on people’s lives.

The chairman noted that the chairman of Bogoro local government Iliya Habila who is a journalist by profession is one of the most performing chairmen in the state.

According to him, the idea to hold the press conference in Bogoro as against Bauchi NUJ secretariat as usual was to identify with their colleague who has become an elected local government chairman.

4.92 CGPA
Best Graduating Student Civil Engineering

I was still recovering from the loss of my mum when I lost my dad my first semester in CU. It was tough for me because of how close we were. I also didn’t know how my life would be after that. My family members were worried I wouldn’t be able to cope.

Through the family drama, depression and the silent tears at night, God told me specifically in 100 level He would see me through. He said I had a Father in Him and I’d never be alone.

Year after year, God kept making things easy for me and gave me more for all I had lost. In Him I found true joy and peace.

This is more than an achievement for me but a reminder of Gods faithfulness to me and His intentionality towards me. Even before I prayed, God always made provision. God is good to me.

Despite all I went through, God strengthened me and made me mentally stable. I worked really hard and I’m so proud of myself!

This one is for you mummy and daddy �❤️
Your girl did it. God did it for me.
Trust God. Trust the process.

The deployment policies according to him are aimed at broadening the youth’s understanding of the country, thereby standing them in good stead for effective contribution to the promotion of national unity and integration.

“I therefore, encourage you to ensure healthy interactions, exchange ideas and build lasting friendships with a view to advancing the progress of a united Nigeria.

“My dear compatriots, today, you have taken the solemn oath to dedicate yourselves to the service of our fatherland. I enjoin you to always ponder over the significance of the oath and be guided by its spirit and letters. In the same vein, I advise you to familiarize yourselves with the content of both the NYSC Act and the NYSC Bye-Laws”. He charged them.

The NYSC boss however cautioned the youth against indulgence in cultism, drug abuse and other social vices through out their service year urging them to also use the social media only for the promotion of unity and other positive purposes rather than rumour peddling and the promotion of hatred.

Also speaking, the state governor Mai Mala Buni represented by the commissioner of youth and sports Goni Bukar Lawan asserted that the NYSC scheme has over time proven to be a major unifier amongst youths in the country’s quest to break down the walls of ethnicity, religious bigotry, and primordial sentiments.

“This it has continued to be achieved by re-orientating and redirecting their minds towards national goals and aspirations.
