Bala Mohammed Apologises To Nigerian Legion Over Unfulfilled Promises

Bauchi State Governor Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed has expressed anger that one year after he directed an office accommodation to Nigerian Legion Bauchi State Chapter is not yet done. 

The governor blamed unnecessary bureaucracy for Bauchi State Government’s inability to fulfil the promise. 

Bala said this on Friday during the launching of the 2023 Emblem Appeal Fund Week at the Banquet Hall of the Government House Bauchi.

The governor apologises for the inability of the government to fulfil the promise, adding that in one week, an office would be procured for the legionnaires.

As part of his donation for this year’s Emblem Appeal Fund Week, Bala announced a donation of N1.5 million while his Deputy gave N1 million naira. 

Cumulatively, Bauchi State Government donated N10.3 million to celebrate this year’s armed forces remembrance day.

“Our fallen heroes have made the greatest sacrifices to allow us to enjoy collective lives,” he said.

Speaking, Bauchi State Chairman of the Nigerian Legion, Idris Danjuma Ningi commended the support government exhibited for the progress and development of the Nigerian Legion in the state. 

He said retired members of the armed forces are ever ready to offer contributions to sustain and improve the current level of peace and harmony in Bauchi State.

The Chairman emphasised the need for the government to redeem all pledges made to the legion in good time for smooth implementation.

WikkiTimes recalls that last year, the governor promised to provide the Bauchi State Chapter of the Nigerian Legion with office accommodation which is yet to provide to the legionnaires.
