Bala Mohammed Abdulkadir, Bauchi State Governor, has announced the donation of a utility bus and office accommodation to the Nigeria Institute of Public Relations, NIPR Bauchi State Chapter.
The governor had last year during his investiture as National Patron of the NIPR promised NIPR Bauchi the two facilities.
Bala Mohammed stated this on Thursday during the Citizens’ Summit For National Integration, Peace and Security organised by the NIPR at the ML Audu Auditorium Federal Polytechnic Bauchi.
He said the NIPR is a critical stakeholder in the drive to engender peace and security in Nigeria, especially putting into consideration current insecurity and lawlessness prevalent in the country.
The governor who was represented by the Secretary to the Bauchi State Government, Barrister Ibrahim Kashim said that Bauchi State is able to maintain its position as the most peaceful state in the Northeast and one of the most peaceful in the country, will not stop his administration from doing more to sustain and improve the tempo.
He frowned at the fact that despite various initiatives by successive governments since independence, Nigeria is not yet a united and indivisible country.
