Yelwan-Kagadam, a community that is a few miles from the seat of power of Bauchi State continues to see their children learn under trees, live in darkness and take sick relatives to hospitals in the state capital even as the state secured a N2.5b loan for the construction and renovation of hospitals and constructed 270 schools and renovated 405 schools in the state for N3b.
Malam Musa Gayya, a traditional titleholder from Yelwan-Kagadama stated this while speaking with Globe Fm Bauchi.
He said that the area is densely populated, hence the need to have basic life-supporting amenities in line with global best practices.
Malam Musa decried that Yelwan-Kagadama was left behind in terms of the distribution of social amenities critical to a meaningful life.
He appealed to the state government to come to their aid.
