Sir, as a concerned indigene of Misau Local Government Area, I feel compelled to write this letter to you with the hope that it will be a reminder on a project that seems to be abandoned by your administration.
Your Excellency, I want to commend you for the unparalleled projects, especially in the area of road construction both in urban and rural areas which you have bequeathed in Bauchi State not to mention other roads that are still under construction. The reading public, inhabitants of Bauchi State as well as visitors to the state can testify to the good work you are doing.
Bauchi metropolis today has roads built with green verges, pedestrian walkways, drainage systems, street lights and bus stops powered by solar, all thanks to the development of your orientation.
Sir, the people of Misau Local Government Area want to draw your attention to the construction and reconstruction of three major roads in the area. These are: Marshall Road in the metropolis of Misau that links different areas to the Emir’s Palace and A.D Rufa’i College of Education, Legal and General Studies, Misau, Ajili-Gargawa Road that links Ajili and Gargawa to the metropolitan city of Misau and also Gwaram Road that links Gwaram and Hardawa towns.
As we all know, the road network contributes immensely to the socio economic development of a society.
It is also important to draw the attention of the governor to the plight of the silent minority of his people who feel they have been neglected and treated unfairly in the fair award of road construction since 2003 to date. They have continued to wonder what their offence is.
Residents of Marshall Road, Ajili, Gargawa, and Gwaram towns view it as ironic that other roads near them have been reconstructed by the state government while theirs seem to be overlooked by the government they overwhelmingly cast their votes for.
Therefore, I wish to appeal to the governor to do something about these roads so as to bring succour to our people whose economic activities, livelihood and related developmental issues have been hampered by the deplorable state of the roads.
