Thanks, Gov. Bala Mohammed

Dear Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi state, on behalf of the good people of Misau local government area, we express our profound gratitude for the recent approval of the reconstruction of two major roads in our local government area.

The roads are from Kari town of Darazo local government area to A.D Rufa’i College of Education, Legal and General Studies Misau and from Misau General Hospital to Bayawo town. These roads play significant role in lives of many people of Misau, Darazo and Giade local government areas. The reconstruction of these roads have been abandoned  for many years.

Misau local government area is among the biggest in Bauchi state with largest the mineral deposits which include: cassiterite (tin ore), columbite, gypsum, wolfram, coal, limestone, iron ore, etc.

It is also one of the local government areas with arable land that produces in large commercial quantity crops like wheat, sorghum, rice, millet, cowpea, groundnut, gum arabic, sorrel (zobo fruits), onions, tomatoes, pepper, cotton, livestock, maize, kenaf, among many others.

Your Excellency, it was with great pleasure that we received the news of the reconstruction of these roads by your administration. The roads will reduce the level of hardship of commuters, especially farmers.

The reconstruction of these roads will be of tremendous benefit to the people of MIsau, Darazo, Giade and Shira local government areas, among many others. This is because it will also help in boosting economic activities of these areas.
