“When Sen. Bala Mohammed came on board he met a state that was
divided and segregated society like
“The state was polaried by ethnicity, balkanized by religion and was fractured by political insensitivity and leadership
“The outlawed sara suka ran the state berserk. Consequentially, developmental projects were shelved. Pensioners who were derogatory called deadwood by previous administration were owed gratuities and pensions. Worse still education which is the bedrock of national development was utterly neglected. Our roads have become death traps, hospitals lack medical facilities, industries have packed up, electricity supply was absent in many communities and were it exists it is epileptic.”
