A collapsed bridge linking many communities and about 90 per cent of farms in Michika local government area of Adamawa State has been rehabilitated by Hon. Bitrus Jebu, Governor Muhammadu Umaru Bindow’s aide.
Hon, Jebu, one of the serving commissioners in the Local Government Service Commission and staunch supporter of the governor, says the rehabilitation of the dilapidated Kwalyia bridge became necessary considering its economy importance to the entire people of Michika.
Jenu said the bridge is networking many communities, connecting thousands of farmers of the area and was neglected for many years, hence, the need to repair it in order to help the farmers access their farms easily.
“The gesture is inspired by the passion of my boss, the executive governor of our dear state, who I have been with since the days while he was a senator. His desire has been to be the true servant leader in wiping the tears of people.
“I can tell you that Governor Bindow is a people oriented governor, his policies are geared towards capital and developmental projects and we have to do same and follow suit in nation building doing. I want to assure you that this bridge will revive the socio economy activities of our people and they will remain eternally grateful to our working governor. “ Jebu said
One of the local farmers and a settler in Kwalyia, Tumba Kwada, who was seen in tears of joy, said one of their major problems has been taken away, lamenting that before now they have been looking for assistance from other political office holders both at the federal, state and local government levels, to help in repairing the valuable bridge.
Kwada thanked Governor Bindow for the recent appointment of Bitrus as Michika is beginning to feel the impact of his government through his efforts in making sure that the bridge is reconstructed.
Jebu further called on the people to give maximum support to the present administration led by Governor Bindow as he makes efforts to change the story of inhabitants of Michika local government area.
