Our govt won’t distribute goats as empowerment, NNPP chides Bauchi gov
Chairman of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) in Bauchi, Sani Shehu has mocked the empowerment programme of Bauchi State governor, Bala Mohammed, saying that the days of free distribution of goats as empowerment to youth and women would soon be over.
The Chairman was speaking at a rally in Bauchi on Thursday where the party was receiving 50,000 decampees from nine political parties.
He expressed optimism that his party’s candidate, Senator Halliru Jika will dethrone incumbent Governor Bala Mohammed from power in 2023.
Shehu described the Bauchi NNPP gubernatorial candidate as more youthful than the incumbent governor.
He said that the days of free distribution of goats as empowerment to youth and women by the present administration in Bauchi would soon be over.
In his speech, the NNPP governorship candidate, Senator Halliru Dauda Jika assured the people that they would soon be salvaged from the shackles of abject poverty, disease and ignorance by his administration.
Jika lambasted some political parties for giving a measure of salt or N1,000 to buy votes during elections, while also urging youths and women to shun politicians who come to them with such gifts.
