Fu­lani task Buhari on in­fra­struc­ture in north

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Bashir Li­man, Jos

The Fu­lani so­cio­cul­tural group, Gan Al­lah Fu­lani De­vel­op­ment As­so­ci­a­tion of Nige­ria, has called on Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari to ad­dress the in­fras­truc­tural deficit in the north.

The chair­man of the group, Saleh Ba­yari made the call week­end in Jos while be­ing con­ferred with the ti­tle of Garkuwan Matasan Arewa by the North­ern Stu­dents As­sem­bly of Nige­ria.

Ba­yari, a former na­tional sec­re­tary of Miyetti Al­lah Cat­tle Breed­ers As­so­ci­a­tion of Nige­ria, urged Buhari to ini­ti­ate “good projects” in the re­gion.

He said un­like peo­ple from some other parts of the coun­try, north­ern­ers had never threat­ened the fed­eral gov­ern­ment with cri­sis.

He said: “If you go to south­ern Nige­ria like Ibadan you would see the road con­struc­tion go­ing on there, go and see Se­cond Niger Bridge in As­aba, be­cause they asked Buhari to do it for them, but here in the North we don’t do that.”
