Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed, has narrated how his Chief of Staff, Ladan Salihu, opened the warehouse which stores COVID-19 palliatives in the state for hoodlums.
The governor explained that his CoS flung the doors of the warehouse opened when hoodlums attempted a raid on the storage facility.
Mohammed, who made this known on his verified Twitter handle, said the hoodlums were disappointed when they saw an empty warehouse, adding that the foodstuffs were distributed between May and August.
The governor wrote:
Today, hoodlums attempted a raid on the COVID-19 palliatives warehouse in Bauchi State. My Chief of Staff was informed and he ordered the warehouse to be opened.
They saw it was empty, and they turned back. And that’s because we shared everything to beneficiaries as and when due.
For accountability, when we started distribution months ago, I ensured to set up a high powered committee that included myself.
The core of my mandate remains the crucial drive to give Bauchi State citizens a better prospect and more excellent opportunity for a prosperous life. We are doing this, and we will continue to do more.
I am excited to re-emphasise that between May and August this year, my administration launched multiple rounds of distribution of #COVID19 palliatives to beneficiaries across Bauchi State.
