The Chairman of Bassa Local Government Area, in Plateau State, Mr. David Racha, has praised the administration of the out-going President Goodluck Jonathan and Governor Jonah Jang on the transformation programme of their administrations in the areas of infrastructure, human capacity-building, saying that Nigeria had profited from them.
He was of the view that politicians were becoming more responsible to their constituency, in this dispensation, by giving back to the society that voted them into power.
Although the duo recognised that the change in power reflected a true democratic situation, Racha called on Nigerians who were clamouring for change to count their blessings and give credit to Jonathan and Jang for bringing the much needed gains of democracy to all, especially in the areas of agriculture, industrialisation and extensive construction of roads.
He also hailed Jang for paying the salary of workers.
“If for any reason a local government employee is being owned salary, then you should know that he or she is having issues with biometrics data capturing, Racha said.”
Racha, who celebrated his one year in office, some weeks before the just concluded general election, reeled out his record of achievements.
However, Racha emphasised that Jonathan would now be vindicated from his statements on tackling the Boko Haram insurgency, as he had always said the security challenges would not be solved overnight as President-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari agrees.
