A Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in Adamawa State, Abdullahi Musa has said it is a shame that some governors cannot do anything in their state without federal allocation from Abuja. Abdullahi said in a press interview in Yola that governors routinely wait for handouts from Abuja instead of sourcing their funds from within. He said Adamawa State in particular is an eldorado of agriculture, among other endowments, richly blessed that it can grow virtually every crop, in addition to vast cattle and poultry resources, all of which can be harnessed for radically improved internally generated revenue (IGR). He added that the leadership of Adamawa State should be ashamed to have to go to Abuja for money before they doing “We need to develop our capacity. We must develop our human capital. We must look inward. We make less than N1 billion internally generated revenue monthly. It’s a shame when we are so blessed with so many things,” he said. He added that Adamawa State has the busiest airport in the North outside Kano and would do well if it floats an airline. “Our people must see that this airport, the Yola Internation Airport, can generate much money. We have hydro resources, the Kiri Dam is there in Shelleng LGA. We have farmlands. Look at the rice revolution in Kebbi. We have rice belts here to grow more rice than Kebbi. We are not doing this. We sit down instead and wait for Buhari’s money every month,” the APC governorship aspirant said.
