PDP tackles APC over Tambuwal’s construction of housing estate

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Sokoto state chapter has brushed aside allegations by the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state, that the plans of Governor Aminu Tambuwal to construct 342 housing estate would end up as another uncompleted project in the state.


The 342 estate is meant to house public officers and senior civil servants in the state last week.


Tambuwal, while receiving the report of a committee for the delivery of affordable houses to people of the state disclosed that the 342 Housing Scheme was for a broad spectrum of technocrats in the employ of the state.


The APC chairman in Sokoto, Isa Achida, had dismissed the proposed housing scheme as another of the projects that would remain uncompleted by the PDP administration in the state.


However, the PDP publicity secretary in the state Abdullahi Hausawa brushed aside the allegations describing it as in tandem with attitude of the opposition party in the state to always display “his usual stuff of unsubstantiated claims”.


Hausawa noted that But “it is a known fact that ever since their defeat at the governorship election in 2019 by the mighty 342 votes, the mere mention of the number always runs them mad.”

The PDP scribe noted that the claim by the APC chairman, “that none of Governor’s Tambuwal projects has ever been completed including the secondary school in Balle was laughable, because it shows that the chairman is yet to regain his sense after being inflicted with 342 dementia.”

Reeling out the projects executed and completed by the Tambuwal led PDP administration, Hausawa asked Achida “Where was he when the 60 offices and a library complex was awarded and completed by the Tambuwal led government at the Sokoto State University, resulting in the accreditation of most of its courses”?


“Where was he when Ibrahim Dasuki road was awarded and completed by this administration which was decorated with street lights?”


“Is the chairman blinded by his enmity to this administration to the extend, he cannot see the 12 brand new junior secondary schools built and fully equipped, including provision of ICT facilities across the three senatorial zones ”


“What about the diagnostic centres, the first of its kind in the entire north, built by this administration and equipped with state of the art facilities, including City scan, is he not aware of it?”


These were aside from many road projects cutting across the length and breadth of the state as well as other numerous projects that are too many to mention.


And has the chairman, forgotten soon that as the Commissioner of Home Affairs under the first tenure of Governor Aminu Waziri, he personally sought for the total overhauling of the State Fire Service, which was not only done but also led to the provision of new firefighting machines in the state.


We are sure the, APC treasurer in the state would testify to our giant stride in the area of scholarship, because his daughter was among the 200 students sponsored by the current administration to study medicine and other related courses abroad and we are proud of her, brilliant performance in her academic pursuit.
