In every human society, there exist people with extraordinary blessings. Whatever they do reflects on the society in good shape. Such people are rare in this contemporary world, hence it takes a society long time to have them.
Bauchi state and Nigeria at large is lucky to have one of these people, among whom Malam Isah Yuguda. He was first elected governor of Bauchi state in 2007, on the platform of the All Nigerian People’s Party. Yuguda was re-elected governor in 2011.
He was two term minister of aviation and transportation. Yuguda does his work efficiently and effectively to the best of his ability. He is a true hero of democracy, during his tenure as a governor, Yuguda ensured dividends of democracy to every nook and cranny of Bauchi state. His passion for his people is extraordinary. During his tenure Bauchi became one of the most peaceful and enjoyable states in the country.
The APC which came to power after the 2015 general election has different challenges to the extent some view the party as the root cause of challenges affecting Nigerians. But as it is now, the APC is taking lead in receiving decampees from other political parties, including Yuguda.
For a party to have good manifestos and to be well recognised, it needs good and well oriented politicians like Yuguda who has international and national connections and his ability to turn things positively, is what makes him different.
If not Yuguda then who can play politics at this dangerous stage and make the people truly believe that the APC is a helping hand to them? If not him, from the North-east, who has the capacity to run party affairs when election close? Yuguda fits in, let him serve, he is the best at the moment. We hope the pendulum will swing towards him!
