Potiskum: We Are Not Going to Take it Anymore!

Potiskum: We Are Not Going to Take it Anymore!

The airport in Potiskum has been in Existence since the 1950s, now it is slowly dying while they waste resources on building an unusable cargo airport in Damaturu, and a misguided Aerodrome in Wachakal- (even the town’s name gives the feeling of an unorganized effort🤫).

The Police Training school has been earmarked for Nangere, (outskirts of Potiskum). Now they want to move it to another ‘Wachakal’ – probably the work of the current Senate President.

The proposed new Railway line has been earmarked to pass through Potiskum, from Gombe to Gashua; now they want to deny Potiskum, and move the line through Damaturu. (Imagine a railway line built for a state Government, instead of a vibrant and world famous cattle market!).

And yet, we are busy fighting over inanities in Zone B, while the rest of Yobe enjoys the powers of their political office holders!

With all our education, our voting strength and some of the most enlightened representation on the national stage, Bukar Abba has successfully condemned and stunted our growth with his divide and rule tactics that persists till today.

Must the fortunes of Potiskum always mirror the fortunes of the unlucky, or the emasculated, or the denied?

We must stand as one, so that no one can take us for granted!!

Enough is enough.
