On Monday, Dr. Umar Faruq Umar, Emir of Daura, has claimed that the people from the hometown of President Muhammadu Buhari are hungry and not getting enough from the Federal Government.
Umar has made the claim when he received the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Dr. Audu Ogbeh at his Daura palace.
He said: “Buhari by his nature will not influence the siting of any projects in Daura. But his Ministers who benefitted from his appointment should reciprocate by bringing developmental projects to Daura, his birthplace.
“It is a call to duty for the Ministers to make provision in their Ministry’s budget of ensuring that Daura benefitted immensely from Buhari administration. “If the Ministers failed to site any projects to Daura, they have betrayed the President and people of Daura.
“Like the Rice production in Kebbi State. Katsina has prospects in rice production and irrigation farming.
“Katsina has dams and irrigation sites like Sabke, Jibia, Zobe, Daberan, Mai Ruwa dams and if utilized and reciprocated has potentials of feeding the state and it’s neighbours.
“I urge you to go back, look inwards and search for what, how you can assist people of Daura. Daura is faced with the absence of projects for its development and its people are hungry and need federal government assistance.”
