I 100% agree. It is not a priority in my state for now. Wachakal, over 200km away from the capital? No! Cargo airport in Damaturu, then airport in Wachakal? Laughable, while Maiduguri airport is 100km away. It’s absurd that our priorities are to kick back interests for the politicians and not what’s best for the masses. What about education, agriculture and the health sectors? Why can’t we invest in those areas rather than these so-called airports, please? May God help us from this menace.
Wow! This is very great sir. This is another excellent one, probably the best. For a long time, I thought I was the only person who strongly believed that there’s a very close and positive correlation with what these bandits in government do and the insecurities in this poor country. I repeat and say also that, ‘The worst of the kidnappings and the blood shades are clear and direct outcomes of our leaders’ madness in terms of selfishness and greed.’ They’re monsters who are here only to breed armies of “Frankensteins” that are hunting us everywhere these days. May you be rewarded for this, sir.

May Allah increase you in knowledge and wisdom but I pity many of our people who always judge with sentiment, refusing to see and accept the truth because they will attack you.
Found this very relevant and important! May Allah increase you in knowledge.
Mujaheed Abdullahi Muhammed
Apt and succinct.
All the best sir.

I hope the so-called ‘yan kishin jiha (those who claim to love the state) will read this piece. Dr Hassan Gimba, may Allah reward you with the best.
Aliyu Muhammad Habib
The truth has been spoken.

You’re on point, sir.
To tell the truth and die, refuse to tell the truth and also die. l rather tell the truth and die. Thank you Dr.
Wachakal airport is another scam under way. That area is known for its agricultural/ irrigation values, if the government really wants Wachakal to develop, it should be able to bring rice milling, a tomato factory and so on. The farmers there are not getting any kind of support from any government and the Senate president is aware of this issue.

It is always good to tell the truth. The write up focused on priority and the impacts to the society. There is nothing like tribalism and sectionalism.
Even the writer of this piece is part of the problem, if he could remember what IBB started as a military junta, how come he forgot all the efforts made by Jonathan’s democratic administration in establishing almajiri schools in the same northern Nigeria?
Odili Odogwu, write your own and mention Jonathan’s and no idiot will call/see it in a negative way, the way you call/see IBB’s. In essence, you just displayed how bigoted you are. I, for instance, don’t like Jonathan but that doesn’t stop me from commending his initiative about the almajiris regardless of the motive.

You did well…. well done.
What six billion naira can do for my state, by Hassan Gimba (08/11/2021)
What an intelligent submission. I am impressed with the writing skills sir.
Ma shaa Allah, good effort.
Well done, Mr #hassanGimba
Muhammad Abubakar Gujba
Well done, sir . More ink to your pen.
Muhammad Jajere Babayo
Intelligent submission… The last paragraph is wind up.
Avahi Ojo SJafar
We Nigerians are professionals in terms of policy making, but we are very poor in terms of implementation.
So….importantly, it turns out that the title should be ‘what 5.5billion naira can do for my state’..I enjoyed it.

Well written and great ideas.

I concur with you.
Good, may those in charge take note.
Very good and excellent writing, Yes indeed, sir, Yobe is growing slowly, eventually the state can reach the level of mainstream states in Nigeria. Many more ink to your pen.
Truth is one. Its refusal signals loss. Thank you.
, this is what’s really happening, sir.
I am beginning to think that you are not just a journalist sir…..More ink to your pen.
Thank you sir, just thanks a lot.
Truth is known to everyone, except they deny it.
Honestly I benefited very much from the write-up. It gives me more courage, determination. More ink in your golden pen, sir.
True write up. May almighty God deliver Nigeria from the hand of wicked enemies.
Well said. May Allah fulfil your dreams.
Six billion? Possibly a power station, three medium sized industries employing 300 each, five secondary level multi bed hospitals, a state university and a polytechnic.
Gradually, everything will become history. So, continue doing the right thing.
Aptly written. May God open more ways for you.
If what they did is their best, I am disappointed with that best.
The worst part is the what are they benefiting?
An excellent write up! The eRat phenomenon is an honest discovery of the present surroundings.
More light to your Golden lamp, sir.
You have done well.
Aptly written. May God open more ways for you.
