Following incessant clashes with farmers, some Fulani groups in Bauchi have demanded that the government give them four per cent of the total land area of the state.
The request was made by the conglomerate of Fulani socio-cultural Associations known as Daddo Pulaku, Bauchi state.
This is contained in a memorandum submitted by the group to the Administrative Committee of Inquiry into Land Disputes, Vanguard reports.
According to them, the government should ensure the full implementation of the castle routes law of Bauchi state, 2018 as contained in the passed bill.
It said the bill enforced the non-cultivation of both sides of all major roads in the state by 30 meters from the drains.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that Bauchi State Primary HealthCare Development Agency (PHCDA) has revealed that COVID-19 patients in the state are being treated like kings.
According to Dr Rilwanu Mohammed, executive chairman of the agency, the state government spends N1,500 per single meal for COVID-19 patients on admission in the state, News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.
He said the state governor, Bala Mohammad, gave the directives in order to ensure that all the COVID-19 patients in the state were well fed.
“It was the state governor that ordered us that we should put N1,500 per single meal in a day.
“That is, N1,500 meal during breakfast, the same amount for lunch as well as dinner because he doesn’t want anybody in isolation to suffer or complain so that we won’t have any riot like in some other states.
“This brings the total amount of money on meal per day to N4,500 on a single patient,” Mohammed said.
Going further, the PHCDA boss said some people were calling to be taken to an isolation centre even though they were hale and hearty.
“Recently, three people called me and they were asking that they wanted to be admitted in isolation centre.
“One of them was from Giade local government area of the state and because we recently discharged a lot of people from that area, obviously they had given them information on how they were taken care of.
“All these people were pleading with me to come and pick them up and take them to an isolation centre, they said they wanted to enjoy the chicken, eggs, fried potatoes and all the goodies our patients are having while in isolation,” he said.
