Governor Isa Yuguda of Bauchi State has said that the tenets of democracy must be upheld by the actors in the political system for its sustainability.

Yuguda said the sustainability included rule of law, accountability, transparency and dividends of democracy.

Speaking at the opening of 2012 Press Week Lecture of the Nigeria Union of Journalist (NUJ), Oyo State Council, titled: ‘Good Governance as a Panacea to a Sustainable Democracy: Bauchi State Example’, held at Dapo Aderogba Hall, Iyaganku Press Centre, the governor reiterated his irrevocable commitment to good governance and sustainable democracy through provision of dividends of democracy to the generality of the people of the state.

Yuguda, who was represented by the state Head of Service, Abdon Dalla Gin, maintained that his government would continue to uphold transparency, accountability and rule of law to ensure good governance.

He said the vision of his administration was to “aspire to become one of the four leading states in the country through the sustainable development of both urban and rural areas, provision of equal opportunity for all and entrenchment of good governance for the benefit of the people.”

Commenting on the recent disturbances in the Northern part of the country occasioned by the activities of Boko Haram sect, he said: “Bauchi State is not under siege whatsoever, come to Bauchi, you will sleep and snore.”

He noted that despite isolated cases of violence in the North East, Bauchi is peaceful, saying the state is not a no-go area, contrary to reports in the media.

He however, called for judicious use of resources by all tiers of government for the common good of the governed.
