Minister of State for Aviation, Hadi Sirika's village in Katsina reportedly have no borehole; children trek 3-4km to fetch water

Facebook user, Sani Mannir took to the social media platform to call on the current Minister of State for Aviation, Senator Hadi Sirika, to provide water boreholes for his people in Sirika, Katsina State. Read his post below:
"I have been flying the Katsina to Daura roads in the last 45 years but I have never known where Sirika is till last two weeks when my car broke down on my way to Daura.
The car stopped at a village between Shargalle and Kayawa along Katsina /Daura roads. While waiting for a mechanic to come, I decided to know the name of the place. So I asked a passer by and he told me this is Sirika. I couldn't believe my eyes because I expected to see a very big and organized village. I went further to ask the if he knows Min Hadi Sirika he said yes and even showed me a mud house belonging to an elder brother of the Minister who is the village head. I asked again for the Minister's house and the person told he doesn't have a house in Sirika. His house is at Shargalle, which happens to be a larger village. 
It was then that a bare footed boy pushing a wheel barrow containing jerry Cans of water came our way. I asked the boy where he fetched the water from? He mentioned a place which I can not remember but said it is about 3-4 km away.
It was then that I decided to do this post in order to call on the Minister to come to the aid of his people by sinking a bore hole for them. Mr Minister please give your people life by giving them water. Let them know that their son is a Minster."

This is the same story with all our politicians. As long as they are living comfortably, they don't really care.

This is a STUPID post. How much does the minister earn? This is how people in government are pushed to steal just to respond to undue expectations. It is the responsibility of the government to provide social amenities to the people and not the minister. Hadi Sirika's responsibility is to improve the aviation ministry and industry. We should stop this bullshit.

This is a great post by Sani Mannir.
The level of poverty in the North is appalling and it is even more horrifying to see that the Northern elite are very comfortable with it.
People should no longer keep silent, people should begin to call them out as Mr. Sani just did.
Poverty and ignorance in any part of Nigeria pushes every part of Nigeria backward.

While i understand the writer's point of view, it is thinking like this that makes public officials corrupt. Being a Minister doesn't mean he has access to a pot of money. Now its borehole, next tarred roads, electricity, etc. His portfolio is aviation so anything he does for the community will be from his personal finance, i don't know how much Ministers earn but all these high expectations when people are in govt makes them susceptible to corruption

This is the wisdom of the Abokis. 95percent of oil well in Nigeria is owed by the northerners. The same northerner has rule this country most and North Is the poorest region globally. Infact Aboki no get sense. They are senseless.

The hausas/fulanis are their worse enemies. They have held the mantle of rulership for so many years in this country, yet nothing tangible to show . Their people are the poorest and suffer most. All the TRILLIONS of naira their corrupt politicians stole, they cant give accessible water supply, no electricity, no good schools, hospitals, roads and other amenities for their people to enjoy. Yet these peasants still WORSHIP them. Big Shame

So the man should use Aviation money to provide water for them. Envy at work.

naija dj said...

So you guys expect the honourable minister's village to be the only village in the area with a borehole when others don't, just because he is a minister? I've never understood this type of reasoning from Nigerians?! The man in there to run the aviation ministry. He is not there to use his influence to get a borehole or water project located in his village! That's the responsibility of the state government or the appropriate federal ministry. Why do we have a culture in Nigeria that implicitly encourages corruption?

You are stingy and wicked.

Being a minister doesn't mean he has to concentrate on his people alone,in a bid to do what he's being asked don't forget he has a fulfillment to all Nigerians. If he does people's wishes,people would come for him saying he developed his town/village leaving behind others,before he became a minister weren't his people surviving? He's minister of aviation and he's office is not responsible for the borehole!

On the premise that the subject post is true, I expected Sani Mannir to, first of all, ask the cart pusher who is the Local Government Councillor representing the community and what he has done through the local government authority and by extension the state government. Why did Mr. Sani decended on the Hon. Minister who, in official terms, has "secondary obligation" in this matter? Does Mr. Sani has political score to sattle with the Minister? May God bless us with good intentions, amen.

That's the duty of state government, ministry in charge of water resources, their house of rep members and senators. If the minister would do that, it would be charity. Moreover, he's in charge of Aviation not water resources. .

Please direct to the state government and Senators representing your state.

Sirika is a small place not even up to a village which is under Shargalle village, the population their i think will not be more than 1500, what Hadi sirika did was he drilled a borehole with a large tank and about 30 taps in shargalle which is a larger village and that is where he grew up as his father was the head of the village (now his brother). We thank God for this project he did which is normal he can even do it from his own pocket.
