Niger Governor, Abubakar Sani Bello has blamed his predecessor, Dr Muazu Babaginda Aliyu for the state of infrastructure across the state.
Bello spoke in a chat with newsmen on Wednesday in Minna, the state capital.
He lamented that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) administration failed to invest in projects despite huge funds the state received.
Citing the hospital in Nasko, Magama local government, built by the past regime, Bello stated that the N600 million facility was unnecessary.
He stressed that what the town required was a standard primary healthcare centre that would meet the need of the people.
“The cost of that hospital now with Naira at N350 to the Dollar is equivalent to N2 billion but what is most disheartening is that the major part of the hospital is now been inhabited by goats and other domestic animals,” Bello said.
Bello recalled that he was very careful not to make promises to the people in 2015, “because that time we had an idea of the challenges, we had an the idea of the infrastructural gap, we had an idea of all the project that were abandoned.
“But we didn’t get the full information on debt of problems until we were sworn in so that made it difficult for us to make promises. We knew if we had promised heaven and earth, we will be in problems”.
