The appointment, which has been approved by the State Governor Senator Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed, has elicited excitement and anticipation among tourism stakeholders.

In a letter conveying news of the appointment, the Secretary to the State Government Mohammed Baba, said Alhaji Bibi was selected for his “track record of sincerity, hard work, dedication, exemplary behavior and above all your wealth of experience and sense of responsibility.”

Bauchi State, also known as the Pearl of Tourism, is the home of the Yankari Game Reserve, one of Nigeria’s landmark tourism destinations and other tourist attractions.

The BSTB is charged with managing all such destinations across the North Eastern State.

Stakeholders have welcomed Gov Mohammed’s choice of Alhaji Bibi, stressing that it would stimulate a long anticipated revival of tourism in the State.

They see the appointment as part of Gov Mohammed’s policy of harnessing Bauchi’s tourism assets in his bid to grow and diversify the economy of the State.
