The governor of Bauchi, Bala Mohammed, has described the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, as a danger to the political stability of the state.
The governor said this in a statement on Thursday, August 8, blaming Oshiomhole for the crisis rocking the state House of Assembly.
The Cable reports that in the statement released by Mohammed’s spokesperson, Ladan Salihu, the governor said the crisis rocking the Assembly had been resolved and forgotten.
“The eight members led by the APC national chairman were part of the 17 who were sworn in last week on the floor of the assembly. All the 31 legislators are now members of one state Assembly,” the governor said.
Mohammed commended Muhammadu Buhari for his promise to intervene adding that the president was not given the right information.
“As far as the government and people of Bauchi state are concerned, the enforced disharmony is now history. Bauchi legislature is one united family. The issue of another proclamation is ludicrous.
“It is clear that our legislators are not the problem, neither is the APC. Mr Oshiomhole is the problem. He is clear and present danger to political stability in Bauchi state. This explains why he excluded members of Edo state Assembly from the visit to the villa.
“The APC chairman should rethink his strategy as it is dead on arrival because he is dealing with political paper-tigers who were roundly defeated and soundly rejected by our people,” the statement said.
