Bauchi governor will not be distracted by antics of NASS members - APC stalwart
By Rita Michael, Bauchi
All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain in Bauchi State, Alhaji Armaya'u Yahaya, has said that Governor Mohammed Abubakar would not be distracted by the antics of National Assembly members.
Yahaya, who spoke in Bauchi, acussed some of the National Assembly members from the state of campaigning against the leadership of Governor Abubakar because he refused to dance to the tune of their music.
He said, "Governor Abubakar will never be distracted by the antics of detractors from the
National Assembly but has gone far in fulfilling promises made to the people. His allegiance is
to the millions of people of Bauchi State who voted for him with the belief that God will give
him the mandate to deliver.
"There are some individuals who thought that governor Abubakar will work according to their whims
and caprices, but he showed them that he did not become the governor to serve individuals but
to serve the state and its people."
According to him, "the governor stated it clearly during his campaign that he was coming into a
covenant with the people of Bauchi State and that he would work for their welfare.
"So, that is why these individuals (Abuja politicians) are fighting him because they thought he was going
to dance to their tunes and do their biddings, which he refused to.
“Though there are issues with some of our members at the National Assembly, Mohammed Abubakar is
not perturbed. He is always reaching out to them, that is the Speaker of House of Representatives, Yakubu
Dogara, and others so that they can work together for our people and leave any other thing for posterity to judge."
The APC stalwart said that despite paucity of funds as a result of monthly allocations from Federal Government,
he was keeping his words on prompt payment of salaries and at the sametime executing capital projects in all
sectors of the economy.
He said that the governor was executing his policies based on what the people of the state want, not
what some few individuals or the national assembly members from the state will dictate. What they failed
to understand is that Governor Abubakar is a very simple person who always accepts advice.
'If they are sincere, they should draw his attention to his mistakes and offer advice, not making inciting statements
