The governor of Bauchi, Bala Mohammed, has likened Adams Oshiomhole, the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), as a danger to the political stability of the state. Saying this in a statement on Thursday, the governor blamed Oshiomhole for the crisis been experienced in the state House of Assembly. The Cable reported 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 praised Muhammadu Buhari for his promise to intervene stating that the president was misinformed. “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.
At the time of the report, Simon Egbebulem, the spokesperson for Oshiomhole, was yet to react to the allegation. Legit.ng earlier reported that Oshiomhole, on Wednesday, August 7, promised that the party will not disappoint Nigerians. Oshiomhole said this after a meeting between President Muhammadu Buhari and the National Working Committee (NWC) in Aso Rock.
