The Bauchi State Governor Bala Mohammed on Tuesday while receiving members of Dass/Tafawa Balewa/Bogoro Constituency on a solidarity visit to him in Bauchi debunked all allegations leveled against him by the former Speaker House of Representatives, Mr. Yakubu Dogara, describing them as fabricated lies.
The Governor was quoted saying, “It is a very regrettable development, it is unfortunate because he is a young man that we so much love and appreciate, including me. Even now I don’t harbor any malice against him,” Mohammed said.
“But he came to show his true colors as a pretender, as a fabricator of lies against my person, who has helped him to reconnect and recapture his mandate as a member of the House of Reps. after being expelled by my adversary, the former Governor.”
The Governor also assured leaders of the PDP in Nigeria that Bauchi remains “intact” for the party. The former Speaker had accused Governor Mohammed of diverting an N4.6billion loan, inflating contracts sums, and mismanagement of local government funds, among other claims, as grounds for his defection to the APC from the PDP.
