Buhari Did Not Leave Tinubu-Shetima Presidential Rally In Bauchi Angrily – APC

The Bauchi Gubernatorial Campaign Council of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has denied unsubstantiated reports making the rounds suggesting that President Muhammadu Buhari left the venue of the party’s presidential campaign rally in the state gutted following an electric fault inhibited proper functioning of the microphone used at the event.

The Campaign Council, again, insisted that there was no pandemonium recorded during the rally.

Unconfirmed media reports late evening yesterday indicated that there was a stampede and confusion at the APC’s Presidential Campaign Rally held at the Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Stadium in Bauchi forcing President Muhammadu Buhari to leave angrily.

Salisu Ahmad, Director, of Media and Publicity Bauchi APC Gubernatorial Campaign Council, Salisu Ahmad said this in an exclusive interview with journalists in his office in Bauchi on Tuesday.

He said President Buhari left the venue of the campaign happily after performing all designated ceremonial duties that he was supposed to do at the event.

“President Muhammadu Buhari smilingly gave APC flag to the party’s Governorship candidate Sadique Baba Abubakar. He also raised his hand that of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to a yelling crowd of supporters.

“We took the incident of microphone failure that impedes the President from speaking loudly to the hearing of everybody as a natural electrical failure that could be recorded anywhere in the world. Therefore, to us, it was not a prearranged scenario to mar our campaign.

“Postmortem findings revealed that vehicles overmatched the cables, thus causing damage to it.

“it was evident to anybody who attended the event that Buhari left waving hands to the cheering crowds who turn out en mass to show solidarity to the party’s Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, his running mate, Kashim Shetima and Bauchi Governorship candidate, Sadique Baba Abubakar,” he said.

Salisu said the mammoth crowd that turned up for the rally is one that goes down in history books as the most populous, adding that it shows the pedigree of acceptance of APC among people of the state who over the years proved to Nigerians that they are true ‘Buharists.’

He called on other political parties in the state to ensure peaceful electioneering campaigns and polls in the best interest of citizens.
