Bauchi state Governor Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed who is also the Northern Vice-Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) 2023 Presidential Campaign Council has said that Bauchi has traditionally been a Buharist state.
The governor said this during the flag-off ceremony of the Kolmani Integrated Project Development at the boundaries of Bauchi-Gombe.
Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday performed the official ground-breaking ceremony of the Oil Prospecting Lease (OPLs) 809 and 810 at the Kolmani River II Well.
“We thank you most sincerely. We are deeply indebted to you. Bauchi state [is] your own. You know this is a state where everybody is a Buharist,” Bala said while delivering a speech at the event.
Governor Bala recently threatened to leave the PDP presidential campaign over anti-party activities targeted at him.
Also, he made what appeared to be a joke about the crisis in the PDP by acknowledging the “G5 and the G1″, adding that the people of Bauchi state are grateful for the support of the president.
“Mr President, this project is going to be one of your most important legacies. It will not only assist the country in generating more revenue, but it will also create jobs, fight poverty and also bring national integration” he added.
