Bauchi: Dogara, Gov Abubakar’s Supporters Clash At APC Secretariat
A mild drama ensued at the national secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) yesterday when youths who claimed they came from Bauchi State stormed the premises in protest for and against the Bauchi State governor.
Bauchi State governor was expected at the National Secretariat along with the Bauchi State APC chairman, but only the state chairman came alongside other party executives.
The protest started as soon as the state chairman arrived the party secretariat. One Galadima Abba Ittas who claimed to be a youth leader led other fierce looking thugs chanting ‘bamu so bama so’ meaning “we don’t want; we don’t want.”
Speaking to journalists Galadima said they are at the party secretariat to draw the attention of the party on the imminent collapse of the party in the state due to poor handling of affairs by the state governor and the state chairman.
Galadima added, “Bauchi State governor, Mohammed Abubakar, has failed, he cannot pay salary of workers and unable to pay pensioners. Most of his appointments are PDP members while the APC appointees are being removed, we are calling on the national leadership to act fast by intervening in order to save Bauchi State from this debacle”.
However, in what looked like a turn of event, some of the thugs who were initially against the Bauchi State governor suddenly turned his support and started chanting, Bauchi sai Barrister.
The atmosphere became charged as the chant of “sai Barrister” overshadowed the protest against him that started initially.
Investigation however revealed that some of the youths were sponsored to cause the governor embarrassment but he was not at the secretariat.
