The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Bauchi State has said the people resolved to vote out ex-Governor Mohammed Abubakar, of the All Progressives Congress (APC), for non performance.

State party Chairman Hamza Koshe Akuyam, who spoke  during a media chat organised by Governor Bala Mohammed to mark his 100 days in office at the weekend,  said besides non performance , the former governor was no indigene.

The PDP  chairman added that non-imposition of a candidate allowed delegates to  choose freely among aspirants contesting the party’s ticket in the state.

He said the party’s free and fair primaries led to the election of Mohammed as flag bearer.

Akuyam said the ability of PDP to select a credible candidate was also a factor.

“Now, the people of Bauchi know that there is a difference between a tenant and the landlord. A tenant does not repair the house he is renting. The former governor was a tenant, so, he could not work for the progress of Bauchi because he was a tenant, so we brought in the son of the soil and drove him out so that the people of Bauchi will have relief,” he said.

Speaking on the election of Mohammed as flag bearer, he said: “The first thing we did was we allowed delegates to freely choose among the contestants; the PDP did not impose any candidate …so the people were able to vote Bala Mohammed to be the candidate … going by his charisma and experience in politics.”

Akuyam added  that the determination of Mohammed   made it easy to vote out the former governor.

The chairman noted that the PDP-led government was  celebrating the governopr’s 100 days in office because the people had seen what the governor had been doing…

He said PDP was highly impressed that Mohammed had not disappointed.

Akuyam noted that Abubakar was the first governor to lose election after serving just a tenure in the history of Bauchi.
