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