Governor of Bauchi State, Bala Mohammed has slammed the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, saying he poses danger to political stability in the state, Igbere TV reports.
The governor also blamed the APC National Chairman for the crisis rocking the state House of Assembly, in a statement made available to Igbere TV on Thursday.
Igbere TV recalls that Oshiomhole had demanded that a fresh proclamation be issued for the inauguration of the Bauchi State Assembly. He spoke after a meeting of the APC leadership with President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday, in Abuja.
Reacting to the call, however, the governor said the crisis rocking the Assembly had been resolved and since forgotten.
“The eight members led by the APC national chairman were part of the 17 who were sworn in last week on the floor of the assembly. All the 31 legislators are now members of one state assembly,” the governor said.
“As far as the Government and People of Bauchi State are concerned, the enforced disharmony is now history. Bauchi legislature is one united family. The issue of another proclamation Is ludicrous.
“It is clear that our legislators are not the problem, neither is the APC. Mr Oshiomhole is the problem. He is clear and present danger to political stability in Bauchi State. This explains why he excluded members of Edo State Assembly from the visit to the villa.
“The APC chairman should rethink his strategy as it is dead on arrival because he is dealing with political paper-tigers who were roundly defeated and soundly rejected by our people”, the statement added.
While appreciating President Buhari’s promise to intervene, Governor Mohammed said the president was “shortchanged with the relevant information by those who led the group for their personal interests and primordial dispositions.”
