The Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed, on Friday dismissed rumours that he was on the verge of dumping the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC).
Mohammed, who bared his mind on the matter in a statement issued by his Senior Special Assistant on Media, Mukhtar Gidado, shrugged off insinuations that he was one of the three PDP governors negotiating to join the ruling party.
The statement read: “We wish to state that the story is a disingenuous speculation driven by a clear marketing urge, to feed the appetites of readers whose hunger for salacious political news has been fueled by the movement of the Ebonyi State Governor, His Excellency, Engr. Dave Umahi, to the APC and the spate of political alignments and realignments in the country.
“We wish to state that His Excellency, Senator Bala Mohammed has never contemplated leaving the PDP, let alone joining the APC.
“Rather, he is presently preoccupied with fulfilling those campaign promises, on the basis of which the good people of Bauchi State supported him to defeat an incumbent administration.”
