The All Progressives Congress in Bauchi State has been condemned as stakeholders including two governorship aspirants alleged that the party does not have a governorship candidate.
The aspirants dismissed claims that a primary election was conducted in which a winner emerged.
The two governorship aspirants, Captain Bala Jibril and a former Minister of Police Affairs, Dr. Ibrahim Lame, among others, while briefing newsmen in Abuja, insisted that there was no reason for the leadership of the party and President Muhammadu Buhari to recognise Governor Mohammed Abubakar as the party’s governorship candidate.
They further called on President Buhari not to succumb to pressure and accept the incumbent governor as the APC candidate, the stakeholders pointed out that the governor was planning to take some Emirs and about 70 others to Abuja for his endorsement.
According to them, “as it stands in Bauchi, 90 percent of the indigenes will reject the re-election of the governor in 2019.”
