Bauchi state governor Bala Mohammed described the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, as a danger to the political stability of the state.
In a statement released to journalists Thursday by his spokesman, Ladan Salihu, the governor stated that Oshiomhole is causing a crisis in the Assembly of the State Assembly.
Governor Bala Mohammed also noted that the crisis that shook the Assembly had been resolved and that all elected members had sworn.
“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,” he said.
Speaking further, the governor stated that President Muhammadu Buhari was shortchanged with the relevant information over the crisis.
“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,” the statement added.
“It is clear that our legislators are not the problem, neither is the APC. Mr Oshiomhole is the problem. He is a 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.”
