The Peoples Democratic Party PDP in Bauchi State has said that Governor Senator Bala Mohammed didn’t dump his Deputy Senator Baba Tela.
Rather, the party said, the two are working together in harmony to ensure the success of the party in 2023 general election.
The State Publicity Secretary of the PDP Yayanuwa Zainabari said this today Tuesday in his reaction to a report that said Governor Bala has dumped Baba Tela and picked Auwal Jatau as his running mate.
He said the deputy gubernatorial candidate of the party Jatau was quoted out of context, as there was no where in the story where he said the governor has dumped his deputy.
“It’s the imagination of reporters and mischief from political actors, Zainabari said.
He said instead of political actors in the state to fan the embers of discord between the two they should channel their energy towards supporting the present administration to continue the ongoing good work in the areas of infrastructural development, empowerment and unity amongst the various interests in the state.
The PDP Spokesman said the issue of changing the deputy governor in 2023 election was a decisions reached by the governor and stakeholders from the Bauchi North Senatorial district, and the incumbent Deputy Governor is working enjoying the cordial relationship existing between him and the Governor.
He said, “So heating the polity was unnecessary and uncalled for. People are trying to create confusion where there shouldn’t be. It’s still the same family, the governor and his deputy are in good terms, and they talk regularly, and sometimes take decisions together.
“So, let’s be fair to the two political leaders that we have and stop trying to create confusion amongst them.”
Zainabari said “the new deputy gubernatorial candidate Auwal Jatau will be unveiled when we started campaign “
