Bauchi Speaker Speaks On Leaving APC

Speaker of the Bauchi State House of Assembly, Abubakar Suleiman, has revealed that he has no plan of defecting to the opposition party.

This has been the biggest insinuation trailing Suleiman in recent time. He made the clarification when leaders of the party paid him a visit at his home.

Pledging his loyalty to the All Progressive Congress (APC), Suleiman urged the leaders to ignore rumours that he was leaving the party.

Reacting to the controversy that followed the party’s campaign at the recent assembly by-election in Dass local government where he was accused of not speaking, he said there was an agreement for the majority leader of the party in the assembly to speak on behalf of APC lawmakers.

 

Suleiman said: “I assure you that I remain an APC member. Nobody can remove me from the party.

“Some people are saying I didn’t go to Dass for the election, but even my colleagues knew that I was ill on Friday to the level that I couldn’t attend Juma’at prayer. The majority leader and some members went there to represent us.

“Most of these rumours are being spread by people who rely on defamation, lies, and political brigandage to make money.

“Some of them couldn’t forget what transpired during our inauguration, which they see as disloyalty to the party. But APC lawmakers have forgiven each other and moved on. Why can’t they also forgive and work with us to rebuild our party? If only they care about the success of the party.”
