rally organised to receive 18 prominent PDP members in the state who
had defected to APC.
According to him, “they are broke, they are hungry and want to come back to steal.

“We want to assure you that we will not fail you and will
never fail you. Bauchi is our traditional state we come to rest not to
” I was here in 2015 and saw what politicians called mammoth crowd, that is crowd that cannot be counted,” he stressed.
Ali Ndume, had earlier described PDP administration in the last 16
years as Kleptocracy who abused their leadership positions to acquire
wealth to extend their power.
Ndume, who is also the Campaign
Director General Buhari/Osinbajo for North East, said that Buhari has
fulfilled the promises he made in 2015 on security, economic
diversification and war against corruption.
“Nigerians are today
left with two options to either choose those who have the country at
heart or those who will destroy the country,” he asserted.
Muhammadu Badaru of Jigawa in a goodwill message called on the people of
Bauchi to cast 2.5 million votes for Buhari as against the over 1
millions votes during 2015 polls.
Badaru recalled that Buhari
took over the administration when 27 states of the 36 states in the
country could not pay workers salaries when crude oil was selling at
over $100 US dollars per barrel.
He enumerated series of projects
and programmes executed by the present administration in the country
and called on the people not to be deceived by disgruntled politicians.
