Governor Bala Mohammed

The Governor of Bauchi State and Presidential aspirant, Bala Mohammed has reportedly secretly obtained the nomination form for the governorship primary of the Peoples Democratic Party.

Mohammed is eligible to contest for reelection in 2023 as he has served as governor of the state for a term.

There have been speculations on who will take over from him following his presidential intention.

There are claims that the Secretary to the Government of the state, Ibrahim Kashim entered a pact to act as a placeholder for the governor.

Premium Times disclosed that Kashim secretly resigned and obtained the governorship nomination form of the PDP and would contest in the primary of the party.

He would, however, step down for Mohammed if he fails in his presidential bid.

An insider also claimed that Mohammed personally has secretly purchased the governorship nomination form and has been screened and cleared to compete during the primary.

The spokesperson for Mohammed’s presidential campaign, Udenta Udenta while reacting to the allegation described Mohammed’s clearance to run for gubernatorial primary as a rumour.

He said, “I don’t comment on mere rumours. What I know is that he had been screened to contest for the presidency and he has joined a long list of other candidates.”
