Bauchi State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will be conducting a fresh governorship primary, just after concluding one last week.
The state’s Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Yayanuwa Zainabari who confirmed this barely a week after former Secretary to Bauchi State Government (SSG), Ibrahim Kashim clinched the governorship ticket last week, claimed that Kashim said he no longer had interest in the election.
“We are following the process and we will conduct fresh governorship Primary election.
“Governor Bala contested for the presidential ticket based on the calls from well-meaning Nigerians, he answered their calls and now the People of Bauchi want him to contest for the second term. It is also left for the people of the state to decide, and whatever the people decide will be done, governor is somebody who answers the calls of his people.”
This is also coming days after the incumbent Governor, Bala Mohammed, who is in his first term, lost out in the opposition party’s presidential primary.
