2015: Bauchi North Must Produce Gov – PDP Chieftain

| September 10, 2012 More

Ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Chieftain, Alhaji B.B Dogo, has declared that the northern zone [Katagum Zone]of Bauchi State, should be allowed to produce the state governor based on the fact that its southern counterpart has ruled the state for 16 consecutive years.

His call came against the backdrop of the scramble and declaration of interest by politicians in the state to contest the 2015 governorship election.

Dogo who said this over the weekend while chatting with journalists in Bauchi, said in the interest of fairness and justice, the Bauchi south senatorial zone should hand over power to either the northern or central regions so that they will also contribute their quota to the developments of the state.

He asked politicians from Bauchi south such as the minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Senator Bala Muhammad who has started to show interest for the plum job come 2015, to discard their ambitions because “others need to be given a sense of belonging for they are also bonafide citizens of Bauchi state.

 “The governorship of Bauchi state should not be made like an inheritance, where the candidates must always come from one region.  For the sake of fairness and justice, the north or the central senatorial zone shall produce the state governor in 2015’’, he said.

The PDP Chieftain therefore called on not only his party but the other opposition political parties in the state to make sure that they give their tickets to only the candidates who emerge from either the ‘Katagum’ Zone or the Bauchi central zone in order to check the current political imbalance in the state.

On the 2015 presidency, the renowned politician advised President Good luck Jonathan, the ruling PDP and the presidential hopefuls from the southern and western parts to follow the path of honour by handing over power to the north with a view to ensuring political stability in the country.

However, Alhaji Dogo opined that even when the power shifts to the north, the presidential flag bearer of the PDP should come from the north east which he claimed had been marginalized since after the first republic.
