Bauchi Council Boss Acuses Lawmaker of Instigation Against Gov, APC


Chairman, Tafawa Balewa Local Government Council Caretaker Committee in Bauchi State, Aminu Umar Danbaba has accused the Member representing Lere/Bula in the State House of Assembly Mohammed Aminu Tukur of instigating the people of the area against Governor Mohammed Abubakar and the ruling All Progressives Congress, (APC).
Danbaba alleged that the crisis that was rocking the party at the ward level in the Local Government Area was the handwork of the lawmaker who was bent on destroying party structures that the administration in the state had worked hard to build.
He argued that the security and peace in the party was being threatened by the hate campaigns by the lawmaker while his frequent media attacks on Governor Mohammed Abubakar’s  government was further heating up the polity.
“It is very disheartening that a lawmaker who is supposed to be promoting the change mantra we worked so hard to achieve during the 2015 election, is the one destroying the party structures in Tafawa Balewa Local Government Area and the state as a whole”
“Stakeholders in the local government are aware that because Governor Mohammed Abubakar refused to dance to his tunes, Tukur’s  attacks has become dangerous and threatening unity in the party at the Local Government level”
The council chairman warned, “Tukur should stop instigating the people of the state against Governor Abubakar through his utterances. Rather he should be grateful to the Governor for accommodating him in his government despite his shortcomings”
Alhaji Aminu Danbaba recalled that Tafawa Balewa Local Government which was the bastion of politics in the state has produced important personalities that occupied highly placed positions at National and International and state levels.
He cited personalities such as the Nigerian first Nigerian Prime Minister, Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, former deputy governor of the state in the second republic Alhaji Adamu Tafawa Balewa, late Ambassador Balarabe Tafawa Balewa among others who were products of the area.
The Chairman further recalled that the lawmaker was the former campaign director of Governor Mohammed Abubakar during 2015 Governorship primary election, who left the governor to his fate, thinking that he will not win the elections.
Danbaba also warned that the party will carry out disciplinary measures against the lawmaker for his anti-party activities as, according to him, nobody was above the constitution of the party.
The lawmaker has in a swift response said that the Local Government chairman was in no position to make such allegations against him as he was only a  civil servant prior to his appointment as chairman caretaker committee of Tafawa Balewa Local Government.
“I want say that the chairman of Tafawa Balewa Local Government is not a card carrying member of APC and has no investment in the party, therefore he has no right to accuse me because he was not there when we work for the party’s victory in 2015”
“I am not a corrupt person like him, who includes his wives, children and relatives in the payroll of the Local Government simply because he is opportune. I have never been indicted or found wanting throughout my political career”, Tukur said
