The Governor of Bauchi State, Bala Mohammed , has described the former Speaker of the House of Representatives , Yakubu Dogara , who recently defected to the All Progressives Congress , as a “ pandemic ” in politics and also accused Dogara of contract inflation in the project he was executing in his constituency.
Bala said these when hundreds of his supporters from the Dass, Tafawa Balewa and Bogoro local government areas , where Dogara represents , paid him a solidarity visit at the Government House, Bauchi, on Tuesday.
He said beside the local government in the state capital, there is no place that gave him many votes like Dass , Tafawa Balewa and Bogoro and added that these same votes were given to him at the time he contested under the ANPP which were more than what Dogara had in 20 folds.
The governor further said that whatever he is going to do for those places won’t be because of Dogara but for himself and God.
He claimed that all Dogara’s accusations that he isn’t giving allocation to LGAs is all lies and however mentioned that was it not Dogara that brought the road project from his pocket from Bogoro – Dull – Burga at N17 bn and it has not been completed and it is just 45 kilometers.
Bala akin Dogara to the proverbial running dog which is either been chased or chasing something.
He added that it is a pity that Dogara has become an epidemic in politics and he hope the former Speaker finds a cure in due course.
