When contacted, the Bauchi State APC Organising Secretary, Lawan Gyan-Gyan, said they had “routed” the opposition party in the state.
“For example, in Bauchi North, we don’t have any opposition. In Bauchi South, the only opposition figure is Adamu Gumba. We have conquered Bauchi North, because the APC has all the political heavyweights from that area in its kitty.
“In Bauchi Central, it is only Senator Abdul Ningi that remains,” he said.
Speaking on Mu’azu, Gyan-Gyan said the APC was aware of what was going on and will not disclose or pre-empt the former governor’s move.
“We are in touch with not only Mu’azu’s people but other people with links to the PDP so that we can easily win the election.
“Mu’azu is a big fish and he is already in our net, God willing. We have very high expectations that he will soon be with us. We cannot categorically disclose that he has joined the party since he has not been seen with the president making the 4+4 sign. But we are confident that he is in our net,” he said.
