SELYA YARNAP, Bauchi
A Coalition of the Progressive Political Parties in Bauchi State have warned the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, to mind his business and stop interfering in the Speakership tussle of the Bauchi State House of Assembly.
The Chairman of the Coalition, Alhaji Sanu Mohammed Bura, gave the warning on Monday at a press conference, held at the NUJ Secretariat in Bauchi.
He condemned the statement credited to the APC National Chairman who described the emergence of Alhaji Abubakar Suleiman as Speaker of the 9th assembly in the state as an illegal.
According to him, the biased and unbalanced statement of Adams Oshiomole concerning the leadership tussle of the Bauchi State Speakership was aimed at preventing the smooth running of governance in the state.
Alhaji Bura said, “As critical stakeholders in Bauchi State politics, we are calling on the APC National Chairman to take his eyes, attention and unsolicited concern off Bauchi State. What we are after now, is the development of Bauchi State and not party politics”.
The Chairman added: “Thirteen members of the State House of Assembly elected the speaker on the floor of the House of Assembly with the mace, Clerk and staff, but unfortunately, another faction of the APC who are house members, came out from thier hide out and paraded another person as Speaker. They conducted themselves in an uncivilized manner likely to ignite trouble”.
Although the matter was still before the court of law, he accused Adams Oshiomole of causing confusion in the leadership of the APC in Edo State and advised him to first resolve the crisis in his state and stop interfering in the business of other states.
