Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno State has stated that Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed, will soon dump the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The Borno governor stated this when he led the North-East Governors to perform the groundbreaking ceremony for the reconstruction and upgrading of the Bauchi State Government House on Thursday.
According to Zulum, the Bauchi governor has been refusing to dump the PDP for the APC.
He however expressed optimism that Bala Mohammed would join the ruling party soon.
Zulum who is the Chairman of the North-East Governors’ Forum said, “I want to express my appreciation to my colleague, the Governor of Bauchi State, and my other colleagues for giving me the support to take the North-East Governors’ Forum to a greater height and indeed to the next level.
“The only quarrel that I am having with my colleague, the Governor of Bauchi State is his refusal to come into the APC.
“But inshallah, very soon, he will join us. He’ll join the Progressives. I am here to support him.”
