Bala Mohammed, the governor of Bauchi state, has stated that he may not be able to compete for re-election in 2023.
Mohammed believes that everything is up to God, not some nameless guys in the State who seek to bring him down.
According to him, he may possibly run for President in 2023.
Bala said that the state’s “Abuja politicians” had nothing to offer other than anger and deceit.
The Governor stated that security data at his disposal suggested that those persons were behind the state’s criminality, and that he knew those behind the state’s kidnappings and criminality.
The governor said this on Tuesday when he distributed cash and starter packs worth N75 million to 500 selected people in Darazo town, located in Darazo Local Government Area.
“Don’t listen to the Abuja politicians who have nothing to offer other than to pull down Bala Mohammed, Kauran Bauchi,” he said.
“By the grace of God, I have become governor with or without them and of course, I will live my time allotted to me by Allah. I may go for a second term, I may not even live to that time; I may go for the presidency, there is nothing they can do. I know what they are doing.
“Those Abuja politicians are not doing anything for us other than bringing mischief. I know some leaders of the state who are busy bringing criminals to the state. I will talk when the time comes. We will prove tough but certainly, we are not afraid of them,” he declared.
