Agabus Pwanagba – The Bauchi State Campaign Council of the PDP in the just concluded general election has alleged that National Officers of the party from the State sabotaged their campaign activities which led to the failure of the party in the state.
The Coordinator of the Jonathan/Sambo Campaign Organisation in Bauchi South Senatorial District, Alhaji Bala Abdullahi Mai’auduga disclosed this while briefing journalists in Bauchi.
Mai’auduga said, “Even though there is a clamour for change but our campaign activities were sabotaged by the National leadership of the party that diverted over N230 million campaign funds from the presidency, and all effort to recover the money failed.
He lamented that, if the diverted funds were given to the State, it would have assisted a lot in winning the heart of the electorate to vote for the party.
“But in our case, apart from diverting the funds, the officers also campaigned against the PDP candidates in the State.” He added
Mai’auduga, who was also the Director General of Governor Isa Yuguda and PDP governorship candidate campaign organisation in the zone, said the state leader of the party, Yuguda, his
supporters and the entire PDP supporters in the State intend to remain in PDP and correct the failure of leadership that bedeviled the party at the top which led to its failure.
“After the election, we have analysed everything and discovered the sabotage from the national officers and Abuja politicians who were indigenes of the state, but the people of Bauchi are happy with the developmental projects like the international airport, specialist hospital, university and teaching hospital projects executed by the outgoing administration, and provision of sustainable peace and we intend to remain with the masses in PDP and offer good opposition for the development of democracy in the State.” Mai’auduga stated
