Atiku deliberately sidelined me from his campagin – Gov. Bala




The Bauchi State Governor, Senator Bala Mohammed, has claimed that the Presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) deliberately sidelined from his campagin for contesting against his during party’s primaries in May 2022.


Mohammed had contested against Atiku in the May 28 primaries held at the Moshood Abiola Stadium, Abuja, where he alongside 12 other aspirants was defeated.

Out of 767 accredited ballots at the election, Atiku polled 371 votes whereas Mohammed got 20 votes.

Mohammed, who was recently named the vice-chairman of the PDP Presidential Campaign Council, said this in a protest letter, with reference number, GH/OFF/09/V.I, and dated November 3, 2022.

He claimed that he was “excluded from the activities of the PCC” as it relates to his office.

In the letter, addressed to the party chair, Senator Iyorchia Ayu, and signed by Mohammed, his deputy, Senator Baba Tela; Speaker of the House of Assembly, Abubakar Suleiman; state Chairman of the PDP, Hamza Akuyam and 30 others, read in part, “I was deliberately sidelined from the reach-out campaign of the PCC in Kaduna, which interacted with major stakeholder groups and the northern political establishments such as the Arewa Consultative Forum, Northern Elders’ Forum, Sadauna Foundation, Arewa Research and Development Progress, etcetera.”

He also alleged that he was targeted by some political gladiators purportedly endorsed “directly or indirectly by the presidential candidate of our party, Atiku Abubakar.”
