Gov Bala Mohammed
Gov Bala Mohammed of Bauchi state gave out 59 new cars to local governments’ campaign coordinators of the Peoples Democratic Party on Sunday, June 19.
Mohammed said the move was to enable the beneficiaries to carry his campaign and that of the larger PDP to all corners of the state for the 2023 general elections.
Other beneficiaries of the car gifts were members of the central working committee as well as zonal committee members of the party.
The governor noted that the provision of the vehicles would help to facilitate the party’s success at the elections.
“We are ready to do better. I charge you all to enter every nook and cranny of the state. We are ready to counter all the lies and false claims opponents are spreading against the party.
“Nobody can come and deceive our traditional rulers; nobody can come and deceive our youths and nobody can come to deceive the electorate,’’ he said.
Mohammed claimed that he had fulfilled 90 per cent of his campaign promises and noted that supporters of opposition parties in the state were consequently joining the PDP in large numbers.
He assured aggrieved party members, particularly those who lost at the recent primary elections that the reconciliation committee he set up would address every issue and reconcile them with the winners.
Bauchi PDP chairman Hamza Akuyam appreciated the governor for the gesture.
He said the party was proud of the governor as he had delivered on his campaign promises to the credit of the party and deserved to be re-elected.
The 59 cars distributed were 49 Peugeot 406 cars, eight Toyota Corolla cars, one Lexus car and one Honda Accord vehicle.
