The Governor of Bauchi State and presidential hopeful, Bala Mohammed, on Sunday stated that he would support whoever emerges as the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party.
Mohammed stated this while addressing delegates of the party in Anambra, Ebonyi and Enugu ahead of the party’s presidential primary on the 28th of May.
The Bauchi State Governor would be contesting in the primary alongside, former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, ex-governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, former Senate President, Bukola Saraki, Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal and others.
Mohammed while addressing delegates in Anambra said, “I am presenting myself for election and I seek your support but if I don’t win, I will support the eventual candidate of PDP because we have to rescue Nigeria.”
According to Mohammed, his campaign team is made up of Nigerians from various regions, especially the Southeast, including Prof. Udenta Udenta from Enugu State and other Directors and members cutting across the country.
He further stated, “I am a visionary leader who is fully prepared for national sacrifice, who is tried and trusted, and whose compelling life journey and exposure as a journalist, civil servant, senator, minister, and governor have equipped me with the skills set to tackle the myriad of frightening problems this clueless APC administration has bequeathed to the nation.
“Under my watch as the president, I will leverage the nationalistic instincts inherent in Nigerian citizens to drive national development both from the individual and from the community in a vertical and horizontal manner.”
