Amidst claims by Governor Mohammed Abubakar sometime last year that Federal Legislators of Bauchi origin were involve in the alleged impeachment plan against President Muhammadu Buhari, one of the Federal Legislators who that accusation was made against, Senator Ali Wakili has come out to debunk to the issue. In an exclusive interview with this medium, Senator Wakili told this medium that Governor Abubakar who has always camouflaged and do eye service as he is for President Muhammadu Buhari, while he brands them as enemies of President Buhari is the person that has been an enemy of President for a very long time even now that he is a governor. Senator Wakili told this medium that Governor Abubakar has a pathological hatred for President Muhammadu Buhari.
According to Senator Wakili he told this medium how Governor Mohammed Abubakar worked against the President during the last APC presidential primary election, as he stated that the Governor worked for Atiku Abubakar, even as he hinted that he divided the Bauchi delegates who have set their mind for Buhari at the Primary.
“You are witness to some of the lackeys, man-Fridays and political cohorts masquerading as patriotic members of the party championing for good governance organizing themselves, staged protests with covers of apparatus of the State, going to desecrate the sanctity of our heritage i.e. the Palace of Emir of Bauchi, to the House of Assembly where the Speaker received them and to the Government House where the Governor came out personally to receive them and made bombastic statements of his support for the recall of your recall, Sen. Wakili said.
Speaking further he said; “Ironically this is someone that has pathological hatred for President Muhammadu Buhari from his days as a Public Officer in strategic Institution of the State, to his disdain for the aspiration of the President at the stages of the APC Presidential Primaries. It is to everyone’s knowledge that he was the team leader of the campaign team of one of the Aspirants, former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, he was the one that divided the delegates in favour of his aspirants, and he was the one that disbursed all logistics for that aspirant to the detriment of President Muhammadu Buhari. Former Deputy Governor Garba Gadi, Senator Mohammed A. Mohammed, Colonel Umar Tilde (rtd), Musajo, Ali Saidu, Dr. Dabo, Hon. Sanni Abdu, Senator Salisu Matori etc. are living witnesses to the ignominable role played he played at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Surulere Lagos in December 2014.”
“But because of the nature and psychology of our people for the trust, confidence and belief in the integrity and leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari and that whoever appears to be working against Mr. President, he will have the people’s disdain and anger. It thus became a weapon of blackmail and tool for use against your perceived ones, as the people might show wrath on him. At the election of the principal Officers of the Assembly, the President twice said that the elected members should use their discretion in-line with the Constitution to elect their choice as he is ready to work with all. However due to some internal maneuvers within the party members, those of us that stood by Senator Bukola Saraki were mischievously portrayed as enemies of President Muhammadu Buhari,” he said.
He also stated that Governor Abubakar’s mischief; “is out of fear of tomorrow and that with our engagement, contributions and outreach we became threats to the non-performing Governor and to ruin us, was to sponsor that misguided actions which to go to town to hide under the name of Buhari to malign us.”
“Thank Allah it didn’t work as the Citizens of the State realized the Governor wanted to cover his inadequacies by hiding under the name of President Muhammadu Buhari. The issue of the impeachment in the Senate was a hoax. It was never initiated by anyone in the Senate, but for their expediency and for cheap blackmail they went to town to say we from the State at the Senate were part of the hoax.
Remember I said the easiest way to destroy a political career of one is to sell the dummy that he is anti-Buhari. As I said because the Governor was not performing he needed to take the attention of the Citizens from his inadequacies and heap it on us. As providence would have it he and his hirelings and political jobbers and clowns have forgotten that a week before the hoax we were seen at a Press Conference with other members of the APC Caucus led by Professor Adeyeye, the Senate Whip restating our loyalty to the Party and ever-readiness to defend the Buhari Presidency,” he stated.
