As learnt, the reason for this is that the governor wants them to write a letter to the president and copied to the Hon. Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, who is the Chairman of the Presidential Committee that mandated to look into the messy primary elections of the APC across the country, indicating that Captain Muhammad Bala Jibrin cannot win election if given the APC Governorship ticket and also to intimate in their letter that the said Captain Jibrin is a very rigid and uncompromising person, can hardly be the type of governor they want for Bauchi State.
Impeccable sources familiar with the twists in Bauchi State disclosed to this medium that the letter which will be signed by all the Emirs in Bauchi State may be submitted to the presidency tomorrow.
It is on a note that prior to this time the Bauchi Governor holds no respect for traditional the institution in Bauchi State.
It was however learnt that even now, the Emirs were coerced by the governor to write the purported letter.
It would be recalled that the APC primary elections in Bauchi State were widely believed to have not held, names were just forwarded to the headquarters of the Party as winners of the primaries. This, like in many states is currently threatening to tear the Party apart. In Bauchi State, even where the elections were conducted, they were conducted in the middle of the night against all relevant Nigerian laws.
The primary elections in Bauchi State were said to be characterized by shootings by securities operatives which resulted in the alleged loss of lives and injuries.
