Bauchi APC Optimistic Of Reclaiming Mandate, Says Matori

The opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) in Bauchi has said even though the party’s gubernatorial candidate lost the 18th March polls, it is still hopeful of reclaiming the mandate at the election tribunal.

The concerned group of the party under the leadership of Hon. Isa Musa Matori therefore called on all members of the APC in the state to be reunited , saying that the party will bounce back stronger despite the fact that it lost the governorship election.

Hon Isa Matori who led a press conference of the group at the NUJ Secretariat, Bauchi Monday, also

debunked the allegation that crisis has hit the party in the state following call by some of it’s members to suspend it’s state chairman.

He attributed the suspension of APC state chairman, Babayo Aliyu Misau to his anti-party activities, stressing that the party only have some minor misunderstanding which is common in any party.

Matori stated that all the congresses  that held to produce Executive members of the party were single handedly sponsored by Mallam Adamu Adamu, the Minister of Education.


According to him, because the PDP government was afraid of losing out during the local government elections, it went ahead to select it’s local government council chairmen who did not contest any election.

“Some of you know the truth of what happened during the last governorship election in the state, they said that our candidate, Air Marshal Sadique Baba Abubakar lost the election, but we did not lose the election”.

“In the light of this, we the APC concerned members in the state are calling on our members that this is not the time for the trading of blames, rather it is time to be more united than before so that we can pursue our case to a logical conclusion” 

“There is no need for us to fight because of anything, we are all equal members of the party. Mallam Adamu Adamu supported all the candidates that  contested under the platform of the party with financial support”.

For that reason, Matori said,  members should reunite and be one family, stressing “We do not regard anybody as an outsider as long as you are a member of APC. What we need from everybody now, is total commitment to the party”.

Matori explained that what is needed from every member of the party is patience, commitment, perseverance and loyalty so that the party can emerge successful when their case is mentioned at the election tribunal.
