Bauchi 2019: You ‘re confused, Abubakar tells Pate

Bauchi state Governor, Mohammed Abubakar has asserted that his challenger in the upcoming governorship primary, Ali Pate is in political confusion.
The governor made the assertion while reacting to claim by Pate that unless direct primaries were conducted in the state, the party would lose the 2019 elections.
Abubakar in a press statement signed by his Special Adviser, Media and Strategy, Ali M. Ali noted that the governorship aspirant made the claims in Abuja after being screened by the party national headquarters.
“Our attention has been drawn to the fantastic claims of a gubernatorial candidate of our dear state, Bauchi, on the platform of our great party, the APC to the effect that unless a direct primary was conducted to ‘test the popularity of all aspirants,’ the party will lose in the impending polls early next year.
He reportedly said this in a chat with newsmen in Abuja after being screened by the party.
“These are fantastic claims coming from him.
It is also amusing.
For a perennial aspirant for the office of governor, he has an uncanny ability to hibernate for years only to surface at times like these.
“We, therefore; ask how did he know the feelings and concerns of fellow citizens when he was not available during their period of tribulations? How would he know that the people of Bauchi were worried about a possible ‘imposition? “We think he is confusing his personal political agenda with the yearnings of the people of our state, a preponderance of whom are solidly behind the government of MA Abubakar,” he said.
He alleged that Pate is a spoiler on a mission to ruin the chances of the party by calling for direct primaries, adding that fall out of direct primary is hardly manageable up to general election.
