You lied, Bauchi Government accuses Speaker Dogara

The Bauchi State government has debunked allegations of grand lacerny levelled against the State Governor, Mohammed Abubakar, by the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara.

Mr. Dogara had claimed that Governor Abubakar had progressively diverted the sum of N400 billion from the Bauchi treasury dating from 2015 when he was elected till date.

Speaking on behalf of the Government, Special Adviser on Media and Strategy to the Governor, Ali Ali, has accused House of Representatives speaker, Yakubu Dogara of spreading fake news about the governor.

Ali Ali, said the allegations against his principal are baseless and dismissed them as outright falsehood and rantings of a sinking politician.

Ali said the Speaker’s irresponsible statement might have been triggered by premonition of his electoral humiliation by the voters of Bauchi State.

”This is absolute balderdash especially coming from a supposedly enlightened leader.

“The total receipt from FAAC in the preceding three years is nowhere close to that outrageous figure . It is regrettable that imminent electoral loss is making the Speaker lose his mind. Making such fantastic claims will not save him from the fury of voters in the coming polls.

“For a lawyer, this ridiculous allegation underscores the quality of his thoughts and actions as number four citizen. His leadership is defined by primordial segmentation and sentiments. It is regrettable that his tunnel vision is impervious to the wider and more cosmopolitan polish of the office of the Speaker of House of Representatives,” Ali Ali said.
