Yuguda blames religious, political crises on media hype
By Henry Umoru
ABUJA – Governor Isa Yuguda of Bauchi State has said the state had never had major incident of insecurity since 2009.
He also said what obtained was media hypes about attacks which never existed, adding that Bauchi State chapter of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, was intact, contrary to reports in some quarters that members of the party were divided.
Speaking at the Wadata Plaza, Abuja, when he led a delegation of the state chapter of PDP on a visit to the party’s National Chairman, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, Yuguda said: “We are one family. We have enjoyed relative peace in our state in the zone and since 2009 we have never had a major incidence of insecurity except media hypes about attacks here and there, which never existed.
“Politically, the entire Bauchi State today is PDP. The opposition tried to wreck havoc during the presidential elections and other elections but today have remained silent.”
On why he was at the party’s national secretariat, Mallam Yuguda said: “We are here not only to pay a courtesy visit on you and members of the executive, but to wish you well and to pray for you and confirm to you and assure you that our loyalty to you as our party chairman is unalloyed.”
The governor, who called for unity among Nigerians, advised the nation’s leaders not to discriminate against any Nigerian because of either his tribal extraction or the religion he confessed, adding that anything to the contrary will take such person to hell.
