“It is necessary that each candidate presents himself on an equal footing to participate in this election, in a spirit of fairness and justice.

“The minister’s action will only create animosity among party members and further weaken the party’s chances of producing the next state governor.”

“We cannot afford to remain silent while these undemocratic practices continue in our party.

“We are committed to producing the next governor of the state of Bauchi and we will achieve our goal only by sticking to universally recognized democratic practices”, underlined one of the speakers who did not want his name to be. noted.

Stakeholders also alleged that federal and state Coral lawmakers were in the process of approving the minister’s preferred choice.
