Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State on Tuesday paid a visit to the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar.
Naija News reports that the visit is coming amidst rumoured rift between the two PDP stalwarts.
Recall that the Bauchi State governor had sent a letter to the PDP National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, accusing Atiku of looking away as crises consumed the party’s structure in Bauchi.
In a statement to newsmen by the New Media Aide to Bauchi Governor, Lawal Muazu Bauchi, Bala Mohammed led a delegation of Bauchi State stakeholders of the PDP to Abuja, on a courtesy visit to Atiku in honor of an invitation by the National Chairman of the Party, Iyorchia Ayu.
Members of the delegation were Senators Bala Kariya and Adamu Gumba, Speaker of the State House of Assembly Abubakar Sulaiman and PPS, Samaila Burga.
Also in attendance were Ayu, DG PDP Presidential Campaign Council and Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal and former governor of Jigawa Sule Lamido.
“Issues related to unity and the progress of the Party were discussed and amicably addressed,” the statement said.
