​N​orthern group demands dismissal of FCT minister​ over row with Bauchi governor​

FCT Minister, Bala Mohammed

An organisation, Northern Alliance Group, has asked President Goodluck Jonathan, to fire the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Bala Mohammed, for describing the governor of Bauchi State, Isa Yuguda, as “a mole of the All Progressives Congress in the Peoples Democratic Party”

It also asked the minister to tender an unreserved apology to Mr. Yuguda, stating that his refusal to do so would be “tantamount to biting the fingers that fed him and disrespecting the one under whose political tutelage he emerged”​.​

Mr. Mohammed had on Monday alleged that Mr. Yuguda was a mole of the APC in the PDP.

The minister was responding to an allegation by the governor that he and other politicians from Bauchi State organised ​attacks
​on ​the president’s convoy during ​the ​party’s presidential campaign rally in the state last week.

In a statement on Tuesday by its Coordinator, Idris Sanni, the group said such misguided statements such as the one by the minister at this critical stage of the presidential campaign was capable of causing bad blood between the president and governors who are his most reliable allies in his re-election bid.

The group urged Mr. Jonathan to take the allegation made by Mr. Yuguda seriously that the minister alongside others were behind the ​​​attack​ of the President at the rally in Bauchi.

“Senator Bala Mohammed since he could not realize his dream of becoming governor of Bauchi state has been bitter and thought himself and his supporters will be embarrassing Governor Isa Yuguda by their actions and we are aware that those arrested ​are ​confessed Bala Mohammed supporters” the statement said.

The group further described Mr. Mohammed’s actions as typical of other ministers who put their personal interest above their duties and commitment to Mr. Jonathan.

It said, “We are advising the President not to fall for this cheap ploy as the governors including Governor Yuguda are more important to him at this stage and not ministers like Bala Mohammed who do not have any electoral value in their states.”

    Use and Dump party of Dod eat Dog..thank God change is coming to Nigeria this FEBUHARI

    • Sam

      Change from what to what? Change is the easiest slogan for a challenger to bandy around in a campaign, but a look at those with Buhari and Buhari himself, makes jest of their use of the word change. These guys want to occupy our resource space as long as they live.
      What has Buhari ever offered this country beyond being a perennial presidential candidate? After every election circle what does he contribute to the public discuss? How does he even occupy his kind when there is no campaign? We know nothing about this guy even though he has been with us forever. He is past it and he cannot represent change. I will know agents of change when I see them. Not Tinubu, Saraki et al.

    Jona and his supporters have been dancing naked in the market square for sometime now.
    They have been abusing all the people that can help Jona, from Obasanjo to the entire South West and the North, even there religious politics of dividing the people backfired with Osinbajo as VP. They are so clueless that when you say this wood and that wood are bad and you remove them from the cooking fire, you will be left with nothing except smoke, which can no get your food cooked! (Igi yi oda, a yo ninu ina, ti ohun oda, ayo ni nu aaro, ki je ki obe o tete jina rara)
    It suggests one thing, and that the end is near for Jona.

      Obj is the worst thing–to happen to Jona—did Obj not fall out with abiola–was that caused by Kudirat also–all u people in APC do is to come herte to lie yr way up to aso rock

      • Olu Ade

        Jonathan’s problem is not having “the worst media team” like you said, the real problem is that he is a bad product and even the best media person or propagandist can not sell a really bad product!

        FFK contrary to what you said is not doing Jonathan any good no matter how little. Rather than for him to focus on the uphill task of selling a bad product (Jona), he has been chasing wild goose with his propanganda on Buhari’s certificate, making Buhari more popular while Jona rarely come up in the news or people’s conversation. It is not getting Jona anywhere!

  • Sam

    These ministers that don’t have one vote where they come from. God help Jona if he is relying on these ministers. Ministers that promote themselves.

    • tyson

      who did Buhari rely on to get his letter of recommendation——————not a single Fulani man in the government of Jonathan is working for him–sadly because of his trust in one Nigeria–Jonathan has allowed them to dominate his government–have u ever seen gusua around his campaign trails or dasuki———–

  • tyson

    how many asked BUHARI to come clean on his certificate- scandal–that is a fulani who alleged that he made grade 2 in his school cert without passing maths–and the Fulanis say they don’t care-unaware d law is no respecter of any person–Not among the Fuilanis sha-Buhari campaigned in Yenagoa in the home state of Jonathan –nobody threw a single stone at him–but when Jonathan arrived Katsina state—-we saw his billboards being uprooted—and an insane mentally derailed governor is saying it was Jonathan who hired thugs—to do that in bauchi–a Fulani dominated state—? The first person that they the the thugs stone was the minister of the FCT on the podium
