Immediate-past governor of Bauchi State, Isa Yuguda returned to Bauchi Thursday to the warm embrace of his supporters after 18 months of absence from the state.

Addressing journalists, Mr. Yuguda said that he came home to thank the people of Bauchi State, after suffering from an ailment for one and half years.

He said a lot of sad events took place during his absence, hence the need to come and condole with families of his departed associates and friends.

He stated that he was not in Bauchi for ‘politics’, reminding his supporters that he did not belong to any political party for now.

“I came home not for politics yet; when the time for that comes, then I will decide which party to join and then politicking begins.

“I am in Bauchi to appreciate prayers of the good people of the state when I was abroad for an ailment which I had to undergo surgery,” he said.

He commended journalists in the state for upholding the ethics of their profession by providing information to members of the public during his administration.

Mr. Yuguda also said that there was never a time that his Bauchi resident was sealed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and people denied entry or exit.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the former governor is coming to Bauchi for the first time since departing the state after the 2015 general elections, during which his attempt to clinch the Bauchi South Senatorial seat failed to materialise.
