A member of the Bauchi State House of Assembly , Aminu Tukur , has vowed that President Muhammadu Buhari will not get up to 50 per cent of the votes in the state in next month’ s presidential election.
Tukur said that for supporting the re -election bid of Governor Mohammed Abubabakar , Buhari would not receive from the people the kind of support he had been enjoying from the state.
Tukur , who represents Lere /Bula Constituency on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, said , “ Buhari cannot decide the fate of the people of Bauchi State , if he had 90 per cent supporters in 2015, this time around , he has less than 50 per cent.
“ By raising the hands of Governor Mohammed Abubabakar, he ( Buhari) defeated himself . Even the President will definitely not find it easy in Bauchi State this time around . I am one of those that will not vote for him again . ”
The lawmaker further accused the state government of allegedly failing to deliver the dividends of democracy to the people of the state.
Tukur said , “ The present government in Bauchi State is a failure ; we have never had a government that is so loose, corrupt and inept in the way it handles things like this time around . A government that has served for more than three years and seven months has no N 50m worth of project in any local government area of the state, despite the huge money that accrues to the state.”
