Why Dogara, others are after me – Bauchi gov

Bauchi State Governor Mohammed Abubakar yesterday alleged that the Speaker of the House of Representatives and other federal legislators from the state were fighting him because he opposed Dogara’s candidature during the National Assembly leadership elections.
Addressing State House reporters after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja, the governor said he defended himself before Buhari of the spurious allegations by Dogara and others.
Dogara had earlier last month led federal lawmakers and All Progressives Congress (APC) leaders from the state to report the governor to the party’s national leaders in Abuja.
Dogara’s delegation, comprising senators and members of the House of Representatives as well as Education Minister Adamu Adamu had also met with President Buhari and accused the governor of non-utilisation of the bail-out funds meant for workers’ salaries.
On whether he would reconcile with Dogara, he said: “The night before I travelled to China, I had a meeting with them in Asokoro and we agreed before I travelled, but in my absence, they decided to do what they did. I’ve not closed the door to reconciliation; some elders in Bauchi are trying to reconcile the warring factions.”
Abubakar said having investigated the allegation of bailout funds’ misapplication, the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission reported that the state utilised all funds, but N165 million.
