BAUCHIâ€” Contrary to the allegation that the 10-year ban on immediate past governor of Bauchi state, Adamu Muazu, from holding public office by the state Government will affect the electoral fortunes of the present government inÂ the 2011 election, the Special Assistant to the Governor on Media, Sanusi Muhammed, said Governor Isa Yuguda cannot rely on Mauzu to win the election in 2011.
Sanusi Muhammed, who stated this in an interview with newsmen in Bauchi yesterday said Yuguda does not need Muazu for anything.
â€œIn 2006, weÂ needed the support of MuazuÂ but Yuguda later defeated him.Â It is Muazu now who needs Yuguda because we do not need Muazu for anything again.
â€œEven in 2007 when Muazu was in power, Yugudaâ€™sÂ Special Assistant, Bala Muhmmed,Â contestedÂ against Muazu at the Senatorial election and defeated him.
â€œWe donâ€™t need to ridicule Muazu toÂ scale through 2011 election.â€ Sanusi said
According to him, the immediate past governor and his other aides were banned from holding political offices because of alleged misappropriation of funds during theirÂ eight years tenure.
Sanusi said â€œWhat Yuguda didÂ was a revolution. When revolution took place in 2007, all these people trying to make noise now ran away, some of them relocated for over 2 months until sanity was returned toÂ Bauchi. Some of them abandoned their family and ran away,â€ he added.
