By Patience Ogbodo

BAUCHI— 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 in  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.

“In 2006, we  needed the support of Muazu  but Yuguda later defeated him.  It is Muazu now who needs Yuguda because we do not need Muazu for anything again.

“Even in 2007 when Muazu was in power, Yuguda’s  Special Assistant, Bala Muhmmed,  contested  against Muazu at the Senatorial election and defeated him.

“We don’t need to ridicule Muazu to  scale through 2011 election.” 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 their  eight years tenure.

Sanusi said “What Yuguda did  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 to  Bauchi. Some of them abandoned their family and ran away,” he added.
