Four All Progressives Congress ( APC) governors are presently in Bauchi state to support the party’s candidate, Lawal Yahaya Gumau to win the Bauchi South senatorial district by-election.
Zamfara State Governor who is also the Chairman of Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF), Abdullazeez Yari, led the other Governors who participated in the final campaign of the candidate.
The other governors include; Simon Lalong of Plateau, Atiku Bagudu, Kebbi and Badaru Abubakar of Jigawa state.
While speaking, Governor Yari said " Our message is simple, the Acting President is seriously worried about what is going on in Bauchi State. He told us to tell you that it will be a shameful and disgraceful thing to us in the northern part of the Nigeria, with all the love being shown to Buhari in Bauchi State, for him to raise the hand of someone and endorse him, and he loses that election," he said.
Speaking, the APC candidate, Lawal Yahaya Gumau, said that he wanted to move to the senate from the House of Representatives to protect the interest of President Muhammadu Buhari, his constituency and the nation.
Gumau is currently a Member of the House of Representatives representing Toro Federal Constituency.
"I, Lawal Yahaya Gumau, wants you to know that the mandate that will be given to me on Saturday, is to go and protect Buhari’s interest in the Senate.
"This is the only mandate that I will be going to the Senate with. Every other mandate you know, I have fulfilled it already in the House of Representatives where I have been for 8 years," he said.
