Governor Muhammed Abubakar of Bauchi State has boasted that the Speaker of House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara is not a threat to him in his reelection bid.

Governor Abubakar said this on Tuesday, in Abuja, while speaking with journalists at the national secretariat of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

The governor, who described Dogara as a sinking man following his allegation against him that he misappropriated the state’s funds, threatened to sue him for his “reckless statements”.

He said the speaker could not pose any threat to his re-election bid.

“I want people to first and foremost know that Dogara comes from a very tiny part of Bauchi State. I am contesting for the governorship. I understand where he is coming from. He is a sinking man.

“I am not his opponent, Dogara is grabbing at every straw, and one other thing to understand, in 2015, Mr President didn’t win election in Bogoro, Dogara’s local government council. I didn’t win election there. But, today Muhammadu Buhari is president and I am Governor of the state.

“People should understand that Dogara represents a total of eighty thousand registered voters. I won election in 2015 with over three hundred thousand difference. So, do your arithmetic and place it very well,” he said.

On Dogara’s allegation that massive fraud and theft to the tune of N400 billion had been perpetrated under his government so far, Governor Abubakar said: “Dogara is clutching at straw. Go to the website of the federal ministry of finance and download the total allocation to Bauchi state from June 2015 till date. And, then do a calculation. You will have a total and the entire allocation to the state. It is not up to 400 billion.”
