The governorship candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party in Bauchi State,mShuaibu Adamu, has dissociated himself from the coalition formed by the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, and elder statesman, Bello Kirfi, aimed at defeating Governor Mohammed Abubakar in the forthcoming governorship poll in the state.
Adamu said at a press conference at the NUJ Press Centre in Bauchi on Friday he was invited to a meeting to be part of the coalition.
He said, “Eleven persons who attended the meeting were from one political party (the PDP), it did not take us long to understand that the proposal was orchestrated to favour the PDP, which has clearly seen defeat. The proposal had nothing to do with the interest of the people of Bauchi State.”
According to him, the NNPP is the only party in the state that produced all its candidates through free and fair elections.
He said the objective of the party was not only to capture power but also to produce a credible alternative in the interest of the people of the state.
He said, “Our party is for the youths, the new breed. The days of money politics are over, the days of reaching the electorate through political touts are gone. The will collect money and vote for the candidates they can trust.
“Let me state categorically to the general public that our candidates have not aligned with any candidate or political party
