Babagana Zulum, Borno State governor, says his Bauchi counterpart, Bala Mohammed, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will soon join the All Progressive Congress (APC).
Mr Zulum stated this on Thursday while leading North-East governors to perform the groundbreaking ceremony for the reconstruction and upgrading of the Bauchi State Government House.
The Bauchi helmsman made headlines recently when he justified the illegal act of herdsmen bearing arms, saying they were doing so for self-defense having been failed by the government and locals.
“I want to express my appreciation to my colleague, the Governor of Bauchi State, and my other colleagues for giving me the support to take the North-East Governors’ Forum to a greater height and indeed to the next level,” Zulum said.
“The only quarrel that I am having with my colleague, the Governor of Bauchi State is his refusal to come into the APC.
“But inshallah, very soon, he will join us. He’ll join the Progressives. I am here to support him,” he added.
