‘Bala Mohammed Behind Dogara’s Suspension As Jakadan Bauchi’

Hon Yakubu Dogara, a former Speaker of the House of Representatives has accused Bauchi State Governor Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed of coercing Bauchi Emirate Council to suspend him as Jakadan Bauchi.

The Bauchi Emirate Council yesterday suspended the former Speaker as Jakadan Bauchi over the alleged involvement of Hon Dogara in the attack meted on the Emirs of Bauchi and Dass on 31st December 2021 while making their way to Bogoro to attend late Baba Gonto 21st memorial lecture.

Reacting to the development, Dogara, in a statement on Tuesday said the Emir of Bauchi Alhaji Rilwanu Sulaimanu Adamu was under great pressure from the governor to pronounce the suspension so as to make him irrelevant in the scheme of not just Bauchi politics but Nigeria as a whole ahead of the 2019 general elections.

He said the Emirate council has not served with a suspension notice as it ought to have done to formalise its decision, insisting that he saw the purported suspension of social media platforms.

“I am aware that both His Royal Highness and members of the Council have been under tremendous pressure from the Bauchi State Government to withdraw the traditional title conferred on me for quite some time now.

“It is all part of a smear campaign to portray me as insensitive and convict me in the court of public opinion for the political gains of some desperate characters.

“The phrase: “Goje uban Kaura” torments the Governor and rents his sleep.

“Since I dropped like a bag of weed, in order to get at me, he procured the services of a money bag lackey in Zaar land who is also a victim of the same delusions of grandeur about destroying my political career as if they, not God, made me who I am.

“It’s a pity that they have failed to learn the hard lessons from others who have tried doing so before them,” he said.

Hon Dogara alleged that Governor Bala Andulkadir out of the dirty play of politics revoked the titles of two of his plots as he did to other Bauchi APC stalwarts.

“For their sadistic entertainment, the Governor had before now illegally revoked two titles to my land just as he did to my colleague and namesake, Hon Yakubu Shehu Abdullahi and a former Governor of the State who also doubles as his mentor and benefactor.

“Suspension of traditional titles of political opponents at the behest of the Governor has become routine now,” Dogara said.
