Bauchi State Governor, Isa Yuguda
By Chuks OKocha
Bauchi State Governor, Isa Yuguda, Monday refuted recent media reports that he was lobbying to run as vice-president alongside President Goodluck Jonathan in 2015.
In a statement signed by the Special Adviser to the national chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Osaro Onaiwu, he said Yuguda said he thought he put speculations to rest when he previously stated that he was returning to his farm upon completing his second term as the state governor in 2015.
Onaiwu said the governor said he would not be distracted from his commitment to stay focused on delivering dividends of democracy to the people of his state before he leaves office.
The Special Adviser further blamed the peddlers of such rumours as political jobbers who are looking for ways to profit from creating disaffection among politicians.
“Unfortunately for them, we all in the PDP see through these sponsored reports and remain united and undeterred in our service to the nation,” he asserted.
