Bauchi State Governor-elect, Senator Bala Mohammed, has berated the outgoing All Progressives Congress (APC) administration in the state over its last minute policies to sabotage the incoming Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) administration.

The spokesperson to the governor-elect, Dr. Ladan Salihu, disclosed this while addressing journalists in Bauchi yesterday.

He lamented that the outgoing administration is bringing in many policies as part of a sinister move to sabotage the incoming PDP administration.

According to him, some of the moves were the alleged award of last minute multi-million naira contracts through the Bauchi State Universal Basic Education Board (BASUBEB) and the plan to create more districts and village areas.

He said the plan to create more districts and village areas is an attempt to increase financial burden for the incoming administration.

Salihu said the same APC administration rejected the districts and village areas created by the former Governor, Mallam Isah Yuguda, because of the fear of financial burden.

He, therefore, wondered why the APC administration is bringing policies at the last minute that might bring hindrance to the incoming administration.

The spokesman warned that government officials should desist from engaging in efforts that would affect the smooth running of the incoming PDP administration.

Speaking on the planned legal action by the APC to challenge the victory of the PDP in the state, he said the party is ready as it has also constituted a legal team of seven Senior Advocates of Nigeria (SAN) and a team of 50 counsel who volunteered to defend the mandate of Mohammed in the Courts.
