Governor of Bauchi State ,Mallam Isa Yuguda has said that it was PDP members who attacked the campaign rally of President Jonathan (in Bauchi), not APC youth as alleged.
The governor, also a PDP member who spoke in hausa tells the BBC, that it was some Bauchi PDP stalwarts who are in power in Abuja that organized the attack by the youths.
Minister of FCT Bala Muhammed and PDP National Chairman, Ahmadu Mu’azu are among the PDP stalwarts from Bauchi (in Abuja) who are believed not to be working in concert with the governor though they are from the same party .
It was on Thursday that some youth launched attacks on President Goodluck Jonathan’s convoy along some streets when president’s convoy was on its way to the Emir of Bauchi’s palace as well as at the venue of the presidential rally.
Here is the BBC Hausa report:
