‘Your Government Is Oppressor Class From Outside’, Speaker Dogara Rejoices Over Defeat Of Gov. Abubakar

By Editor

Yakubu Dogara, Speaker of the House of Representatives and chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party has rejoiced over the defeat of incumbent Governor of Bauchi State, Mohammed Abubakar.

Abubakar, who sought for re-election under the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), was defeated by a former Federal Capital Territory (FCT) minister and PDP candidate in the state governorship election, Mohammed Bala.
While glorying in the defeat of Abubakar in a statement he made available to newsmen, Dogara also advised the governor-elect not to take the trust reposed in him by Bauchi people for granted.
He asked him to always remember the rejection of the incumbent governor as a lesson of what awaits them if they fail to live up to expectations.
“The victory of PDP in Bauchi State is the crowning of the struggle for the emancipation and liberation of our people from the forces of darkness, evil and retrogression that had held the state captive and hostage for over a decade.
“Indeed, Bauchi and its people have never been this challenged throughout our contemporary history. An oppressor class led mainly by people from outside has chained our dear impoverished people to servitude, underdevelopment and penury.
“In their unlettered arrogance, they have taken Bauchi people for granted to the point that they believe the patience of an oppressed people will last forever. They, therefore, sought to perpetuate themselves in office again for another four years through this elections just to continue feeding their greed and perfidy.
“Historically, Bauchi people are known to be brave and politically savvy. They saw through the charade and decided this is the time to break away from the curse that has afflicted us thus far.  By our collective resolve and by the results of this election, we have once again demonstrated to the world that no man-made chains can bind us to servitude. The chains have come undone sending a clear message that Bauchi will never bend its back again for an oppressor to ride.
“Today’s victory is ours. Today’s victory speaks to a better and brighter future for ourselves, our children and generations yet unborn.
“We have proven that working together, there is no challenge that we cannot overcome as a people. I understand as we all celebrate this victory because it came at a cost so many of us were willing to pay in order to salvage our state from the precipice. But we cannot tarry long on this mountain of celebrations as what today’s victory demands of us is to go to work immediately.”
“We cannot go to sleep while over 1.3 million of our children are roaming the streets without access to education; while our hospitals do not qualify as consulting clinics; while hundreds and thousands of our children and youths have no jobs, retirees have no pensions and gratuities; while the entire Local Government system in the state have collapsed and while billions of our resources are being looted using ghost workers and other fraudulent means,” the statement read in part.
