Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State has said that he is ready to accept the outcome of the just concluded Saturday elections.
The Governor, who revealed this to journalists shortly after voting in his Polling unit, Bakin Dutse 008 at about 11.20am alongside his wife, Hajiya Aisha Mohammed in his home town, Duguri in Alkaleri local government area of the state, expressed satisfaction with the general peaceful atmosphere of the conduct of the exercise in the state.
He also expressed satisfaction with the large turn out of voters saying, “l hope the higher the turnout the more the votes for me”.
According to him, “everything is peaceful and people are looking so joyous and l feel that this is the kind of situation we need all over the country, people exercising their universal suffrage without any hindrance, without any acrimony, without any conflict”.
He then expressed concern over report of a helicopter hovering low in his Alkaleri Local Government Area and described it as unfair.
According to him,“I am not aware. l have been complaining over militarisation of the electoral process and l have complained to Mr President, I have complained to all the security agencies”.
He added, “Left for me, I did not want any Air Force personnel to participate in the election because a former Chief of Air Force is competing with me, I don’t want him to be given undue advantage and latitude”.
“Certainly it is not fair for the Air Force to be hovering around people knowing fully well that they are already on one side, the side of the APC Gubernatorial candidate who had never hidden his desire and penchant for militarisation, but certainly everything is fine now”.
