Halliru Jika said, he did not step down his ambition to any candidates, “I did not step down from the Governorship for any candidate and my party has campaigned extensively. This rumour has been going round and l have in several fora said it over and over that I did not step down for any one.”
“I am going to be the best thing that has ever happened to Bauchi. I am an engineer. I am a technician, I have the ability and the capacity to turn things around, to revolutionize the way of governance in Bauchi State.”
The NNPP candidate said that his party is the party to beat, “I the history of politics in Nigerian there has never been any political party that attained this position within a shortage period of time, the success that we have recorded so far and the millage we have gained so far,” Dokaji said.
Speaking on the recently signed peace accord by political parties in the state ahead of the March 18 elections, he said peace would reign if INEC did the needful. He therefore called on INEC, the electoral umpire, to be neutral, just and fair to all.
“I made it categorically clear to everybody that cared to listen that as long as there is no attempt to subvert the will of the people in the elections in Bauchi State there will be peace. I will abide by the rules of the game but anything else we don’t know.”
