The traditional rulers were recieved by His Excellency Governor Mohammed Abubakar at the Banquet Hall of the Bauchi State Government House.

The Royal Fathers congratulated the Governor for his victory at the just concluded APC Gubernatorial Primaries and assured him of their full support.

The Governor assured the traditional leaders of peaceful conduct of all the 2019 primary and general elections, and therefore extended invitation to those who contested the 2019 gubernatorial primaries against him to put heads together with him and move the state to greater heights, pointing out that, “there will always be one winner in any electoral contest.”

The Governor also said that “Under my watch, the government will not drag our respected traditional institution into politics,” and urged the traditional leaders to remain apolitical and keep playing their fatherly roles, the statement added.

Speaking earlier, chairman of the Bauchi State Council of Traditional Rulers and Emir of Bauchi, Alhaji Rilwanu Suleimanu Adamu, while commending the Governor for the peaceful conduct of the gubernatorial primaries, prayed God to lead the governor to perform more in the remaining period of his stewardship.
