Bauchi PDP gov candidate steps down for Bala Mohammed


Winner of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Bauchi State governorship ticket, Ibrahim Kashim has stepped down for the incumbent governor of the state, Bala Mohammad, in a quick political house run.

According to reports, Kashim decided to step aside for the incumbent governor in an inside caucus meeting conducted by stakeholders to plan the way forward.

The former Secretary to the State Government resigned earlier this year to run for governor of the state under the PDP.

He however emerged as the PDP’s gubernatorial candidate in the primaries on Monday, May 20th, 2022. Meanwhile, in an unexpected turn of events, he honorably stood down to allow the incumbent Governor who had last weekend lost the party’s Presidential primary to continue the captainship he had begun in the state.

On his official twitter handle, Kashim tweeted, “In Nigerian politics, integrity is a word thrown around loosely, while actualisation of its value is few and far between. Integrity is to do the right thing at the right time, every single time, and this is a value that Ibrahim Kashim embodies.”

He maintained that he believes effective governance that results in long-term, good development necessitates a stretch of continuity, even to a higher capacity, in policy and program implementation adding that he would do it again in a heartbeat for the prosperity of the state.
