Governor Bala Mohammed says he had taken his defeat by Alhaji Atiku Abubakar in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential primary in good faith.

Mohammed stated this on Monday, at the inauguration of a 22-man PDP reconciliation committee in Bauchi state.

The governor also advised others who lost various positions in the party primaries across the country to accept it with humility.

“Losing is part of democracy. I lost, but I have taken it in good faith.

“I’m calling on others who lost like me in the presidential primary to take it with humility and strong faith in God,” he said.

According to him, the establishment of the committee was in furtherance of the party in making sure that it went intact into the 2023 general elections as a family.

He said that the term of reference of the committee was to reach out to all the people who contested in the party primaries including both those who won and lost, to reconcile them as one big family.

“This was necessary because none of us is larger than the party and none of us is bigger than all of us.

“All of us must come together irrespective of what happened during the primaries.

“There have been a lot of permutations and even insults unleashed on each other, but we have to forget all these because we have to forge ahead”.

Meanwhile, Mohammed said he has thrown his weight behind the former Vice president, Atiku Abubakar, adding that he would do everything to make sure that he triumphs at the polls in 2023.
