Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Iyorcha Ayu, on Saturday, landed in Bauchi to hold a consultative meeting with Gov. Bala Mohammed.

Ayu was accompanied by the Director-General of the PDP Presidential Campaign Council, Gov. Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto and former governor of Jigawa, Sule Lamido.

The delegation arrived in Bauchi in the evening and held a closed-door meeting with their host.

Speaking shortly before the meeting, Ayu described Mohammed as one of the major national stakeholders who contributed to the development of the party.

“We are here to brief you on some of the developments that are going on in the party, and to seek your wise counsel because you’re not just the governor of Bauchi, you’re a leader in this country.

“You are experienced in all the places you served, and we thought people like you in this campaign, from time to time, we need to come around, consult and brief you on some things,” he said.

Responding, Mohammed said that he is a loyal member of the party and believed in it, adding that “we rose on the back of the party to become what we have become.

“We know that we came from ANPP (All Nigerian Peoples Party), but certainly whatever we have become is courtesy of this party.

“We have discussed issues affecting the party, especially my area as a vice chairman of the presidential campaign council in charge of the north”, he said.

Muhammed told newsmen that his guests came with issues regarding some grey areas which were not for public consumption.

He said the meeting was part of closing rank.

He commended the party’s national chairman who, he said, displayed humility by coming down to Bauchi with the campaign organization’s Director-General, Aminu Tambuwa.
