Northern Group Tasks Jonathan To Sack FCT Minister, Bala Mohammed

imageFollowing allegations by Bauchi state Governor, Isa Yuguda that minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Bala Mohammed orchestrated the attack on President Goodluck Jonathan, a group, the Northern Alliance Group has asked the President to fire the FCT minister.
The Group also called on minister Bala Mohammed to tender an apology to Governor Yuguda as failure to do so will mean biting the fingers that fed him.
In a statement signed yesterday in Abuja by Idris Sanni, and made available to Journalists, the group said such misguided statements at this critical stage of the presidential campaign was capable of causing bad blood between Mr. President and the
governors who are his most reliable allies in his re-election bid.
The group who called on President Jonathan to take Governor Yuguda’s allegations seriously stated that, “Senator Bala Mohammed since
he could not realise his dream of becoming governor of Bauchi state has been bitter and thought himself and his supporters will be embarrassing Governor Isa Yuguda by their actions
and we are aware that those arrested are confessed Bala Mohammed supporters”
The Northern Alliance Group further described Sen. Bala Mohammed’s actions as typical of many of Mr. President’s ministers who put their personal interest ahead of their duties and commitment to President Jonathan.
The group said, “We are advising the President not to fall for this cheap ploy as the governors including Governor Yuguda are more important to him at this stage and not ministers like Bala Mohammed who do not have any electoral value in their states.”
