Our constituents waiting to attack us in Bauchi over sequence of elections – Senator Wakili


Senator representing Bauchi South Senatorial district, Ali Wakili has said that the three Senators from Bauchi State risk being attacked by their constituents over sequence of elections believed to have been targeted at getting President Muhammadu Buhari out of office in 2019.

In an exclusive interview with DAILY POST in Abuja, the lawmaker who was among those that opposed the controversial sequence of elections, explained that news was making round in Bauchi that they were part of conspiracy to get Buhari out of office in 2019.

The lawmaker described as untrue, assertions that those opposed to the sequence of elections want to hide under presidential election to get back to offices, saying it was God that controls destiny of mankind.

He was emphatic that President Buhari had undiminished popularity in Bauchi, stressing that if referendum was conducted, he would win in the entire state.

“News has gone round in Bauchi that we are planning to get President Buhari out of office in 2019 and oir constituents are waiting for is.

“If you conduct referendum across the three Senatorial districts of Bauchi State any time, Buhari will win and we all understand that perfectly,”‎ he said.

The lawmaker said the people of Bauchi South Senatorial district were averse to the new sequence of elections, noting that he had to do their bidding as their representative.

“Every politician is a localist. Every nationalist is a localist.

“My people are averse to the sequence of elections and if I have to work on what my people said and work on what they want, I have to aggregate my opinion with theirs and do their own first”, Wakili said.
