Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State has said that he is connected to the G-5 governors of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Mohammed while speaking on Wednesday when the governors paid him a visit said despite being “excommunicated” from the group, his relationship with them remains cordial.
The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, Samuel Ortom of Benue State, Abia Governor Okezie Ikpeazu, and Ifeanyi Uguwanyi of Enugu State were in Bauchi on Wednesday to pay a visit to the governor.
Mohammed while speaking said: “The Governors of G5, they call themselves ‘Integrity Group’. I’m supposed to be with them but they excommunicated me for some reasons best known to them. But I’m highly connected with them; each and every one of them. There is no day that I don’t call to speak with each of them.”
He noted that the G-5 governors always look out for others in the Governors Forum, saying, “we have something in common.”
Speaking further, he said: “When you know that you have people behind you, of that caliber, you feel fulfilled.”
