2023 Presidency: Running For President Isn’t Easy – Bala Mohammed
Bala Mohammed, the Governor of Bauchi State, says juggling presidential campaign activities with his obligations as a sitting Governor has been difficult.
He did add, however, that his desire to put Bauchi on the map in the center is the reason for his interest in the presidency in 2023.
He said that Bauchi has not been in the forefront of political activity in the nation for a long time, but that it is time to alter that.
Governor Mohammed made the remarks in the Bauchi government house on Friday, when he hosted members of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), media executives, and the Traders and Artisans Association for a Ramadan fast break.
“This Ramadan has been very beneficial, I apologised that I have not been able to do it the way I did it last year because I have had to run up and down trying to be president and at the same time trying to be governor.
“It is not easy to be in all places at the same time but I am doing it for you because we have to put Bauchi on the map.
“There are some more eminently qualified people to do governorship and presidency in Bauchi. We hid behind for too long and it is time for us to accept with humility and present ourselves so that we can provide services to this country.
“We are going to do it with humility and as democrats, whatever happens, it is to the glory of God.”
