I will accept outcome of the election, says Bauchi governor
The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Governor of Bauchi State, Bala Mohammed has said that he would accept the outcome of the ongoing governorship election in the state.
He also commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for the smooth voting process at his home town, Yelwa Duguri, Alkaleri local government area.
Mohammed made the commendation shortly after casting his vote at polling unit 008 Bakin Dutse, Duguri, saying “INEC has done very well as far as I’m concerned, whether electronic or manual, you can see the process, it’s very peaceful, very orderly.
“As soon as we came they didn’t have to snap me, I just thumb printed my finger and it popped up my picture and the official clicked. That didn’t take us up to 10 minutes. I think INEC has done well.”
The Governor also lauded the electorate for their massive turnout in the area, saying that “the more the crowd, the more his chances” of winning but he wouldn’t want a prediction of the outcome.
He said that he observed that people were joyous and ready to exercise their franchise and noted that “this is the kind of process we are hoping to have all over the country, without acrimony, without any conflict, we are grateful to God. We are ready to accept the outcome.
“We will continue to do anything as a state that the election is peaceful and by the grace of God is acceptable.”
