JUST IN: Confusion in Bauchi as APC rally ends suddenly



……Buhari departs without making speech.

The All Progressives Congress’s campaign event for president in Bauchi State was cut short due to a broken sound system.


On Monday, the demonstration at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Stadium in Bauchi came to a sudden halt as the light failed to come on again.

Shortly after Abdullahi Adamu, the APC’s national chairman, climbed the podium and started speaking, the light went out.


Major General Muhammadu Buhari (ret. ), the president, and his entourage were forced to leave the gathering right away.

To lead the APC’s presidential and governorship campaign rallies, Buhari had traveled to Bauchi.


Around 10:20 am, the plane carrying the President landed at Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Airport in Bauchi.

The governor of Bauchi State, Bala Mohammed, who is running for governor on March 11 against Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar for the Peoples Democratic Party, welcomed him.


The APC party chairman, Abdullahi Adamu, the governor of Plateau State and director general of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, Simon Lalong, the president of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, the speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, the former chief of the defence staff, Gen. Abdulrahman Danbazzau, Andy Ubah, and the governors of Borno, Kebbi, and Yobe states, Babagana Zulum, Abuba.

Following a courtesy visit to the palace of Dr. Rilwanu Adamu, the Emir of Bauchi, Buhari then traveled to the Sir Tafawa Balewa stadium, the location of the campaign event.


At the event, Buhari was supposed to formally introduce the APC candidates to the voters in Bauchi. He then had to leave for Lagos, where he would start his two-day business visit.

Buhari will announce a number of projects in Lagos, such as the Lekki deep sea port, the blue line rail project that would connect Marina to Mile 2 (on the mainland), the 32-metric-ton Imota Rice Mill in Lagos, and the 18.75-kilometer Eleko to Epe T Junction express route.


Others include the Blue Line Rail Phase 2 Groundbreaking and the John Randle Center for Yoruba Culture and History (Mile 2 to Okokomaiko).
