A group working for the actualization of the presidential ambition of Governor Isa Yuguda of Bauchi State, the National Concerned Professionals, has said it would soon commence a nation-wide consultation.
The group, made up of intellectuals rooting for the Bauchi governor, noted that Yuguda’s presidential bid had received ‘enormous support’.
Coordinator of the group, Dr Muhammad Chindo, disclosed this when associations of market men and women from all parts of the country paid him a solidarity visit, a statement by the group stated.
According to Chindo, Yuguda has achieved a lot in the areas of education, grassroots empowerments and developments and proactive security measures, but lamented that they were grossly under reported in the media.
Chindo said the professional organization “would soon embark on nationwide consultation with key political stakeholders based on the enormous support it had received pertaining the clamour for Yuguda’s presidency”.
The statement said more interest and political groups have endorsed Yuguda to contest the 2015 presidential primaries of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
