The Bauchi State governor, Bala Mohammed has raised an alarm over an alleged plot to rig during the 2023 general election.

Naija News reports the governor said he is aware that some agents are trying to use federal might to rig him out of office next year at the polls.

Mohammed, who is a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) seeking to return to the office for another term of four years, said he knows President Muhammadu Buhari is a just person and he won’t give in to such pressure.

Mohammed, who said the elements at work won’t succeed, noted that the president has assured a free, fair and credible election.

The governor made the remark on Sunday when he received some members of the Bauchi State Christian Community who paid him a Christmas visit.

The Christian community was led on the visit by the Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria in Bauchi, Abraham Damina.

“There are people who buy votes, and there are those planning to rig the election using federal might but I know President Buhari is just, and he has already assured us that he would allow the people to elect whom they want.

“Let us not mind all this doubting Thomas’s. We must be able to come together, to stick together. Our own responsibility is Bauchi, even though we believe in the federation. When Bauchi works, everywhere will work. Let us work together. Let us move together in unity,” the governor stated.
