The lingering feud between the Bauchi State governor, Senator Bala Mohammed and the lawmaker representing Bauchi Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Mr. Yakubu Shehu Abdullahi, has deteriorated as the countdown to the next election in the state draws nearer.

The governor is interested in seeking a second term while the lawmaker, whose political clout appears to be growing in the state, is believed to be having a gubernatorial ambition, which may pose a challenge to the governor should he seek a second term.

But this potential clash of political interest has led to serious faceoff between the two political gladiators though the next general election is about two years away. The fireball was set rolling when the lawmaker was surreptitiously barred from entering the governor’s office in Bauchi during this year’s Durbar celebration, while the Emir of Bauchi, Dr. Rilwan Adamu, revoked his title of Wakilin Birnin Bauchi over claims that he ‘disrespected’ the governor in the Emir’s presence.
