Immediate past Bauchi State governor, Isa Yuguda has denied allegations that 22 SUV cars were retrieved from his wives as widely publicised in various media organizations, explaining that most of the said vehicles were grounded and retrieved from mechanics and towed to the Government House, and not from the houses of his wives.
This was disclosed by chief press secretary to the former governor, Mr. Ishola Micheal Adeyemi, in a statement issued to newsmen in Bauchi over the week end, pointing out that the vehicles were not officially allocated to the wives of the former governor since they were not government officials, but the vehicles were used as utility vehicles at the pool of the Government House since he was elected as governor in 2007.
He stated that there was no iota of truth in the claim by the recovery committee that the vehicles were retrieved from the former governor’s wives, as the former governor directed that all the vehicles be accounted for and returned to the Government House where they belonged to.
“I challenge anyone with prove that all the vehicles were forcefully retrieved from any of the former Governor wives to come out with such proof and show the entire world to see. What they are doing is just a calculated attempt to smear the image of the former Governor and rubbish the good name of his family, and hence forth the former governor will not take any such further attempt to malign the reputation of his family in the name of vendetta,” he added.
Mr Adeyemi advised all agents o f the present administration to tread with caution in order not to overheat the peaceful atmosphere in the state, advising the incumbent Governor Muhammad Abubakar to call his agents to order by ensuring that it is only the fact that they dish out to the general public.
He assured that the former governor and his family remained part and parcel of Bauchi State and would continue to respect the government, having completed his mandate of eight years successfully without blemish.
