Bala Mohammed is at the verge of either being impeached or voluntarily relinquishing his seat as the governor of Bauchi state over a recent allegation of fraud against him.
The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) had seized a multi-million naira property structure allocated to Muhammad, a property with rightfully belong to the ministry of agriculture in the state, The Nation reports.
Following this, the APC chapter has called on the governor to resign or face impeachment by the state House of Assembly.
The party said that this ugly development is enough reason for Muhammad to take this path of honour, which is to resign as is done in other more developed countries.
The APC said:
“The APC is appalled by the scandalous reports of the seizure of a property, Plot 298, Wuye District, Abuja, linked to Governor Bala Muhammad (GB) by the ICPC.
“This appalling scandal would warrant a resignation or impeachment in saner climes. Thus, we hereby urge Mr. Governor to take the path of honour.”
