Jigawa State Governor Muhammad Badaru Abubakar has berated those accusing him of sabotaging the incoming governor, Malam Umar Namadi, describing the allegation as mischievous and unfounded.
Badaru stated this during a courtesy paid to him in Dutse by one of the chairman, Gerawa Globacom, Alhaji Ahmad Isa Gerawa.
The governor also described those spreading the rumour as disgruntled elements and hypocrites who lost political ground and relevance in APC and Jigawa State affairs.
He said some of his trusted political allies and frontline APC members had been spreading lies against him and some party leaders to create confusion and crisis for achieving their selfish interests.
“It is very unfortunate we have been closing doors with our enemies, discussing government programs, how to build Jigawa and Jigawas with them, unknown to us they were not on the same page with us.
“Many of those bad elements are envious of other people’s progress and the achievements we recorded in government, they became frustrated and classical hypocrites, spreading lies and gossip which created misunderstanding between me and some of our party leaders and government officials.
