Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed expressed pleasure that his continuing clashes with the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) were not necessary to truncate his ability to rule.
Bala was on Monday affirmed by the Supreme Court and former Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Minister under President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan said he became the most investigated person after he left office.
”‘My opponent has done the right to go to court, we wasted time on court cases but we thank God for everything.

”Investigating the former governor ( Mohammed Abubakar) is not what i have come to do but have always bear in mind that in the course of governance,if there is anywhere the people of Bauchi state have been shortchanged, I won’t let it go.
‘Nobody spared me when I left FCT, I was the most investigated person in Nigeria, and I dare anybody to tell me on any account where I stole money that warranted such investigation but I took it as an expression of accountability.
“It is not my priority to probe my predecessor but if in the course of our investigation, if something is found, definitely we’re not going to spare him’
Mohammed added his courageous personality endeared him to Jonathan, who picked him as a Minister under his administration.
‘I never knew I would become a minister. I never had anything in common with the former President Jonathan. We were not even in the same party. That is why today am completely detribalised. I don’t have any difference in terms of human relations. That is why i will always advise people to believe in God, and be courageous.”
The governor also extended his hands of friendship to the defeated APC candidate, Mohammed Abubakar.
He said the move was to overcome the challenges militating against the progress and development of the state.
