Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed, has suddenly found himself in that quagmire. It has to do with whether or not he will stand for President in 2023.

In a report in the Blueprint newspaper of 12 September 2021 titled, One Month After: Bala Mohammed Fails to Declare Presidential Ambition, one Najib Sani Adamu, called the Governor out for his delay, in fulfilling an earlier pledge, to respond to the sundry groups that have been calling on him to run for President.

Of all the groups, I reckon that the most prominent is the Northern Youths Elders Council led by Comrade Eliot Afiyo. That is not to ignore the many other groups that have cast their lot with Bala Mohammed for the prized position of 2023.
