Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Ahmed Mo­hammed,Bauchi

Eight people have in­di­cated in­ter­est in con­test­ing for the chair­man­ship of the All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC) in Bauchi state.

Daily Trust gath­ered from party stal­warts that the con­tes­tants in­clude for­mer chair­man of the de­funct Congress for Pro­gres­sives Change (CPC), state in­terim or­ga­niz­ing sec­re­tary of the party, Al­haji Aliyu Sai’du, for­mer state chair­man of the de­funct All Nigeria Peo­ples Party (ANPP), Al­haji Sani Shehu Sanin Malam, and Garba Sarki Akuyam, a one time mem­ber of the Bauchi State House of As­sem­bly.

Other con­tes­tants are one time state chair­man of the de­funct CPC and for­mer com­mis­sioner, Al­haji Shehu Ba­rau Ningi, for­mer chair­man of Tafawa Balewa Lo­cal Govern­ment, Al­haji Aminu Tukur, a for­mer com­mis­sioner, Al­haji Uba Ahmed Nana, Com­rade Musa Garba Dass and Al­haji Ab­dul­wa­hab Gambo.

Some of the con­tes­tants are known to have a his­tory of po­lit­i­cal ri­valry among them­selves which an­a­lysts say will make it dif­fi­cult for the party to elect the state chair­man through con­sen­sus.
