Yuguda denies leaving debts to new gov of Bauchi State

Former governor of Bauchi State, Isa Yuguda, has denied bequeathing to his successor, Governor Mohammed Abubakar, a debt of N125bn as alleged.
Yuguda made the denial even as he warned the new governor not to reverse any decision he met in office.
The former governor, who stated this in a telephone interview with newsmen in Bauchi on Sunday, said that the allegation that he left the huge debt behind was false.
Abubakar had in his maiden broadcast to the people of the state, two days after his inauguration, said that he inherited a debt of over N125bn from the immediate past administration of Yuguda.
But Yuguda on Sunday said, “Any public servant that has worked under me and I handed anything to him and I signed and approved it, that approval is legal and Abubakar has no right to reverse that approval. Also, anything that I allocated to any individual, group or association remains legal so Mohammed Abubakar does not have any right to reverse such.
“If Abubakar thinks he can reverse what I have done, he has made a mistake because I have the right as an executive governor elected by my people to take decision on their behalf, so any person that is aggrieved should go to court.
“The governor should be called to order because he has no right to upturn my own decisions and they don’t have the right to change anything or harass anybody within the state.”
On the N125bn debt, the ex-governor however said all the loans he handed over to Abubakar were not up to N80bn, including the loan he said he inherited from his predecessor, Adamu Mu’azu, the immediate past national chairman of the Peoples democratic Party.
Politicians sha.. I don't take their words serious, ever!
