Bauchi state commissioner of youths and sports Alhaji Adamu Manu Soro has refuted a video Twitter clip depicting a person alleged to have been canvassing votes for the PDP in the state prior to the Saturday governorship and house of assembly elections in the country.
While refuting the report in an interview with some journalists in Hausa language, the commissioner expressed worry about how it named him as the person in the Twitter clip, threatening to take legal action against the medium of communication that implicated him in the report.
Our correspondent in Bauchi reports that since Friday a Twitter clip where mentioned that a commissioner in Bauchi was depicted buying votes for the PDP from the electorate ahead of Saturday’s polls which clip was globally being watched on the Twitter clip pages.
He said, “My name is honourable Adamu Manu Soro, commissioner for youths and sports development in Bauchi state”.
“This Twitter video clips going around globally, whoever knows Bauchi state, knows that Governor Bala Mohammed has performed creditably well in the past three and a half years in the execution of capital projects, hence it is naive for someone to allege vote buying for the ruling PDP in the state.
“I’m not the one in the said video clips going around globally, so anyone or medium of communication published a story from the video clips does so to defaming my image and refutation in the good looking eyes of the public, and by God’s grace I’ll take a legal action against that”.
