The Bauchi State Government has seized 22 vehicles from the four wives of the former Governor of Bauchi State, Isa Yuguda, of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP). The seizure was part of the government’s operation to recover all properties that belong to the State.
The Chairman of the new government’s Transition Committee, Senator Mohammed Mohammed, spoke to the media at the State government house regarding the seizures yesterday.
He said, “we have so far, recovered a total of 22 cars from the wives of the former Governor, Isa Yuguda. We recovered 11 cars from his first wife, seven from the second wife, and four from the third wife. We are yet to recover the remaining cars from his fourth wife who is currently out of the country.”
Mohammed reaffirmed the new government’s commitment to clamping down on all corruption from past administrations.
“We will ensure that whoever is in possession of government properties will be forced to return them. We urge public servants and the general public, especially those involved in the disposal and allocation of the property in question, to cooperate with the Committee for the effective discharge of its assignment.”
The new Governor of the State, Mohammed Abubakar, has promised that all funds and property that were allegedly looted during the past administration are returned to the accounts of the State government.
