In light of the Party situation, Bauchi Governor Bala Mohammed, who has expressed concern about his re-election, is debating whether or not to join the G5. Having hosted the G5 force recently, it is that he is undecided about his next move.
The Bauchi Governor was said to be uneasy about the sentiments expressed by one or two G5 members regarding the Fulani and with the concerns of the internal wrangling in the Bauchi State chapter of the PDP, it is difficult for Mohammed to take a firm stance on the G5 option.
