To this regard, I am representing the APC in Bauchi South, Bauchi North and Bauchi Central, all APC members in Bauchi state are my people, I am representing them in Abuja and I hope that as we have arranged, these food items would go round all the nooks and crannies of Bauchi state", he said.

Senator Buba explained that though he was elected under the APC, been the only APC senator from Bauchi state widens his representation to cover the whole Bauchi state because his Party members cut across 20 local government areas of the state.
