Mohammed in a tweet, said: “Today, hoodlums attempted a raid on the #COVID19 palliative warehouse in Bauchi State. My Chief of Staff was informed and he ordered the warehouse to be opened. They saw it was empty, and they turned back. And that’s because we shared everything to beneficiaries as at when due.”

According to him, for accountability, when the state started distribution months ago, he ensured that a high powered committee that included him, his deputy, the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state and Chairmen of all political parties in the state, including traditional rulers, and others to monitor the exercise.

He added: “The core of my mandate remains the crucial drive to give Bauchi State citizens a better prospect and more excellent opportunity for a prosperous life. We are doing this, and we will continue to do more.”
