The All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, failed to deliver a speech at the presidential campaign rally of the party in Bauchi due to faulty sound system.
The rally which was ongoing at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Stadium, Bauchi, on Monday, ended abruptly when the light went off and could not be restored.
President Muhammadu Buhari, who was also billed to address the rally, could not do so due to the faulty electric system which caused the event to end abruptly.
The light went off shortly after the National Chairman of the APC, Abdullahi Adamu, mounted the podium and began delivering his speech.
Buhari who had arrived in Bauchi to lead the APC presidential and governorship campaign rally ended up giving the party’s flag to Tinubu and the governorship candidate, Rtd Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, without making a speech.
The aircraft conveying the President touched down at the Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa airport, Bauchi around 10:20 am.
He was received by the Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed, who is the Peoples Democratic Party’s candidate and his opponent in the March 11 governorship election, Air Marshal Abubakar.
Others at the airport to receive the President were the APC party chairman, Abdullahi Adamu; the Director-General of the APC Presidential Campaign Council and governor of Plateau State, Simon Lalong; Senate President Ahmad Lawan; Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila; former Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Abdulrahman Danbazzau; Andy Ubah, Governors of Borno, Kebbi and Yobe states, Babagana Zulum, Abubakar Bagudu and Mai Mala Buni, respectively.
