Gov. Bala Mohammed of Bauchi on Saturday disclosed that his administration would have been paralysed without the help of the EFCC.
He told journalists in an interaction to mark his first anniversary that the EFCC helped his government to recover N11billion.
According to him, most of the projects embarked upon by his administration were kickstarted by the money.
Bala also told journalists that he was battling a gang-up by people he had worked with before clinching the governorship position.
”We are doing our best and we are not doing it to be praised; we are doing it because we have to do it so as to free resources.
“My commissioners are complaining but we have to make sacrifices because we are bogged down by a feeling of gratitude to God and the people of Bauchi for what they have done for me.
“I’m the most investigated and denigrated person but the people have faith in me. I’ve faced opposition; even now I’m suffering from a gang-up.
“A gang-up by even people that I have worked with to come to this level,” said Mohammed.
The governor further stressed that he had no ‘god-father’ and no liability on his head to service anybody.
Mohammed said he had no partisan consideration in discharging his duties
