After the general election, the party setted up a panel to study and appraise our performance and make recommendations. Thecommittee is chaired by the Governor of Bauchi state, Alhaji Bala Mohammed work is still in progress. Same thing was done when we lost previous general election when we setted up Sen. Ike Ekweremadu committee to look into why we lost. It was from that report that the party took action towards 2019. The same accord, we must study our last outing before looking ahead. We can’t be talking of zoning when we have not accertain how we performed in the last election.”
