President Muhammadu Buhari said on Monday the Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed, has performed well in the state.
The president stated this at the palace of the Emir of Bauchi, Dr. Rilwanu Sulaimanu Adamu.
He was in the state to attend the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign rally held at Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Stadium in Bauchi.
The president urged politicians across the country to play politics according to the rules of the game and commended the Bauchi State governor for providing a level playing ground for political activities in the state.

He assured the president of his commitment to peaceful elections in the state.
The governor also commended the Federal Government for its sincere fight against insecurity in the North-East, saying the area is gradually regaining its sanity and safety.
