Alhaji Ahmed who is also the Katukan Misau said that there was no difference between the Bauchi Central and the Bauchi South senatorial districts stressing that the six Local Government Areas that comprise the Central District are part and parcel of Bauchi, Ningi and Misau Emirates which cut across the two districts. He described the FCT Minister as the most popular, acceptable and capable candidate that Bauchi State can boast of. He therefore enjoined him to quit the FCT Ministerial seat and return to Bauchi to serve his home people who are in dire need of his sterling leadership.
