Manasseh said the senator was one of the chieftains of the party who worked hard to deliver his Local Government Area, Balanga to his party during the Governorship and State Assembly Elections.

He stated that Amos was involved in a grassroots campaign for the APC and sponsored over 1, 000 youths and supporters to Pantami stadium during the Presidential campaign in the state.
The media aide said the claim by Malam Ali Kachalla, APC chairman of Balanga and other party executives in the LG against Sen Amos, was “baseless and unfounded” and was made to tarnish his good image.
“The senator has demonstrated absolute loyalty to APC and its leadership from ward to national level.
“It is on record that Sen. BK Amos served the party even at the national level where he held the position of the Secretary Finance committee in the Presidential Campaign Council (APC-PCC) and he toured around the states for the campaign rallies including Gombe.
“Similarly, the senator donated his personal house in Bambam to serve as the zonal party office which was acknowledged and inaugurated by the zonal party officials APC North Eastern States,” he said.
Manasseh said the senator was unfairly treated by the investigation committee for not granting him audience before publishing “whatever allegations someone or group of individuals have against him in spite of his position as the sitting senator.”
He said that though the committee set up at the senator’s ward was yet to formally serve him an invitation, we “assure the committee that Sen. Bulus will consider the invitation and respond appropriately.”

Our Correspondent reports that on Tuesday, the Chairman of APC, Bambam Ward, Balanga Local Government Area, Muhammad Kaka alleged that Sen. Bulus worked against the interest of the party during the polls.
Kaka inaugurated a 5-man committee to investigate the allegation and report to the ward executives within 14 days.
