The leadership of APC in Adamawa State, led by Ibrahim Bilal said it is solidly behind Governor Mohammed Jibrilla’s (Bindow) second term bid. Bilal said all the members of the Adamawa State working committee of APC is unanimously behind the re-election bid of the state governor in the forth coming primaries and urged other contestant to note that there is no vacancy in the government house in 2019. Bindow who made the declaration to seek re-election at the APC state secretariat in Yola the state capital this afternoon, was equally endorsed by all the 21 local government chairmen, Sen. Binta Masi Garba, and all the seven House of Representatives members from the state. Speaking at the occasion, the state chairman of APC, Ibrahim Bilal, commended the governor for his loyalty to the party and promoting the activities of the party. Bilal said, “All the 21chairpersons of our party, all the delegates belongs to the governor.”The entire party structure and the state executives are solidly for the governor. We are all for Bindow whether it is direct primaries or indirect primaries they should all know that we are ready and will return the governor.” In his remarks, Bindow said his government has fared relatively better when compared to past  administration. “This administration under my leadership has not disappointed the people of Adamawa state. I would continue to deliver the dividends of democracy to the people of Adamawa state.” Umaru Jibrilla said, his government has resolved to continue to transform Adamawa state in accordance with the agenda of the APC and the mandates of President Muhammadu Buhari for Nigeria. Jibrilla while making declaration to recontest for a second term as the governor of Adamawa state said his government would fight against tribal and religious sentiments in the state. Jibrilla said, his three years in office was very challenging but his government had been able to clear seven months of salary backlog inherited from the previous government. He blamed the former government for deliberately refusing to pay the salaries even though funds were available. Earlier, the party chairman had said so far only three candidates had bought the party’s nomination forms, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, Governor Bindow and Ahmed Halilu, President Muhammadu Buhari’s in-law who had indicated interest to challenge the state governor. But by the party’s chairman’s position they have been told to steer clear that the party structure will work for Bindow’s emergence in 2019.
