The Chairman, Adamawa United for Change, Alhaji Musa Dasin has come down hard on Gov. Bindow’s traducers that believe that case instituted against the Governor by his opponent will go to their advantage, the chairman told our correspondent in Yola the State capital that, “the people that took Bindow to court are ignorant about the Nigerian constitution, because there are being blinded by their inordinate ambition to rule Adamawa State by hook and crook, one thing want to tell them is simple, what if the result been brandish on social media is different from what Bindow submitted to Inec, we have it on good authority how these desperate politician try in vain to smuggle the social media result to the Governor form with Inec but was resisted, it is laughable to think that the social media result is same with the Governors result with Inec”.
“The undoing of this desperate politicians is to get result from social media and rush to court to get what they could not get during the recent APC primaries in Adamawa State, I read on a news blog that Bindow refuse soft landing, how do you give soft landing to a man who has nothing to fear. I am using this opportunity to call on modi to join hands with Bindow in taking Adamawa State to a greater height”.
