The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has released particulars of 28 gubernatorial candidates in Adamawa State, amidst anxiety over who would emerge as the All Progressives Congress (APC) flag bearer.
Plethora of petitions against the candidature of Governor Muhammadu Jibrilla Bindow, who was declared winner of the primary election had generated uncertainty about who will make the final list. Jibrilla emerged as the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) amidst contention over his O level school certificate.
The INEC published credentials contained Jibrilla’s testimonial from Government Secondary School, Miango, rather than the WAEC certificate as presented by candidates of other parties and his trauducers.
Reacting to the development, the Chairman, Adamawa United for change, Alhaji Musa Dasin told this news medium that “ Almighty God has put Bindow’s opponent both in the APC primary and candidates of other political parties to shame, I said it before that nothing will come of the certicifate allegations level against the Governor by his opponent come 2019, we have been vindicated and we thank the good people of Adamawa for standing by us in this trying time, and by special grace of God, Bindow will emerge victorius come 2019”.
