Also speaking at the campaign ground, Chairman of the Southern zone campaign council, Senator Ahmed Barata, urged the people of Toungo to vote for president Muhammadu Buhari, Senator Bindow and all APC candidates candidates in the forthcoming election.
Barata reminded the people that the ongoing construction of the Mayobelwa to Toungo road awarded by the federal Government and numerous water and other projects executed by the Bindow administration are testimonies that there are more goodies in the offing beyond 2019.
The occasion attracted top politicians from the Adamawa South Senatorial District who converged on Toungo to reiterate to the people why the All Progressives Congress should be allowed to continue leading the country beyond 2019.
