The Adamawa South People’s Forum on Tuesday, responded to critics of Senator Mohammed Jibrilla Bindow saying that so far, the Governor’s performance and contribution to Adamawa State is commendable.
The group in a statement issued on Tuesday, signed by the coordinator, Mr. Francis Menetebe and 40 other members, faulted those who criticised the governor, describing them as street demagogues.
The statement said that his critics had neither experience nor the grit to govern for the betterment of the people.
The coordinator in the statement pointed out that the unfounded criticisms will not cause well meaning electorates in the State from voting for their Choice, Sen. Mohammed Jibrilla Bindow.
“We the members of the Adamawa South People’s Forum have in recent times become mortified at the penchant of some persons masquerading as candidates and contenders for the Adamawa governorship seat to pursue a campaign of calumny against the aspiration of Senator Jibrilla Bindow.
“Some of these candidates who have no structure or base required to win elections comfortably, prefer to throw mud undeservedly at the most popular candidate, with the intention of getting a non privileged response from such a candidate.
“Thankfully, the person of Senator Bindow is much focused on telling the people what he has so far achieved and why he needs another term.
“However as stakeholders in this senatorial district, we would be failing in our duties if we fail to respond to these candidates.
The group pointed out that the senator Mohammed Jibrilla Bindow has re positioned the State to will benefit the people, with the most recent being the taking over of the electrification of Toungo and Demsa in the southern senatorial district.
“Senator Bindow has developed Adamawa State than any other candidates contesting against him today, all his opponents contesting against him are street demagogue.
“In terms of projects, Sen. Bindow has facilitated the construction of classroom blocks, the provision of boreholes and over head tanks in the seven local government areas that make up the zone for the provision of portable water to communities lacking them.
“Senator Bindow has also provided street lights to 22 communities as well as empowered over 809 youths via his Empowerment programmes meant to bequeath to each youth skills as well as the tools and funds to excel in several businesses,” he said.
He therefore called on the critics to focus on issues rather than embarking on campaign of calumny.
