Third term: Confusion in Adamawa APC as Party Elders Ask Captain Buba to Step Down
Crisis has hit the Adamawa State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as party elders are prevailing on Yusuf Captain Buba to drop his third term agenda of returning to the green chamber come 2023.
Trouble started when party elders converged in Hong after signal that Buba is ready to contest for third term in 2023. The elders, The Finder gathered from an informed source, were concerned over the dwindling fortunes of Yusuf Captain Buba in Gombi/Hong race.
Buba, the party elders argued was no longer sellable, hence the need to step down for a candidate who can match PDP candidate in 2023.
“The party elders in Gombi/hong came together in Hong on Friday on discovering that Buba is ready to contest in 2023, the elders reportedly send emissary to Captain Yusuf Buba that they had settled for a fresh candidate that will be more viable in 2023, the source said.
The Finder report that Yusuf Captain Buba has indicates interest to contest in 2023 on the platform of the All progressive congress (APC).
The Adamawa State chapter of APC, The Finder gathered is still in confusion as plans to sell Buba to the people of Gombi/Hong have continued to hit the rocks. Buba’s declining chances have forced the party to begin to reconsider the option of a new candidate who can face any candidate from opposition PDP come 2023.
Some observers of Gombi/Hong politics who spoke to our reporter say the PDP is determined to unseat Rep. Yusuf Captain Buba, hence the desperation to get him out of the house of representative at any cost.
“The APC youths sees Yusuf captain Buba’s third ambition as a threat to the party as fielding him in 2023 will give PDP easy ride to win Gombi/Hong in 2023 as everyone is bitterly complaining about him since 2019 election.
So if they are able to remove Yusuf Captain Buba, it would send a big statement across the polity. That is why the PDP is very desperate to remove Yusuf Captain”, Gabriel Hyela, a political analyst told The Finder on Friday.
As confusion rages in the camp of the Adamawa State APC over a possible replacement for Yusuf Captain Buba, the member representing Gombi/Hong in the House of Representative ahead of 2023 polls.
