The immediate-past governor of Adamawa State, Senator Muhammad Umar Jibrilla Bindow, has quit the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Bindow officially resigned his membership in the party via a letter dated January 20, 2023, addressed to the APC chairman of Kolere Ward, Mubi North local government area, and Adamawa State.
The former governor, who goes by the traditional name “Sardaunan Mubi,” said that he decided to leave APC because there hadn’t been any real reconciliation between angry party members in Adamawa State since the party lost the 2019 general elections and after the 2022 APC primary elections.
“The decision is also a result of a lack of genuine reconciliation of aggrieved stakeholders within the party in Adamawa State since the unfortunate events of the 2019 general elections and the 2022 primary elections.”
While thanking you and the party, I wish to also inform you that my faithful supporters will be joining me across the state in leaving the party so as to champion the cause of building a harmonious Adamawa that will enshrine unity in our diversity and contribute to our collective development as a people,” Bindow stated in the letter.
