Adamama State Gov Bindow Vows To Remain In APC
Governor of Adamawa State, Jubrilla Bindow, has restated his commitment to remain in the All Progressives Congress (APC).
This is coming after former Vice President Atiku Abubakar exit from the APC.
Bindow, in a chat with State House correspondents after meeting behind closed doors with President Muhammadu Buhari, on Tuesday, at the Presidential Villa, in Abuja, said Atiku’s defection could not affect the electoral fortune of the part in the state.
The governor, who said he was in the Villa to brief President Buhari about the security situation in his state, added that Atiku is mature enough to take any political decision.
When asked if he was joining Atiku he said, “Let me talk about Atiku first before myself. The former vice president is more than matured enough to decide whatever he wants to decide for himself.
“As far as I am concerned, I am one of the founding fathers of APC. When I was in the Senate, we were the ones, alongside the current Senate President that worked very hard to ensure that all members of the National Assembly; that we agreed to move to APC, so, I cannot see any reason why, today, that the House I built, that I will leave. So I am in APC for the rest of my life, period.”
Asked about his personal relationship with the Waziri Adamawa, Governor Bindow said, “Not only Waziri, every elder in Adamawa State, as far as I am concerned, I regard them as my parents or elders. So, Waziri remains somebody I respect as a father, and the same with any other elder in the state.”
