History was made Thursday in Yola, the capital of Adamawa state as a woman for the first time emerged chairman a political party in Adamawa state.
Honourable Binta Masi Garba, a former member of the House of Representatives, emerged the winner of the state Chairmanship seat of the All Progressives Congress (APC)’s Congress held in Adamawa State.
Hon. Garba who was a three time member of the Federal House of Reps emerged chairperson through a consensus after her two rivals in the contest Mr. P.P Elisha and Reverend Iliya Agowa voluntarily withdrew from the contest.
A voice vote of party members was conducted where they all endorsed Garba’s election as stipulated by party’s constitution.
The Deputy Chairman of the party, Shuaibu Yamusa however emerged unopposed as he was the only person that contested the position.
Out of the 35 available positions only seven were keenly contested as the contestants for other positions were unopposed.
Speaking in an interactive session with the press, the new chairman said democracy was at play as those who did not agree to consensus were given the chance to contest. “The election ended successfully and I want to thank Governor Murtala
Nyako and former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar and other delegates who came from far and near for their cooperation which led to the success of the congress,” Garba said.
She promised that every member of the party would be accommodated, adding that she would make sure that internal democracy and rule law thrive in the party.
Garba also promised to put in place a modality that would ensure all that all aggrieved members who left the party are pacified to come back into its fold for the betterment of all.
She used the opportunity to appeal to insurgents to release the captured female students of the Government Girls’ Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State, calling on the federal government to intensify efforts aimed at releasing the captured students.
