Marwa, Gundiri Moves to Stop Nyako from Controlling APC Structure in Adamawa
The bid by the governor of Adamawa state, Rear Admiral Murtala Nyako to take over the structure of the All Progressives Congress in Adamawa state has ran into murky waters as two former gubernatorial aspirants in Adamawa State, Brigadier General Buba Marwa (rtd) of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), Mr. Markus Gundiri of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) move to stop the governor.
