The crisis rocking the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Adamawa State yesterday deepened as parallel activities unveiled at the party’s campaign rally.
This follows the boycott of Governor Mohammed Umaru Bindow and President Muhammadu Buhari’s campaign committee by key supporters of the president.
Among those who were absent at the inauguration were the group headed by former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) Mr. David Babachir Lawal and other senior stakeholders in the central zone.
Others who were absent at the inauguration include former governorship aspirant, Markus Gundiri, Secretary to Government of the Federation (SGF) Mr. Boss Mustapha, Senatorial candidate for central zone, Aisha Ahmed Dahiru, and former governorship aspirant, Mr. Halilu Modi among others.
Babachir told The Guardian in a text message that he was not invited to attend the occasion.
While speaking at the occasion, Bindow said his re-election and that of President Buhari would be in the best interest of the state and country, as it would help to consolidate the achievements of their first term.
He said his projects are the major campaign points that his opponents cannot dispute, adding that his re-election by the people is unstoppable.
Bindow, who claimed that workers in Adamawa were not, owed salaries, however promised to pay the six months arrears to local government and health workers this week.
He said: “I did not own Adamawa workers salaries, I borrow N5 billion to clear all salaries arrears. This week, all workers will get their salaries, even as I’m the only governor in Nigeria who can borrow money to pay salaries.”
