Adamawa, vote wisely



Election Polls

SIR: As the rescheduled governorship election finally closes in, it is imperative for the people of Adamawa State to ponder a while and set their minds on voting for the right man as governor of the state.

Adamawa has had it so bad over the years choosing the right person for the job. At the moment, it is lagging behind with basically nothing to show for the existence of the state that was created over two decades ago.

Now, a messiah in no other than Malam Nuhu Ribadu, the former Chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the presidential candidate of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) in the 2011 elections, is aspiring to be governor of the state.

Ribadu has proved to be a tested and reliable administrator who has aversion for corruption in whatever form. In fact, he was the only public servant who vehemently rejected bribe in the history of this country, allegedly offered to him by former Delta State Governor James Ibori to escape prosecution; thus returning the money to the Central Bank.

If the people of Adamawa could vote him as the next governor, the resources of the state are likely to be deployed to areas that would ultimately benefit the state and the people especially in the rural areas yearning for positive dividends of democracy
With the anti-corruption czar at the helms of affairs, Adamawa State would be able to match its contemporaries that are already ahead of it.

The people are distraught with the previous administrations for failing to deliver over the years. Lack of development in the state remains disturbingly high, and only a honest person like Malam Nuhu can do it.

The greatest weapon to effect a change is in the hands of the people of Adamawa State and it is incumbent upon them to vote wisely, much as the destiny of a failed state also rests with the people.
