Adamawa APC, Oshiomhole at war


Adams Oshiomhole, APC leader

Alhaji Mahmood Halilu Ahmed, younger brother to wife of President Muhammadu Buhari is set to declare for governorship tomorrow on the platform of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Yola, Adamawa State capital.

A group of Adamawa youths, taking advantage of the Not-Too-Young to run bill, last Wednesday, purchased governorship nomination form for Ahmed.

There are strong indications that with President Buhari’s in-law in the race, Governor Mohammed Jibrilla Bindow, who is yet to pick APC nomination form, may dump the party for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) or Social Democratic Party (SDP).

The Guardian gathered that political scouts are in closed-door talks with both PDP national leadership and SDP to give the embattled governor a safe landing in any of the two political parties, willing to offer him custody.

A top APC chieftain in Yola said Bindow travelling out of the country since last week is a delaying tactic by the governor to ensure that arrangements have been concluded before he returns to join the new party.

When the state APC leadership received the letter of expression of interest by Ahmed last Monday, it hurriedly summoned a meeting at the Government House, where indirect primaries method was adopted without inviting other senior stakeholders in the state. 

Reacting to the controversial meeting in Government House, which was suspected to have been conveyed because of Ahmed, the Speaker of Adamawa State House of Assembly, Alhaji Kabiru Mijinyawa warned Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, APC’s National Chairman to back down on his alleged plan of rigging two million fake membership cards into the party’s national register.
