As the APC local government congresses hold across the country, Governor of adamawa State, Sen Mohammed Umar Jibrilla, was one of the delegates who voted at his local government area of Mubi North.
Voting started at about eleven, Saturday Morning, in an orderly manner.
Shortly before casting his ballot, Sen Jibrilla admonished delegates to exhibit the spirit of sportsmanship in the process.
He went philosophical by saying, “i’ve not annointd any body as candidate because it is God that gives power, and he gives it to whom he wishes”.
He noted that, “president Buhari had earlier adviced us to ensure that only credible aspirants are elected, so that they can provide quality representation”.
Sen Jibrilla later said in an interview that he was satisfied with the outcome of the congress, urging those that emerged victorious to, “make the party proud and those that lost to remain committed to the ideals of the party”.
Fifty five delagates drawn from the eleven wards participated at the election which produced the local government executive and three national delegates from each ward.
On his way out of Mubi, the Governor pulled a surprise visit at his favourite suya spot to have a taste of the sumptuous roast meat.
