Three days to the kickoff of the much-awaited 2019 general elections Gov. Muhammed Umaru Jibrilla, who is seeking reelection on March, says he is focused and remains unshakeable as the sole candidate of the All Peoples Congress, APC, in Adamawa State.
A statement by the governor’s Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Macauley Hunohashi, said the incumbent governor remained the people’s choice, having been given the mandate to fly the flag of the APC at the state primaries stage, which was widely adjudged to be free, fair, transparent, and very credible.
Quoting the governor, Mr. Hunohashi noted that the people of Adamawa State were happy with “the pragmatic steps we have made to reclaim our denied glory, especially in the areas of basic infrastructure such as quality road network, primary and secondary healthcare, educational system, electricity, water supply, skills acquisition for women and youths, peace and harmony, and many more.”
The governor cautioned his detractors not to peddle rumours, malicious fiction, and unguarded comments to create confusion and thus sway the electorate from doing the right thing.
“I urge the good people of Adamawa State to join me in the quest to rescue the state from the tight grip of unpatriotic elements who hold the erroneous belief that they call the shots.”
The statement further quoted the governor as saying, “The Almighty God is my godfather and He is the one that gives power to whom He wishes. I, therefore, remain unshakable and no amount of casting of slur on my integrity, political antics, and rantings from any quarters can derail my mission or blur my focus.”
Having gone to 19 of the 21 local government areas for his campaign, Sen. Jibrilla wishes to register his appreciation for the show of love and solidarity, the statement added.
“I, therefore, urge all of you to remain steadfast as we shall celebrate the people’s victory for the presidential and governorship elections as well as other elections for our APC candidates.”
