Binta said those who voted for and against her in the presidential and national assembly elections were expressing their interest and that democracy has prescribed for voters to make such choices after every four years.

Binta said, “I want to thank everyone who voted for me in the February 23rd senate elections for Adamawa North Senatorial seat.
“I also appreciate all of the people who were supportive of my candidacy in various ways.
“I commend those who did not support me and pray that they have more reasons to appreciate my contributions for our common good.”
She added that, “I salute all the candidates for their interests, efforts and recommend people, especially women (as we are still underrepresented), to be more involved in active politics.
“I believe that the biggest room in the world is the room for improvement and I am glad that together we will make a difference for God and our beloved country.
