10 governorship candidates withdraw support for Bindow


Governorship candidates of 10 political parties that entered into a pact with Governor Muhammadu Bindow of Adamawa State have withdrawn their support.
The parties comprised of Accord Party, ANP, PPN, CAP, JMPP, MEGA Party, PPA, ZLP, YPP and NCP.
The candidates, under the auspices of New Generation Governorship Forum (NGGF), told newsmen on Wednesday in Yola that they were withdrawing their support for Bindow for his failure to work with their advice for good governance.
Their position was read by the governorship candidate of YPP, who is the Public Relations Officer of the forum, Dr Simon Bawa.
Bawa said they have now commenced their respective campaigns as governorship candidates to fully participate in the election.
“We have, henceforth, collectively withdrawn any support or perceived support which may have been presumed by our supporters and the people of Adamawa State in favour of APC Adamawa State and the re-election bid of Governor Bindow.
“We have begun vigorous campaigns based on our various party manifestoes canvassing for votes for our various parties so we can have the opportunity to deliver the dividends of democracy to the people of Adamawa State,” they said.
Reacting to the development, Commissioner of Information and Strategy, Malam Ahmad Sajoh, described the candidates as selfish and could not work with Bindow who is committed to the welfare of the entire people of Adamawa, rather than bowing to a selfish few.
Sajoh said Bindow has proven his leadership qualities in various sectors and that no amount of blackmail by the candidates would affect the popularity and chance of APC in the state.
Twenty nine political parties are fielding candidates for Adamawa governorship election on March 2.
