APC Confirmed Gov Bindo As Adamawa 2019 Governorship Candidate

Jibrilla Bindo, Governor of Adamawa State, has been confirmed as the flag-bearer of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the 2019 general election.

The Professor Oserheimen Osumbor-led Primary Election Appeal Panel dismissed the two petitions brought before the panel, challenging the governor’s declaration as winner of the October 5 governorship primary election in the state.

Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and Mahmood Halilu Ahmed, better known as Modi, had petitioned the appeal panel against the declaration of Bindo as winner of the primary election.

However, one of the aspirants, Modi, who is also brother to the wife of the president, Aisha Buhari rejected the decision, saying “I will challenge it in a law court”. He also added that he is sure the court will give him justice.

He alleged that members of the panel were either associates of Bindo’s father in-law or Adams Oshiomhole, the APC National Chairman.

Speaking on his appeal brought before the panel, he said: “My appeal was not even read talk less of reading the prayers. The composition of the committee includes Abduwa Bindo’s man and Musa Gwadabe, a close associate of Bindo’s in-law.

“In fact Musa Gwadabe was Adams Oshiomhole’s boss when he was the Minister of Labour. There was a meeting before the primaries between the national chaiman and Bindo’s in-law and Musa Gwadabe, where they struck a deal to compromise the primaries.

“So we are preparing our case to challenge it in court.”
