2015: I will consult over governorship race, says Ngilari

Adamawa State Governor Bala Ngilari being sworn in.

Governor Bala Ngilari of Adamawa State said he would consult and pray before taking final decision on whether to contest for the governorship of the state in 2015 or not.

Mr. Ngilari said this on Wednesday in Yola, when he received a governorship nomination form purchased for him by the Adamawa Progressive People Movement which urged him to shelve his senatorial ambition and go for governorship.

“I am not preparing for this; my intention was to go to the Senate, but I will pray and consult,” Mr. Ngilari said.

“Give me time to consult and pray to God to give us direction. I want to assure you that I will do what is right.”
Earlier, the leader of the group, Lawrence Ngbale, said the group had collected contributions across the state of over N150 million, out of which, it bought the form for Mr. Ngilari and would use the balance for campaign.

“This is a popular project by the people of Adamawa who contributed over N150 million.

“You don’t need to spend a kobo as this is the people’s project and they are ever ready to sponsor it.”

TMr. Ngilari, who served as Deputy Governor to impeached Murtala Nyako, was returned as substantive governor following an Abuja High Court ruling that said his purported resignation as deputy governor was null and void. (NAN)

    Such naïveté.The military is the glue that binds the Niger-arean imperium. Cease this puerile comparison to ‘decent’ societies . Niger-area is sui generis. And yes, General Buratai is his C in C’s instrument for the maintenance of order. Therefore, it is entirely in order to interpret an altercation with him as one with the President.

    It’s easy for you to sit in Cornelle University and condemn women and men who lay down their lives to ensure that we are safe. To ensure that, some mad people whether OPC, Biafraud, Shiites, Bokobastards do not suddenly take over the roads when they are tired with the women they have and need to look for more.
    These soldiers have just succeeded in releasing more than 3,000 Nigerians from the hands of those you have been publicizing. As far as I am concerned, we will not wait for you to attack the president before we react. If you feel so concerned, join them, send your daughters to march with them and attack me while passing through to Zaria from Kaduna and see what happens.

    Very dumb letter aimed at arousing sentiments against the Nigerian Army. The writer should have told the world what the army should have done in such circumstance. Millions of innocent Igbo, women and the elderly were killed/massacred by the Nigerian state during the civil war. Nigeria has never apologized or called it a genocide. Radical Islamic groups in Northern Nigeria have killed millions of Christians and Southerners in the North for decades and successive governments, most of them led by Northerners did not bring them to justice. The Shiites crossed the line by barricading the road and obstructed movement by the COAS. They paid for their foolishness, lawlessness and refusal to recognize the power of Nigerian government and its institutions.
