Adamawa Bye-election: Don’t be intimidated by security operatives -APC Chairman urges voters


By, Austin Ajayi

The chairman of the Adamawa State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Binta Masi, has urged voters not to be intimidated by the presence of the security operatives that might be deployed during the coming gubernatorial bye-election in the state.

The chairman made the appeal during the party’s campaign rally at Mayo-Belwa, the home town of former Governor Murtala Nyako.

She urged the people to remain resolute as the journey towards clinching power from the ruling party was not for the faint hearted.

She said only determination and perseverance would lead to success considering the desperation of the ruling party.

“We are happy with the mammoth crowd and reception from this area which is similar to what we had witnessed in areas so far visited. We urge you to translate your support into votes on election day and you must not be intimidated by anybody including the compromised ones among the security personnel that may allow themselves to be used by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP to rig.

“Today, my home town Michika is still under the control of Boko Haram and if anybody feels like using security personnel for something, that something should be the fight against Boko Haram,” Mrs. Garba said.

In his speech, a party chieftain in the area, Umaru Kugama, said the area had no other party order than the APC and would give it the highest number of votes come October 11.

“Mayo-Belwa is the home of our father and leader, Admiral Murtala Nyako; Nyako has endorsed APC and that’s where we belong. As for those who betrayed Nyako, for sure, disappointment awaits them very soon,” Mr. Kugama said.

In his address, the candidate of the APC, Mohammed Jibrilla, also lauded the people of Mayo-Belwa for their support for him and the party and assured that he would not disappoint them.
