The Crown Prince of Adamawa Emirate, Alhaji Mustafa Barkindo, has advised residents of the state against voting for presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2019, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
Barkindo, who is also Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs in Adamawa, made this known Sunday while inaugurating some coordinators of the All Progressive Congress (APC) to mobilise support for President Muhammadu Buhari and Governor Jibrilla Bindow at the grassroots.
Atiku is the Waziri of Adamawa and second-in-command to Barkindo’s father and Lamido of Adamawa, Alhaji Muhammadu Aliyu Musdafa.
Despite this, the commissioner said Buhari and Jibrilla would win the presidency and governorship elections in the state in 2019.
Addressing the coordinators in Yola, the Adamawa State capital on Sunday, Barkindo said, “I am confident that Buhari would defeat Atiku Abubakar in Adamawa State. That is why we are here to plot this teaming squad to go out and deliver every unit in Adamawa State for Buhari/Bindow.”
He added, “We must work hard to give victory to Buhari in Adamawa State and Governor Bindow.”
He pleaded with the electorate “not to waste their votes on any person, but vote Buhari and Bindow only. They are the only people who can guarantee the future for Adamawa people because of many development projects embarked on by Buhari and Bindow in the last three and half years.”
