The Governor of Adamawa State, Jibrilla Bindow, has vowed not to defect from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The governor made this known in a statement by his Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Macaulay Hunohashi over the weekend.
Bindow, who described President Muhammadu Buhari as the best thing to ever happen to Nigeria, said his APC administration has performed creditably well and he sees no reason to quit the party.
He said, “Over the last three years, we have shown commitment to the yearnings of the good people of Adamawa State to improve their standard of living through progressive implementations of agriculture, health, education, peace and security, water supply, youth and women empowerment programmes as well as infrastructural development.
“And what is especially pleasing for me is that the people of the state recognise and appreciate our efforts to make Adamawa a better place for them and therefore they have supported this administration in every way possible.
“At the national level, President Buhari has done tremendously well for this country in security, economy, fight against corruption, employment, health, education and infrastructural development.
“Like I have said many times in the past, President Buhari is the best thing to happen to this country. He means well for Nigeria. He is passionate about this country. He is trying to get a great future for Nigerians so what reasons do I have to defect?”
He accused some unscrupulous politicians of trying to cause mischief by spreading the rumour of his purported defection.
“These reports are plotted by some politicians who desperately want him to join the opposition. They should dump the opposition parties and join me in APC as they are so fixated to be in the same party with me.
“They are always welcome to join me in the APC”.
