Gov. Mohammed Bindow of Adamawa on Wednesday promised to build all state government owned roads linking Tuongo Local Government with other parts of the state, if reelected.
Bindow who made the declaration at the launching of Gov. Bindow Campaign for 2019 in Tuongo, said that he would also complete the ongoing electrical installation to connect the area to the national grid.
“I will launch my new project execution in Tuongo upon my return to office. I will ensure the completion of the ongoing Mayo Belwa-Tuogo road rehabilitation project awarded by the Federal Government.
“This zone had been neglected for so long especially in the area of physical infrastructure. I want to assure you that the APC will provide massive infrastructural projects in the area,’’ he said.
While commending the people for voting the party in the last general elections, Bindow urged them to repeat the feat by voting all APC candidates in the coming elections.
Earlier, Mr Felix Tangwami, Director General, Gov. Bindow Campaign Organisation, called on the people of Tuongo to vote for the party to address major development challenges facing the area.
Tangwami said that the governor could not do all things, and gave the assurance that he would build roads, schools and hospitals as well as create jobs and provide others basic needs of the people.
In his remarks, Alhaji Ibrahim Bilal, the state Chairman of APC, said that the commencement of the governorship campaign in Tuongo was a mark of honour to the people of the area.
Bilal, who received 175 PDP members who decamped to APC, urged the people to vote in the party for the consolidation of the good works the administration was carrying out in the area.
Alhaji Usman Birinyi, APC Chairman in Tuongo Local Government Area, appealed to the governor to construct roads linking various communities within the area.
Birinyi assured the governor of massive votes for him during the governorship election.
There was massive turnout of party supporters during the rally while the governor earlier visited the palace of the District Head of Tuongo, Alhaji Mohammed Jaimu.
He solicited his prayers for the peaceful conduct of the general elections and support for his reelection. (NAN)
