The newly elected executive members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Adamawa state have been sworn in for three year tenure, even as it vowed to work for the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019 elections.
Both state and local government officials were administered to oath of office Monday at the State party Secretariat in Yola, the state capital.
Speaking on behalf of the state executives, the State Deputy Chairman, Samaila Tadawus, lauded the support of party members in the state, particularly the Governor for the reelection of most of the former executive members to serve the party again.
Tadawus said as experienced members who worked for the victory of the party at all levels during the last general elections, they were more prepared now to repeat the feat.
“We are not going to disappointment the party in working for the reelection of President Buhari and others going to contest on the platform of our great party,” Tadawus said.
Speaking on behalf of party chairmen at the local government level, the elected chairman of Mayo-Belwa local government chapter, Alhaji Babagida Talase, reiterated their commitment to mobilize the grassroots for the party ahead of the general elections.
Talase cited the recent defection of politicians from other parties to APC in the state, adding that the development proved that APC remains a party to beat in the 2019 general election.
“We are the first state to promise Buhari of taking the responsibility of buying him nomination form for 2019, we are committed to keeping that promise to show appreciation for what he did to the state in particular and north east in general in areas of security and empowerment,” Talase said.
