Frontline governorship aspirant in the October 11th governorship bye election in Adamawa state, Dr. Ahmed Mohammed Modibbo, yesterday assured the delegates, billed to participate in the Saturday’s primary election in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), that he would form an all inclusive government if elected as the governor of the state.
Modibbo, in a statement released by his Media Assistant, Julius Toba, said this is imperative considering the diversity and multi-ethnic nature of the state.
The former UBEC Chairman made the promise at a meeting with the 147 PDP delegates drawn from four local governments of Ganye, Jada, Tongo, Ma in Ganye and Mayo-Belwa in Ganye town.
He also met with another 178 delegates from five local governments of Demsa, Numan, Shelleng, Guyuk and Lamorde who are part of the Southern Senatorial zone.
While seeking their votes in Saturday’s primaries election, he reassured that as a foundation member of PDP and a proud son to Adamawa state, he was committed to bringing back the lost glory of the state through a purposeful political leadership.
Modibbo also cautioned the delegates not to allow politicians who had failed them in the past to return to office but instead vote for those who have workable re-engineering development plans for Adamawa like him.
He added that his thirty-five years working experiences in public service would bail the state out from its current economic and infrastructural setbacks.
Modibbo provided satisfactory answers to some questions which emanated from delegates most of which bordered on capital projects, political appointments and women representation for the zone.
Similarly, Alhaji Usman Gindau Yebbi, the southern senatorial district delegate coordinator for Modibbo Campaign Organisation appreciated the delegates for using the forum as an opportunity to present their agitation to Modibbo.
Yebbi expressed the hope that as a zonal coordinator and former Majority Leader in Adamawa State Assemby, Modibbo would soon lead the aspirants back to the southern zone to commission capital projects as an elected governor.
Earlier, at a courtesy call on the monarch of Ganye, Alh. Umaru Adamu Sanda (The Gangwari of Ganye), Modibbo was assured of support from the Ganye Traditional Council at the palace.
The monarch who said the former UBEC boss needed no further introduction in Adamawa state due to his good gestures, however appealed for peaceful conduct among aspirants.
Leader of Ganye Council of Elders, Alh. Julde Gurum Pawo, on behalf of all traditional chiefs and title holders in the town, said a man of Modibbo’s social stature was required to salvage the state.
