From Umar Dankano, Yola
Adamawa chapter of the Association of Local Government of Nigeria (ALGON) has said that the chairman of Gombi Local Government, Alhaji Umar Rufai who decamped to APC over the weekend is on his own.
Speaking to newsmen on the development, the state chairman of ALGON who is also the chairman of Fufore Local Government Council, Alhaji Sahabo Aliyu, also said that the claim by Rufai that some local government chairmen would soon join him was not true.
Aliyu said Rufai’s decision was personal and not the position of the local government chairmen in the state.
“Rufai is on his own; I want to assure the people of Adamawa that all the remaining 20 Local government chairmen in the state are still in PDP and have no plan to move to any political party.
“We are all elected under PDP and our loyalty is for PDP and his Excellency, Gov Bala Ngilari who is our new leader in the state”, Aliyu said.
Aliyu urged the people of Adamawa to continue to support the state PDP led government of Ngilari which he said was committed to ensuring justice and fairness to all.
It will be recalled that the chairmen who were elected under PDP in 2011 defected with former Gov Murtala Nyako to APC and later return to PDP when Nyako was impeached and Ahmadu Fintiri took over as Acting Government.
