Ex-Adamawa gov Bindow confirms defection from APC

The immediate past Governor of Adamawa State, Senator Jibrilla Bindow, has disclosed that he has left the All Progressives Congress.

According to Daily Post, Bindow, made this known through a press statement issued on Tuesday evening.

Bindow stated in the letter that an unsolved conflict within the state party forced him to renounce his membership.

Bindow stated in his letter to the Chairman of the APC in his Kolere ward, Mubi North Local Government Area, that the sad events of the 2019 general election and the 2022 governorship primaries were the key reasons for his choice to leave the APC.

Bindow, who was the APC governorship ticket in the 2015 election, lost the election mostly due to dissension within the APC, with many famous members being thought to have worked against him.

Furthermore, Bindow is one of at least two APC governorship candidates who have not entirely accepted the outcome of the APC primary, which produced Senator Aishatu Ahmed Binani as the candidate.

Bindow stated in his resignation letter that the absence of genuine reconciliation with disgruntled stakeholders inside the Adamawa State party since the previous governorship primary has made him uneasy in the party.

He stated, “While thanking you and the party, I wish to also inform you that my faithful supporters will be joining me across the state in leaving the party to Champion a cause of building a harmonious Adamawa State that will enshrine unity in our diversity towards a collective development as a people.”
