Bindow pledges loyalty to Nyako

The newly elected Governor  of Adamawa State Senator  Mohammed Jibrila Bindow has pledged unalloyed loyalty to ousted Governor Murtala Nyako.

Bindow who spoke to reporters briefly at the end of a stakeholders meeting he had with Nyako loyalists applauded the former governor Nyako for given the platform to contest stressing that he rode on Nyako back to become Adamawa governor.

The Nyako faction stakeholders meeting with Bindow was as a result of a fall-out of the meeting he had with the party executive where former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar was applauded for bindow’s victory.

Bindow debunked the rumors  making the rounds in the state that the All  Progressives Congress has been polarize along Nyako and Atiku camps due to power wranglings.

” There is no faction within the APC, we are one people and there is no difference between Atiku and Nyako. I am an Nyako man” he said.

Alhaji Mijinyawa Kugama, the former state Chairman of People’s Democratic Party and a chieftain of APC whose resident was used as the venue of the stakeholders  meeting hinted reporters that  those that do not work for the APC gubernatorial candidates will not be considered in the scheme of things.

Kugama explained that it was Nyako’s people that worked for Bindow’s victory right from the primary to the final contest where he emerged victorious as the state governor elect.

” Every body knows that it was Nyako’s  people that worked  for Bindow from the first primary to the second primary of the party up to the general elections. God has vindicated Nyako and we won all the three senatorial seat, six house of representatives seats out of eight and 22 state assembly seats out of the 25 in the state.” Kugama said.

Kugama insisted that those people that are coming too close to Bindow after the victory are allow to do so but they should realized that Nyako supporters had already finish the job by making Bindow the governor.

Kugama also pointed out that it was only five out of the 32 state working committee of the party that supported Bindow during the campaigns but after the victory, the rest rushed in to cash on it.

” Every body is free to come but the fact remains that at the appropriate time everybody will be placed in his right position. You can’t reap where you did not sow” Kugama said.
