Delegates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) drawn from the Adamawa South senatorial district have assured the former Lagos State Military Governor, Brigadier-General Buba Marwa (rtd), of their support during the forthcoming governorship primary.
While addressing the delegates in Numan, Marwa expressed gratitude to them for endorsing him to contest for the governorship of the state on the platform of the PDP, urging them to keep to their promise.
Marwa urged them to make wise use of their votes by electing an experienced candidate who would resuscitate the decaying infrastructure and uplift the lives of common people in the state as against money bags and political fronts.
Also speaking in Numan, the spokesperson of the delegates, Hajiya Fatima Ornah, had earlier indicated their resolve to rally behind Marwa for a purposeful and people-oriented leadership in the state.
Meanwhile, the chief of Bachama kingdom, Honest Irmiya Stephen, has advised politicians aspiring for governorship of the state to play the game with maturity and fear of God, saying the unity of the Adamawa people was more important than individual ambitions.
Speaking when Marwa visited him at his palace, the royal father appealed to all politicians aspiring for the re-run gubernatorial election in the state to play the game with the fear of God in their minds.
The Hama Bachama said Marwa’s credentials in governance testified to his competence in managing state affairs and that he has the potential to transform Adamawa State.
Marwa had reportedly sought the support of major stakeholders including Prof. Jibril Aminu, Bamanga Tukur, Sadiq Kalu, Ambassador Wilberforce Juta, Dan Sulaiman, General Haldu Hananiya (rtd) and Senator Paul Wampana.
