‘There’s no genuine reconciliation’, says Bindow as he resigns from APC

Published

on

Jibrilla Bindow, a former governor of Adamawa state, has resigned his membership from the All Progressives Congress (APC).

In a letter dated January 20 and addressed to the APC chairman in the Kolere ward of Mubi north LGA of Adamawa, Bindow cited the lack of “genuine reconciliation” of aggrieved members in the party after the 2019 general election and the 2022 primary elections.

The former governor lost the party’s governorship ticket to Aisha Binani, a senator representing Adamawa central.

Bindow said his decision to leave the APC was not an easy one.

“I wish to formally notify you of my decision to resign as a member of the All Progressive Congress party (APC) effective from 20th January 2023,” he said in the letter copied to Abdullahi Adamu, national chairman of the party.

“This decision is not an easy one but after deep prayers and wide consultations with my family, stakeholders, and faithful followers across the state and country at large, I have decided to resign my membership.

“The decision is also a result of a lack of genuine reconciliation of aggrieved stakeholders within the party in Adamawa state since the unfortunate events of the 2019 general elections and the 2022 primary elections.

“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 so as to champion the cause of building a harmonious Adamawa that will enshrine unity in our diversity towards our collective development as a people.”

Ahmadu Fintiri, incumbent governor of Adamawa, and Binani are among the candidates in the race for the government house in the state.

The Southern and Middle Belt Leaders Forum (SMBLF) has endorsed Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP).

The decision was announced on Thursday in a communique read by John Nwodo, the immediate past president-general of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, at the end of a meeting of the forum in Abuja.

The SMBLF, chaired by Edwin Clark, is made up of leaders from the middle-belt area, as well as groups including the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Afenifere, and the Pan Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF).

“That we give our unalloyed vote of thanks to our father and leader, Chief Edwin Clark, for his boldness, his sagacity, his tenacity, and his relentlessness in pursuing the aims and aspirations of this organisation,” the communique reads.

“That we warn all those who want to change the hands of the clock of Nigeria by doing anything that will derail a peaceful transition to the next civilian government of this country, that we shall rise like one man in defence of the ballot box and that Nigerians must go to vote.

“This we have resolved today and we enjoin other Nigerians who do not belong to our organisation to join us in realising this for the betterment of Nigeria: Peter Obi is your son and he is the rock upon which Nigeria will stand.”

Also in attendance at the SMBLF meeting were Ayo Adebanjo, Afenifere leader; and Bittus Pogu, president of the Middle Belt Forum.
