The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) Boss Mustapha has commended the conduct of the presidential primaries in Adamawa State and called on the people of the state to rally around President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC in order to secure the future of the country.
Mustapha said the APC was the only party in the country with the capacity and vision to take Nigeria to its desired future.
The SGF noted that some local governments of Adamawa, including Michika and Madagali, could not hold primaries elections in their area in 2015 due to the Boko Haram insurgency, but that the APC government has since stabilized the country and is working hard to address the other security issues still lingering.
“We are the only party with the right vision for Nigeria and we have demonstrated the will and determination to diversify our economy and boost our local industries,” Mustapha said.
“The people of Adamawa have benefited immensely from this government and have seen that Buhari is a man of his words and is committed to securing the future of Nigeria with his anti-corruption drive.”
Meanwhile, in Mubi, state governor Bindo Umaru Jibrilla said that the President would easily defeat any candidate from any party in 2019 general elections.
Jibrilla made the declaration after casting his vote in the APC presidential primary election held at Kolere ward in Mubi North local government area of the state.
He pointed to the development programmes undertaken by the Buhari administration as a testament in favour of re-electing the president.
The Adamawa governor directly attributed to the president the peaceful condition of the North East, saying that the large primary voter turnout indicated the overwhelming acceptance of the president’s performance.

An APC gubernatorial aspirant, Mahmood Halilu Ahmed, who participated in the primaries in the city center of Yola town, was flanked by a large crowd of supporters as he endorsed the president.
He said that the country’s local economy and industries have been strengthened, as Nigeria continues to produce its own food, revamp its agricultural sector and empower its citizens with social investment programmes.
