APC Chieftain dumps party

Mohammed Jibril Bindow Mohammed Jibril Bindow

A former Governor of Adamawa State, Mohammed Umaru Jibril Bindow, has resigned from the All Progressives Congress (APC).

In a letter dated Friday, January 20, addressed to the party leader of his Kolere ward in Mubi North Local Government, Bindow declared his departure from the party.

Bindow made no mention of his possible political party switch, rather, he urged all of his supporters in Adamawa to leave the party in order to create a peaceful state.

He asserted that he left the APC because the party has failed to appease disgruntled members in Adamawa State since the 2019 and 2022 general elections and primaries respectively.

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