Ahead of Saturday’s governorship election, Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr. Boss Mustafa, says misunderstanding among All Progressives Congress stakeholders in Adamawa State is being resolved to ensure that the party retains the state.
There had been trading of blames among APC chieftains in Adamawa over the loss by the party to PDP in the presidential election.
Mustafa told newsmen on Monday in Yola that he had met with the party stakeholders in Abuja and was in Adamawa to further iron out all differences to ensure that the party approach the election as a united family.
“I can assure you that we are doing very much in that regard; we had a meeting in my office and my visit now is in furtherance of the meeting.
“We are going to come out stronger, more united, focused with the sole resolve of retaining the governorship; we’ll retain Adamawa within the family of APC,” Mustafa said.
The SGF said that Buhari supporters should not worry over the loss to Atiku by 32,000 votes in Adamawa, considering the fact that Atiku is from there and had put in a lot to win the state.
“We were not defeated if you look at the scenario; having the opposition candidate from Adamawa, a former Vice President who is known in Adamawa politics for over 20 years.
“We put up a formidable fight to narrow PDP votes to the gap of only 32,000, while our candidate (Buhari) gave PDP a wider gap of 900,000 votes in Katsina.
“And if you look at the entire votes in North East, APC exceeded PDP by two million votes; we got 3.2 million, while PDP got 1.2 million,” Mustafa said.
The SGF assured that the North East, like other parts of Nigeria, would not regret voting for Buhari.(NAN)
