The Adamawa State chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC) says it will participate in the Oct. 11 governorship bye-election in the state.
In a communiqué issued yesterday at the end of a two-day stakeholders meeting, the APC expressed readiness to reclaim “the stolen mandate of the party”.
The former governor, Murtala Nyako, who was impeached by the House of Assembly, is an APC member.
The party urged all members to be united and reconcile with one another for its success in the forthcoming poll.
The communiqué, read by Mr. Phineas Padio, the party’s Public Relations Officer in the state, said the Adamawa leadership of APC had agreed to embrace the political reality in the state.
“The APC regrets the unfortunate removal of Nyako. The party also resolved that while the pending legal issues subsist, the party’s leadership has agreed to embrace the existing reality”.
“The meeting acknowledged the tremendous support and goodwill enjoyed by the party across the state”.
The communiqué called on major stakeholders to ensure the survival and operational viability of the party by providing the necessary logistic and material support to it.
It also said that the meeting received situation reports from the 21 local government areas of the state, adding that the party was healthy and vibrant.
