Gov. Bala Ngilari of Adamawa said he would consult and pray before taking final decision on whether to contest for the governorship of the state in 2015 or not.
Ngilari said this on Wednesday in Yola, when he received a governorship nomination form purchased for him by the Adamawa Progressive People Movement which urged him to shelve his senatorial ambition and go for governorship.
He said “I am not preparing for this; my intention was to go to the Senate, but I will pray and consult.
“Give me time to consult and pray to God to give us direction. I want to assure you that I will do what is right”.
Earlier, the leader of the group, Lawrence Ngbale, said the group had collected contributions across the state of over N150 million, out of which, it bought the form for Ngilari and would use the balance for campaign.
“This is a popular project by the people of Adamawa who contributed over N150 million.
“You don’t need to spend a kobo as this is the people’s project and they are ever ready to sponsor it”.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Ngilari, who served as Deputy Governor to impeached Murtala Nyako, was returned as substantive governor following an Abuja High Court ruling that said his purported resignation as deputy governor was null and void. (NAN)
