The All Progressives Congress (APC much-touted )'s reconciliation and promise of justice and fairness inside the Adamawa state chapter appear to have encountered a snag due to the party's failure to hold the congress in the Mubi North and Mubi South local government areas.
Senator Ishaku Abbo, who represents Adamawa North in the Senate, and former Governor Jibrilla are vying for the party's gubernatorial nomination.
Other APC stakeholders have threatened to take the party to court for failing to convene congresses, as well as to pay the party in its currency in 2023. They claimed that hijacking party institutions do not result in electoral victory.
When THE GAZETTE visited the congress's approved venue, only delegates were spotted waiting in large numbers till 6 p.m., with no electoral committee or election materials, present because the officials were unable to be found. The delegates were forced to disperse to their homes as a result of this.
Sen. Abbo, flanked by Bindow political camp and other critical APC stakeholders in Mubi, addressed the delegates at the venue before their departure to their homes when it became clear that the electoral commission would not show up to conduct the congress, accusing the interim state chairman, Alh. Ibrahim Bilal, who wants to continue as substantive chairman, of conniving with members representing Mubi North, Mubi South, and Maiha.
In their desperate attempt to hijack the party structure, he also accused Jaafar Magaji of secretly tinkering with the delegate's list agreed and submitted by all stakeholders by removing the names of authentic delegates from the master list and replacing them with their cronies, as well as forging official signatures.
