The Adamawa state Governor, Senator Muhammadu Umaru Jibrilla Bindow [above] has been accused of running a lopsided government whose interest is not for the general people of the state.
Barrister A. T. Shehu, who is the state Chapter scribe (Secretary) of People’s Democratic Party [PDP], said Bindow Administration is a one-sided Government not considering the interest of the general public who are the Majority.
According to him, PDP is not having this style of governance, as it was always making sure it carried everyone along, everybody is represented and the general public will be having a feeling of fair play.
”Bindow is running a lopsided government; though I am not surprise with the kind of governance I am seeing because the Governor himself is a one-sided Governor,” he said.
The accusation made by the opposition party came as a result of a Press statement issued by the governor and signed by his Press Secretary, Yohanah Mathias of appointing as follows:
• Mohammed Abdullahi Abba as a special Adviser on Assembly Matters and State Assembly Liaison
• Audu Ayuba Tanko – state coordinator and Special Adviser to the Governor on Wealth Creation and poverty alleviation
• Mohammed Awwal Abdullahi – Special Assistant on New Media (Social Media)
• Alhaji Ja’afar Abubakar Magaji – As Member Adamawa Investment Company to replace late Ismaila Jauro
• Mallam Sanusi Mohammed Bakari and Mallam Saidu Usman were also given appointments as Principal Assistants to the office of Chief of Staff whose appointments has since take immediate effect
But on a contrary view, one of the APC stalwarts in the state, Mr P. P. Elisha said Bindow’s appointments has nothing to do with sentiments that is bordering along religion or ethnicity but is fishing out best hand that is going to work with for the interest of the general people in the state.
A grassroots politician and a Woman activist who at one point was secretary of Mayo- Bani Area Development in Mubi North Local government Area (LGA), Hannatu M Jarengol berates the appointment of sidelining women in the state who have massively voted for the ruling party.
Jarengol added that APC which is supposed to be a party of change to meet the yearnings and expectation of people is gradually becoming a party of religion and ethnic sentiment with serious bias to women Gender.
