The Adamawa State chapter of the All Progressives Congress [APC] is currently divided over the nomination of Muhammad Musa Bello as minister.
The expectation of the members APC was dashed and fresh internal crisis brewing in the party as a result of the said nomination which came as a bang.
The Party’s public relation officer in the state, Alhaji Ahmed Lawal said the party is not aware of the nomination of Bello as he has never been part of any campaign or contributed to the growth of the party in whatever way in the state.
According to Lawal, the nomination is an indication that the Party stalwart has no respect to the leadership of the party in the state and as such a high tendency for infuriating party members over the nomination.
“The Nomination of Muhammad Musa Bello is a surprise to us as a Party; nobody is aware of the development in the state only to see him appear in the senate chamber to be screened,” Ahmad said.
Ahmad added that no consultation was made to the party over whom to given the Adamawa ministerial slot.
Another Party Stalwart who single-handedly engineered the process of bringing former Governor Murtala Nyako to APC, Dr Umar Duhu berates the nomination of Bello to have flawed party and stake holders’ principles.
The outburst arose when the Governor of the state, Senator Muhammadu Bindow Jibrilla has since issued a press release endorsing the nomination of Musa.
“Senator Muhammad Umar Jibrilla expresses total endorsement of the ministerial Nominee from Adamawa state, Alhaji Muhammad Musa Bello. Appeal to all the three senators from the state to ensure that the nomination secures their endorsement,” the governor had announced.
Jibrilla also commend President Muhammadu Buhari for nominating such a patriotic son of Adamawa to server as a minister.
