Adamawa state former governor, Senator Umaru Jibrilla Bindow has Monday declared his interest to re-contest for the office of the governor of the state in the 2023 elections.

Bindow who lost his re-election bid to the incumbent governor in the 2019 general elections told party loyalists at the state secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) said he is coming with fresh ideas to continue from where he stopped.
While addressing journalists at his Yola residence, Bindow said he has finally resolved to join the governorship race in a bid to complete his second term in office.

He said all the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship aspirants in Adamawa are qualified and urged them to give him the chance to continue from where he stopped for more development in the state.

The ex-governor urged the people of the state to allow him to serve the state for a second term.

He said: “I did a lot in the state when I was governor and I have many plans for the state if hopefully re-elected in 2023.”

The APC chairman in the state, Alhaji Ibrahim Bilal, who was also at the briefing, called for unity in the party.
