The news circulating that Gov. Muhammadu Bindow of Adamawa is in talks with Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) with the intention to defect to the party has been described as false and mischievous.
This is contained in a statement on Sunday by the Commissioner of Information and Strategy, Mallam Ahmad Sajoh.
It read in part, “There is absolutely no truth whatsoever about the said news item.
“It is unfortunate, mischievous and figment of the imagination of whoever is the source of the misinformation.
“For the avoidance of doubt, His Excellency, Governor Muhammadu Jibrilla Bindow, has neither indicated intention to defect from APC nor entered into any form of discussions with anyone for the purpose of changing party.
“This kind of information is increasingly manifesting as a propaganda tool for opposition in Adamawa State due to the fact that they have lost all means of convincing the electorate to go against the glaring achievements of Governor Bindow which is unparalleled in the history of Adamawa state.”
The statement said that the state APC-led government was happy that the opposition PDP in the state had realised that Bindow was a performer with no parallel.
“The PDP have found no candidate with the credentials to defeat Governor Bindow, hence their desire to have him to fly their flag in the 2019 elections.
“That is totally out of question, Governor Bindow is an APC governor; he will remain in APC,” the statement read.
