The warring camps of the All Progressives Congress Party (APC), in Adamawa State, have decided to unite, so that the party would emerge victorious in the forthcoming general election.
The warring parties were the ones controlled by the former Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar and ousted Governor Murtala Nyako.
The crisis deepened last year when Atiku’s candidate suffered defeat, twice, in the gubernatorial party primaries which produced Senator Muhammadu Umaru Jibrilla Bindowo as the winner.
At the end of a meeting, held at Atiku’s Yola residence, on Sunday, it was agreed that the party stakeholders should lead the campaign team of the party’s gubernatorial candidate across the 21 Local Governments Areas of the state.
This development has, no doubt, rattled the ruling party, which, hitherto, was banking on the internal wrangling within the major opposition party to have a runaway victory in the forthcoming election.
Investigations revealed that the meeting, which lasted several hours, was attended by notable stakeholders from the two camps and was presided by the Atiku.
Those present were former chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party in the state, Alhaji Mijinyawa Kugama, Chief of Staff to Nyako, Abdurrahaman Abbah Jimeta, Alhaji Mansur Toungo, Ibrahim Mijinyawa Yayaji, Sajoh Gella, Muhammadu Umar Jibrilla Bindowo, alongside all the Senatorial and House of Representatives candidates of the party.
