KADUNA, North-West, Nigeria – A former Senator, and governorship aspirant in the 2015 election from Adamawa State, Abubakar Girei has condemned in strong terms the recent position of the Adamawa State Committee meeting of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) advocating for indirect primaries in the state.

Speaking in a telephone interview with newsmen, Senator Girei said the so called state committee meeting of the APC, summoned by Governor Jibrilla Bindow in Government House and his cronies demand for indirect primaries on ground that Adamawa state is not safe for direct primaries is far from reality.

“Therefore, their appeal to the Chairman National Working Committee to allow for indirect primaries in the state should not be taken serious because it is anti people in the present circumstance.

“This is clearly what we have been talking about in the last six to seven months. The attitudes of politicians who have lost touch with realities on ground are not allign with the objectives and aspirations of President Mohammadu Buhari is already becoming public.

“Mr President who is a champion of anti corruption war cannot be seen to support anything with corrupt tendencies and illegitimate.

“Those who hide under the banner of insecurity to advocate for indirect primaries, are they saying there would be no election in Adamawa State in 2019.

“The Indirect primaries they are talking about, is it not going to be after direct Congresses that will elect delegates for the canvassed indirect primaries? Are they trying to make Adamawa people to continue to waste their time from one election to another?.

“To my surprise, the Secretary of the Federation created that confusion. For supporting indirect primaries, he is working against his principal who is in support of direct primaries, fairness, equity and justice, who is for anything against corruption, the people of this country, masses and direct primaries.

“The Secretary to the Federal Government coming to allign himself with Bindow who has lost out completely talking about indirect primaries is a misplaced priority.

“I want to advise my good friend, Barrister Boss Mustapha a refined gentle man by all standard to retrace his steps as quickly as possible, because that stand is not good for the people of Adamawa state, country and the APC” he said.
