Hong – The Adamawa Governorship candidate of African Democratic Congress (ADC), Sen. Abdul-Aziz Nyako, has promised defectors from other parties to ADC greener pasture if he emerges as governor.
Nyako made the promise on Saturday while receiving some defectors from All Progressives Congress (APC), Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Uba Ward of Hong Local Government Area.
Nyako said the greener pasture would not only extend to them as active participants in his election but the entire people of Adamawa who would witness the revival of free healthcare, education, mechanised agriculture and empowerment programmes.
Also speaking, the State Chairman of ADC, Alhaji Yahaya Hammanjulde promised the defectors equal treatment in ADC and full sense of belonging.
Hammanjulde lauded what he described as the popular acceptance of the party at the grassroots and assured the people of full commitment by the party’s candidate not to betray their confidence when elected.
He pointed out that Sen. Nyako who is the serving senator representing Adamawa Central Senatorial District had proved his worth as a senator and would not fail as a governor.
Hammanjulde noted that former Gov. Murtala Nyako did not fail the people of Adamawa as a governor, saying that his son, Abdul-Aziz would not fail them as well.
“Already, his father, Murtala Nyako, whose tenure as governor of Adamawa is always remembered will nostalgia is serving as a guarantor that will ensure Abdul-Aziz performed when elected,’’ Hammanjulde said.
Earlier, the party chairman in Hong Local Government, Malam Isa Galadima, said the people of Hong were convinced that Abdul-Aziz, who is their senator, would deliver as a governor if elected.
