Governor Bindow Jibrilla of Adamawa has again vowed not to dump the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Jubrila said he has no reason to leave the ruling party because former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar resigned.
Jibrilla gave this assurance on Tuesday after a closed door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja shortly before the latter jetted out of the country to Abidjan.
He said he would remain in the ruling party with his numerous followers and give maximum support to the Buhari administration.
“The former vice president is more than mature enough to decide whatever he wants to decide for himself.
“As far as I am concerned, I am one of the founding fathers of APC.
“When I was in the Senate, we were the ones, alongside the current Senate President, that worked very hard to ensure that all members of the National Assembly agree to move to APC.
“So, I cannot see any reason why I would leave the House I built.
“So, I am in APC for the rest of my life, period.”
According to Jibrilla, the entire North East remains solidly behind the President in view of the achievements of his government.
The governor explained that the resignation of Atiku would never affect the fortune of the APC in Adamawa.
“Well, APC is strong, we have 25 members in the state assembly. 23, in fact, 24 now because one of them has moved to the APC.
“The three Senators from the state are APC, even the House of Representatives, including Adamu Kamale who recently moved to the APC.
“So we are strong and we will continue to be strong,’’ he added.
