Jibrilla Bindow, has refuted claims that he is planning on leaving the ruling All Progressives’ Congress (APC) with former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar.
He said, “Let me talk about Atiku first before myself. The former vice president is more than matured 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; that we agreed to move to APC, so, I cannot see any reason why, today, that the house I built, that I will leave. So I am in APC for the rest of my life, period.”
He said, “Well, APC is strong, we have 25 members in the state assembly, 23, in fact, 24 now because one of them have moved to the APC, so, 24 out of 25 members in the house of assembly are 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.”
Despite his firm objection to following Atiku outside the door, Governor Bindow maintained that he respects the former Vice President.
“Waziri remains somebody I respect as a father, and the same with any other elder in the state,” he said.
