Adamawa State Working Committee of All Progressives Congress (APC) has blamed it’s Gubernatorial candidate, Senator Aishatu Ahmed Dahiru Binani for the failure of the party at the 2023 Governorship polls that produced incumbent governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP.

The party officials made the revelation at a meeting convened at the party secretariat in Yola on Monday to review what was behind the party’s failure in the last Governorship election, the bye-election and what transpired at the courts.

According to them, the PDP incumbent Governor in the state won his election on a platter of gold because of Binani’s lack of wisdom to work with the party structure and allow peace to reign.

The party also condemned her attitude of high-handedness, pompous and indisciplined behavior, they accused her of dumping all the APC officials from the ward, Local Government, and state levels during her campaigns, and elections periods.

While the Party officials narrate their individual experiences, they said Binani had injured the party by instigating and accepting the unconstitutional declaration of Barr Yunusa Ari Hudu. They condemned Hudu’s act and regarded it as anti-democracy and unconstitutional behavior that is morally and criminally indicting to him and all his accomplices.

Speaking shortly after the meeting, the Chairman of the party, Barr Idris Shuaibu, the Party’s secretary, Dr Raymond Dauda Chidama and local government party Chairmen unanimously stated that their candidate was fighting both the high and the lowly of the party which was her main weakness.

Raymond while reviewing the outcome of the Governorship election reiterated that the party Adamawa APC should not be held responsible for not winning the election and the court case against PDP, but Binani should be faulted and all blame should be shifted to her.

Raymond narrated the ordeals the party went through before the Governorship election which they made all efforts to sit with her to face their common enemies but they were humiliated by her incantations and looked through their faces with disdained attitudes when she invited them over to her house for a supposed Peace pack.

The party secretary said that from now on any gubernatorial candidate elected must have some leadership qualities before they are allowed to be the Flag bearer.

“We will never go into elections in crisis, we must resolve our differences between all aggrieved Party Stakeholders, loyalists, and candidates before venturing into any election. We will not allow the past mistakes to hunt us to our next line of political elections.” Raymond Said

The Chairman, Barrister Idris who is new on his appointment condemned the way and manner Binani emerged as the party’s sole candidate and the entire process of the campaign and election, down to when Hudu stage managed a drama at the collation center announcing Binani a winner of the election, believed APC is still strong in Adamawa and the state belong to the party.

He called on every stakeholder and Party official to go back to their units, wards, and all communities to unite and work as a formidable party of victory in the coming elections.

Meanwhile, every attempt to get Binani or her spokesperson to respond to the allegations proved abortive as at the time.this report was filed.
