He also explained that the Southeast senatorial district, where Fubara came from, was yet to produce the first governor in the state.

He stated, “Voting a riverine candidate in the person of Simimialayi Fubara from the South East Senatorial District of the state during the up coming governorship poll ensures that the Labour Party and her members are defenders and ambassadors of the values that have set her Obidient movement apart from all other parties.”


Similarly, the Labour Party (LP) governorship candidate in Adamawa State Umar Mustapha has withdrawn from the race and declared support for the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Aishatu Ahmad Binani.

Mustapha while addressing the APC stakeholders meeting said he decided to step down for Binani because they shared the same passion for service to the people.

“I Umar Mustapha Otumba, the governorship candidate of Labour Party have withdrawn from the governorship contest to support Senator Aishatu Ahmed Binani. Both of us realise that we have the same goal and that some people are happy we are going to split our votes.

“Now we have teamed up and I am calling on my supporters, young and old, male and female to come out en mass on the 11th of March and vote for Aishatu Ahmad Binani for governorship,“ he stated.

In her response, Binani lauded the step taken by the LP candidate as courageous and progressive, calling on candidates of other political parties to learn from him.

Mustapha was defeated by Binani at the APC primary election alongside four other male aspirants before he joined the LP and became its governorship candidate.

A few days before the presidential election, Mustapha had accused the LP of working against him, ditching its presidential candidate, Peter Obi, and calling on his supporters to work for the then APC presidential candidate, Bola Ahmad Tinubu instead.
