2023: I’ll bow out of Adamawa Guber contest if Binani beats me in her LG – Ardo

The Gubernatorial candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Adamawa State, Dr. Umar Ardo has vowed to concede defeat to Sen. Aishatu Dahiru Ahmed Binani, the gubernatorial candidate of APC if she defeated him in Yola South, her local government of origin in the forth coming gubernatorial election in the state.

In a statement he forwarded to this paper, on Tuesday, the gubernatorial hopeful said the people of Adamawa can no more be deceived to vote on the basis of enticement with the proceeds of corruption adding that they will call the bluff of Binani come 2023 general election.

“I said it before on a national TV, and I am repeating it again – if Sen. Binani wins her local government, Yola South, against me, l concede defeat and let her be sworn in as governor.

“What could Sen. Binani and the entire APC team, both unmistakably standing on a weak and shaky ground, possibly tell the people of Adamawa state?

“Both of them combined to destroy the society and they want to now crave for power again! No, Adamawa people, and indeed Nigerians, are wiser – at least if Nigerians are not, Adamawa people are.

“They now know their enemies, and they’re those who stole their commonwealth, inflicted hardship to their lives, denied their children basic education, denied the society basic healthcare, made life unbearable through high cost of living, low level of earnings, and lack of security to their lives and property.

“Ask our people which political parties inflicted these wounds on our communities, their chorus answer is unmistaken – the PDP and the APC! In any decent society, both PDP and APC ought not to even show their faces in public; but because we’re living in a supine and perverse society, they’re not only talking but even canvassing for votes. It’s most sad!

“I think Sajo is deceiving himself by mistaking distribution of proceeds of corruption for enticement to popular support. Adamawa people now know better; the scales have dropped from their eyes, and they now can see and decipher the good ones and the bad ones. In the SDP we’re armed and ready waiting for her and the entire APC team at the polls,” he said.
