The three lawmakers from the Chiefdom are; Abdullahi Ahmed Manager member representing Leko Koma state constituency, Abdullahi Umar Nyako representing Toungo state constituency and Alhassan Hammanjoda member representing Ganye state constituency.

Spokesman of the three groups and member representing Ganye state constituency in Adamawa State House of assembly, Alhassan Hammanjoda said the move shows that Namdas’ ambition is not an individual aspiration but a collective one.

“We the APC members, Adamawa State House of assembly from Ganye Chiefdom, Ganye, Jada and Toungo constituencies, in collaboration with Namdas support group and senior citizens in the Chiefdom wish to declare our total support to Hon. Abdulrazak Sa’ad Namdas aspiration for the office of the governor in Adamawa State under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

“In view of the above, we willingly contributed the sum of twenty five million naira only (N25,000,000) to enable him purchase the governorship nomination form,” he said.

While making case on the need of other zones to reciprocate the gesture of the Chiefdom in supporting them from time immemorial, Hammanjoda said, “the Chiefdom has never produced a governor in the history of Adamawa State apart from the three months tenure of Alhaji Bamanga Tukur in Gongola State under NPN.”

He also eulogized the leadership attributes of the lawmaker saying that, “Hon. Namdas has the capacity to occupy the number one seat in Adamawa State. Hon Namdas has distinguished himself where he is serving as the member representing Mayo Belwa, Jada, Ganye and Toungo at the national assembly. His performance is unprecedented.

“In view of the above, we are calling on all APC family of course, the people of Adamawa State to support Namdas’ aspiration to be the next governor of Adamawa State come 2023. We are assuring you that Namdas will never disappoint you. And with him, the desired Adamawa State of our dream is achievable.”

Thanking the groups for the gesture, and show of love to his aspiration, Namdas said the gesture represents a bold move by the Chiefdom to support one of its own.

Namdas who was represented by his senior legislative aide, Hussain Sanda thanked them for the olive branch extended to him adding that they will never regret supporting him.

He said the fact that many people came together to mobilize funds for the purchase of the gubernatorial form indicated that the aspiration of Namdas is not an individual but a collective dream.

Namdas thanked them for the spiritedness, love and brotherhood to him adding that he will not fritter away such confidence if elected.
