Gov Jibrilla denies making Atiku 2019 comments

The governor of Adamawa State, Muhammad Jibrilla, has denied media report suggesting that he has declared his support for the 2019 presidential bid of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar.

A statement by Martins Dickson, the ‎Special Assistant to the governor on Press and Media Affairs, said the governor did not make any statement concerning 2019 elections during the flag-off of Girei-Pariya-Wuro Bokki road on Thursday.

The statement pointed out that it was an unfair misrepresentation of Governor Jibrilla’s speech.
“The governor only stated that Atiku is like a father to him and he has no political godfather as insinuated by some sections of the media. He then thanked President Muhammadu Buhari for bringing peace to the North-East and Nigeria as whole and called on the people of Adamawa to unite and make the state a better place,” the statement read in part.

It called on the people to disregard the content of the publication, assuring them of more focused leadership committed to fulfilling campaign promises.
