Adamawa Polls: Babachir Lawal Urge Bindow To Concede Defeat Honourably

Mr Babachir Lawal, former secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), has urged APC governorship candidate, Gov Muhammad Bindow, to honourably concede defeat in the interest of peace in Adamawa State.

Lawal was reacting to the release details of polling units for governorship re-run election fixed for March 23rd as released by Independent National Electoral Commision (INEC), in the state.

The delimitation details signed by Bakari Musa, Administrative Secretary, for the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Kassim Gaidam, revealed that the total number of registered voters in the 44 polling units stands at 34,101 against 40,948 being speculated.

The details were sequel to the demand by People’s Democratic Party (PDP) as condition for the re-run elections in the affected units.

Lawal said:

“The only honourable thing to do is for my party’s candidate, governor Bindow, to concede and give peace a chance.

“Therefore , let’s not allow elections to cause trouble between brothers, Bindow can go back to the drawing board and launch himself back, he maintained.

It would be recalled that a Yola high court had  granted injunction restraining INEC from conducting supplementary election, slated for March 23, in 44 units.

The REC in the state, Barrister Kassim Gaidam, said the commission would  go ahead with the conduct of the March 23 supplementary polls in the state.
