Adamawa APC crisis: Aisha Buhari steps in

First Lady of Nigeria, Aisha Buhari has replied stakeholders in Adamawa politics assuring of our willingness to reconcile parties involved in the crisis rocking the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the State.

First Lady Aisha Buhari is to wade into the lingering crisis in Adamawa state branch of All Progressives Congress (APC).

 

On her verified Instagram handle @aisshambuhari in the early hours of today, in a post titled ‘My stand on Adamawa politics’,

 

Mrs. Buhari recalled the courtesy call to her office by Adamawa State APC leaders on November 18, 2022.

 

She restated her support for the genuine concern of the party leaders and expressed her commitment to step in to ensure that “reason and common sense will prevail in Adamawa politics.”

 

Crisis had engulfed the state branch of APC last May following the party’s governorship primary won by Senator Aishatu Binani with one of the aspirants, Malam Nuhu Ribadu rejecting it and heading to court.

 

Consequently, the Federal High Court last month voided the primary, averring that the party had no governorship candidate in the state, a development which prompted the APC as well as Binani and Ribadu to approach the Court of Appeal, with the case dividing the party along lines of Binani and Ribadu supporters.

 

However, an Appeal Court sitting in Yola, Adamawa State capital, on Thursday, November 24, held that Senator Binani is the APC governorship candidate in Adamawa.

 

In her Instagram post, the First Lady tasked Northern leaders to borrow a leaf from the exemplary practice of their counterparts in the Southwest in enthroning women as Deputy Governors in states “as a gradual approach to obtaining gender inclusion in our polity.”

 

Her post reads thus: ”MY STAND ON ADAMAWA POLITICS.

 

”In the name of Allah, I wish to thank Adamawa State APC Leaders for the courtesy visit they paid me, on November 18, 2022.

 

‘’As an indigene of the State, a mother, a grandmother and the First Lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, I would like to reaffirm my support for the genuine concern of our party leaders, as well as COMMIT TO STEPPING INTO THE PROBLEM so that reason and common sense will prevail in Adamawa politics.

 

”I would again like to repeat my appeal to respected leaders in the North to learn from the exemplary practice of their Southwest counterparts in enthroning women as Deputy Governors in states as a gradual approach to obtaining gender inclusion in our polity. This is a most realistic step in our efforts at attaining gender justice instead of supporting the pursuit of the misplaced ambition of an individual do-or-die politician.”
