Adamawa: Group canvasses support for Marwa


…Says: He will stabilize security in North East
A socio-political group made up of young Nigerians across the country,

Democratic Young Patriots, DYP, has called on PDP delegates in Adamawa to

support the governorship aspiration of former Lagos state military

administrator, Gen. Mohammed Buba Marwa in the interest of the state and

the North East zone.
The group in a statement released in Abuja on Sunday by its national

coordinator, Ariyo-Dare Atoye said their call was a patriotic duty after

assessing the antecedents of all the aspirants already cleared by the PDP

to contest the by-election even as they pleaded with President Goodluck

Jonathan to show interest in the coming election because of the security

situation in the North East.
According to them, “as young patriots committed to democratic ideals,

stability and prosperity of Nigeria, we wish to appeal to President

Goodluck Jonathan to show greater interest in the Adamawa state

governorship election and be guided by the challenges confronting the

North-East and the nation at large. Our dear President, Adamawa is too

strategic for leadership experimentation; we therefore urge you to

consider the cost of insecurity in the North-East and the overall interest

of the nation. Getting it right with Adamawa state will be a plus to the

Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
While expressing support for the candidacy of Gen. Marwa, the young

patriots said the former military governor in Borno has the track record

and capability to evolve security strategies that will complement federal

government's efforts in the North East zone.
“We present to you, Gen. Buba Marwa (retd), a leader with proven

track-record for good governance and security strategy. We urge you

President Jonathan to support the aspiration of Marwa, which will

complement your sincere efforts at addressing the security problems in the

North-East. It is to the glory of God that a man who has a profound

knowledge of Borno and Yobe States (as a former military administrator of

old Borno State), is available for election by the PDP in Adamawa state.

It is a rare development, that the good people of Lagos State who utterly

condemned the regime of late Gen. Sani Abacha, however singled out Gen.

Marwa for praises. His records as a former Military Administrator of Lagos

remain indelible in Nigeria.
“To our esteemed PDP delegates in Adamawa, we urge you to support the

aspiration of Gen. Buba Marwa (retd) in the overall interest of the state

and by extension, Nigeria. We appeal to you to remember the years of bad

governance and the misuse of state treasury for self-aggrandizement and be

guided by the need to have a tested and trusted leader in saddle. Marwa is

your son, he did it in Lagos and old Borno state; we assure you that he

will do much more in his own State. This is not the time for leadership

experimentation; it may prove very costly for the good people of Adamawa

State if a wrong choice is made. Get it right with Marwa, support his

aspiration and he will move Adamawa forward.
“We also appeal fellow Nigerians concerned about the insurgency in the

North-East and those who debated the 'treasonable letter' written by the

impeached former governor of Adamawa State, Murtala Nyako, to show a

greater interest in Adamawa by supporting Gen. Marwa. He connects very

well with the ordinary people as a humble and humane leader. He will bring

on board a new security strategy to complement the efforts of the federal

government”, the group pleaded.
