expedient to support the candidature of Ribadu as a patriotic move to

salvage the state from the shackles of underdevelopment as Ribadu is

the only candidate who has the experience, courage and the will to

entrench solid developmental strides in the state.

Ribadu is the best. That is why we appeal to other gubernatorial

candidates of various political parties who are by now convinced on

the credibility of Ribadu to courageously declare their support for

transformation and restructuring of our dear state. We believe that

with his wealth of experience both nationally and internationally, he

is the right man that can fix the various components of Adamawa

state,” Minakaro said.
He noted that in view of dearth of developmental strides that has

dogged the state for a very long time; the choice of Ribadu remains

the last option to “liberate” the state from the brink of collapse

resulting from many years of neglect.
“The Nuhu Ribadu we know and we want you to know is the only person

among all these candidates that can make things right and his previous

records of transparency dedication and selfless services to the nation

are witnesses to this fact,”
Minakaro urged all citizens to rally their support for Ribadu as a

vote for him is a vote for a new face of Adamawa State noting that

with Ribadu as the helmsman in tow, the state will surely move to the

utopian land
