(APC) today described former vice president

Noting that the Turaki Adamawa is not just a son of
Adamawa State, Alhaja Kwaji underlined that he is
well-known and well-respected across the six
geopolitical zones of our great country, Nigeria.
“His marriage and business ties cut across tribe and
tongue, as do his philanthropy and social obligations,”
she said, adding that in the deeply-divided Nigeria
oftoday, only few politicians can make such a claim.
“Without the least meaning to diminish his national
and global stature, it is on the records that Atiku as
an individual has done more to develop Adamawa
State than any indigene of the state that is living or
dead. His university, the American University of
Nigeria has put our state and the whole country on
the world’s map of quality education,” the chairman
noted.
She stressed that the former vice-president ranks as
the highest employer of labour through his many
businesses and industrial establishments superseded
only by the state government.
“We are equally thrilled by his commitment to job
creation, improving the economy, education,
infrastructure, transparency in government and the
overall welfare of Nigerians.”
Pronouncing the endorsement, she said, “It is on this
note that the entire members of the State Executive
Committee who are all here, supported by the party
chairmen in all the local government areas
representing the APC in Adamawa State hereby
endorses the Turaki Adamawa for the 2015
Presidential elections.”
She disclosed that at the party executives’ meeting on
Sunday evening, it was unanimously resolved that he
be given their full backing towards realizing his
ambitions to create a Nigeria for all.
“The party, therefore, urges all APC faithful in the
state to support this gesture and also give Atiku
Abubakar their full backing. The people of Adamawa
must unite to ensure that the 2015 elections bring
about the CHANGE that we all seek.”
