Adamawa State Governor Bindo Jibrilla, on Tuesday said he has no plan to toe the line of former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar in dumping the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Fielding questions from State House correspondents, shortly after a closed door meeting with President Muhammad Buhari, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, Jibrilla said planned to remain in the APC despite his closeness to Mr. Atiku, who left the party last week.

“The former vice president is more than mature enough to decide whatever he wants to decide for himself. As far as I am concerned, I am one of the founding fathers of APC. When I was in the Senate, we were the ones, alongside the current Senate President that worked very hard to ensure that all members of the National Assembly; that we agreed to move to APC”.

He maintained that nothing can make him dump the party stressing that “I cannot see any reason why, today, that the House I built, that I will leave.

“So, I am in APC for the rest of my life, period.’’

According to Jibrilla, the entire North East remains solidly behind the President in view of the achievements of his government.

The governor explained that the resignation of Atiku would never affect the fortune of the APC in Adamawa.

“Well, APC is strong, we have 25 members in the state assembly. 23, in fact, 24 now because one of them have moved to the APC, so, 24 out of 25 members in the House of Assembly are APC.

“The three Senators from the state are APC, even the House of Representatives, including Adamu Kamale who recently moved to the APC.

“So we are strong and we will continue to be strong,’’ he added.

Atiku Abubakar, in a statement on Friday, announced his resignation from the APC.
