The governorship candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in Adamawa, Umar Madawaki, on Thursday in Yola directed his supporters to vote for All Progressives Congress (APC) at the presidential election.
Mr Madawaki told a news conference that he had adopted the APC’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu as the candidate of choice on Saturday.
He said the LP had completely sidelined him and other party candidates in the build-up to the 2023 general elections.
“We have been deliberately disrespected by the party structure at the national and state levels.
“It is in light of this that we entered into discussions with the APC and after exhaustive negotiations, we have resolved to collapse our entire structure for the APC and particularly, for the presidential election.
“I therefore call on all my supporters to go to the polls on Saturday and overwhelmingly vote Sen. Bola Tinubu as president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” Mr Madawaki told journalists.
He added, however, that on March 11, voters should cast their votes for him as governor.
“My commitment is to run an administration that will embrace everyone regardless of ethnicity, location and religion.
“I will work committedly to build a state that is strong, rich and safe for everyone,” he stressed.
