Governor Jibrilla Bindow of Adamawa state has complained against the way federal appointments and projects concerning his state were being handled, Naij.com reports.
According to him, he and his officials may be forced to dump the All Progressives Congress if the complaints were not addressed, Premium Times reports.
Abdulrahman Jimeta, the chief of staff to the governor, disclosed this on Thursday, April 6, in the presence of Governor Bindow, while addressing a team from the APC National Secretariat who were on a visit to the state to conduct the north-east mini convention of the party.
“So, tell them we are loyal, but there is limit to that, especially if they are not recognising us, since we are the army of the party that is supposed to enjoy the fruits of the party; or out of frustration we join the opposition enemy party.”
Jimeta noted that various appointments were made without consulting the state government.
“Unfortunately, there is no difference between an opposition state and APC-led state like Adamawa because even appointments at the federal, we are not consulted.
“Some of them, we don’t know them neither were we consulted before their appointments as indigenes of Adamawa state,” he said.
The governor’s top aide said even some of the federal projects that the state was supposed to enjoy were being “hijacked by some people in Abuja”.
