Former Secretary to the Federal Government (SGF), Babachir David Lawal has called on the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to replace Governor Muhammadu Jibrilla Bindow as its governorship candidate if it hopes to retain Adamawa State.

Lawal, who was speaking in Yola at a press conference organized by the governorship campaign team of President Buhari’s brother-in-law, Mahmud Halilu who lost to Bindow in the primary election said the fact that the governor had been in court over alleged WAEC certificate forgery showed that the state could be lost.

The former SGF reiterated the need for the party to replace Jibrilla Bindow with a credible candidate who possesses the minimum qualification or risk losing the state through litigation.

He said: “APC as a party is confronted with possibility of presenting a candidate per adventure that may lose governorship election over certificate disqualification. Those people that alerted us on the certificate saga are not members of APC.”
