Chairman of Adamawa Traditional Council who doubles as Lamido of Adamawa, Alhaji Barkindo-Mustafa, has turned his back on the Presidential ambition of his senior Council member, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and endorsed the candidacy of his opponent, President Muhammadu Buhari.
Atiku is the Turakin Adamawa and currently the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
President Buhari is running on the ticket of the ruling All Progressives Congress (PC).
In his endorsement letter to Buhari, the Monarch appealed to Nigerians to give him more time to actualise his dream for the country.
“Mr. President there is no doubt that much has been achieved during your present tenure, but certainly you need more time to actualise your dream for a better Nigeria.
“The giant strides and inroads you recorded in various fields of our endeavours such as economy, security and fight against corruption, which still remain the cornerstone of your agenda, would not have been made possible if not for your resilient, focus, passion and love for the country.
“This therefore calls for all and sundry to rally round you and allow you to get to the next level to enable you consolidate the various laudable programmes of your party.”
