The immediate-past governor of Adamawa state, Senator Mohammed Umaru Jibrilla Bindow, has appealed to Nigerians to remain steadfast and committed to the ideals of the founding fathers of the country.
Speaking to APC supporters to mark Nigeria’s Democracy Day, June 12, Bindow said the current security challenges being experienced across the country should not shake our faith in the corporate existence of the country, saying it would fizzle out.
He stated that insecurity was a global challenge that is tasking leaders all over the world, adding: “in Nigeria, we have a unique advantage of overcoming our challenges, if we remain committed to our ideals of respect for our diversity and plurality in our core value.
“Nigeria is a resilient country and I believe we would overcome the current challenges”.
The former Governor appealed for sections of the country to shun the use of violence in espousing their cause as violence, according to him, is counterproductive.
“Let us imbibe the culture of dialogue in pursuing our goals of developing our society”.
Bindow observed that the current tempo of peace in Adamawa state was commendable and appealed to the state government and the citizens to sustain the pace.
Bindow was governor of Adamawa State between 2015 and 2019.
METROWATCH is an online daily newspaper founded in October 2013 by a seasoned reporter, Collins Edomaruse. He had risen to the position of General Editor in his 18 years stint at THISDAY newspaper, an appointment he resigned on October 30, 2013 to pursue his online newspaper publishing dream. Prior to his appointment as the newspaper’s General Editor, he had served, at various times, as Editor, Nation’s Capital; Group News Editor, Associate Editor, and Deputy Editor at different times for the newspaper’s three titles – Daily, Sunday and Saturday.
Edomaruse had covered education, sports, energy, national security, defence and transport beats among others. As a defence correspondent, Edomaruse traversed the war zones of both Liberia and Sierra-Leone in the dark days of Charles Taylor and Foday Sanko as warlords, which earned him the sobriquet “General” by his colleagues in the newsroom.
METROWATCH will act as a catalyst in our debate and desire for a crime-free Nigeria and provide the much-needed platform for all, irrespective of social, religious or political divide, to express their views.
METROWATCH will strive to bring to the public domain issues of bad governance, dirty business, hostile neighborliness, security challenges and other crime issues that are always begging for attention in Nigeria.
We will pursue this course with every vigor in our drive for the TRUTH and FAIRNESS.
