Labour Party guber candidate in Adamawa, Muqaddas, adopts Tinubu



The Labour Party governorship candidate in Adamawa State, Dr. Umar Mustapha Muqaddas, has adopted the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, in Saturday’s election.

Muqaddas, who addressed journalists at a media briefing in Yola, said the LP had sidelined him and other party candidates in the state.

He lamented that the LP leaders are as bad as the current political leaders they planned to replace.

The governorship candidate, therefore, asked his supporters to vote for the APC presidential flag bearer on Saturday.

He said: “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 senator Bola Tinubu as president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
