Gov. Mohammed Bindow of Adamawa on Thursday assured voters in the state of adequate security during and after the general elections.
This is contained in a statement signed by Mr Macaulay Hunohashi, Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the governor.
He urged the citizens of the state to come out in their numbers to cast their votes for President Muhammadu Buhari and other candidates of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
According to him, this has become necessary because of the pragmatic steps the ruling APC is taking to address the previous government’s under-development and lack of vision.
He said tangible projects that had been completed and many that were in progress were there for Nigerians to see and appreciate.
The governor mentioned some of them as massive railroad projects, intercity highways and bridges, mass housing construction, food security and many people-oriented interventions.
“For us in the northeast, we have every reason to re-elect President Buhari, because we were under constant attacks and occupation by Boko Haram, with about seven local governments of Adamawa State taken over by the dreaded insurgents.
“Today, the good news is that of relative peace and freedom with a conducive atmosphere for worshipers, free movement across borders and interaction.
“We shall also remain grateful for the various road network that would link our dear state with other parts of the country: Numan/Jalingo road, Numan/Gombe road, Toungo/Jada/Ganye/Mayo Belwa road, Jimeta/Mubi/Maiduguri road.
“All conceived and awarded by President Muhammadu Buhari led administration in the last three and half years.
“We should reciprocate with our votes as a demonstration of our appreciation,” the statement noted.
While assuring citizens of their safety before, during and after the polls, the governor urged eligible voters, on their part, to shun vote-buying and election violence with emphasis that, “president Buhari is our in-law, a nationalist and patriot with no known record of indiscipline”.
