FORMER military governor of
Lagos State and a chieftain of the
All Progressives Congress, APC,
General Mohammad Buba Marwa,
said the exit of former Vice President
Atiku Abubakar would not affect
the chances of the APC in the 2019
election, stressing that his exit will
stabilize it as a political party that
has come to develop and bring back
Nigeria’s lost glory.
Marwa, while speaking with
journalists in Yola, yesterday,
stressed that the exit was a loss
to the APC, but that the party in
Adamawa State cannot be subdued
by any party talk more of an
individual.
He said himself and other party
stakeholders in Adamawa would
deliver the state, particularly the
governorship and presidential
elections.
Marwa, alongside his group, The
Marwa Support Group, in a meeting

endorsed President Muhammadu
Buhari for continuity in 2019, said
so far there is no better presidential
candidate.
He explained that the Buhari
administration within the last
two years has recorded many
achievements, particularly in the
areas of security, fight against
corruption, improvement in
electricity supply and diversification
of the economy through agriculture
and solid minerals.
“We are happy with the measures
that government is taking to
diversify the economy which
has already started paying off,
especially in the agricultural and
mining sectors. The improvement
was manifest in the recent exit from
recession.
“No political party would like
to lose someone like the former
vice president. We urge our party
supporters to remain resolute and
avoid money bag politics, adding
that his departure will not affect the
fortunes of the APC”.
