Senator representing Adamawa Central, AbdulAziz Nyako has debunked rumours that he was mobilising to contest for governorship of the state in 2019.
Nyako, who spoke to newsmen in Yola, said he was more concerned with giving quality representation to his people instead of wasting energy on a distant event such as 2019 governorship election.
“2019 is something that is too far away to comment on because we may just end up in controversy over an issue that we have no control over. My philosophy is very simple; 2019 to me is very far. I don’t even know whether I will live till sunset. I place concentrating on my job as a senator.
“I do have a lot of work at the Senate; I have a committee that is involved with a lot of organisations and I will advise anyone who is voted by the people to work and forget 2019. Whatever Allah wills that is what will happen,” he said.
On the alleged misunderstanding between him and Gov Bindow’s camp, the senator advised Bindow to stop what he described as shadow boxing and concentrate on governing the state.
“For me, I would have ordinarily preferred a situation the governor himself concentrates on his work. He has a lot of work to do. He has a very tough state to govern. He should just make up his mind to govern.
“The governor seems to indulge in shadow boxing. Shadow boxing amounts to someone going into the ring and fighting alone. The unfortunate thing about shadow boxing is that when you are doing it you will keep sweating and at a point in time you will get tired of fighting alone,” Nyako said.
