I thank God for the four years as a senator, four years, it may be eight years as a governor – Bindow the zakir leader

By Adamu Muhammad Dodo

Governor Muhammadu Umaru Jibrilla Bindow the self acclaimed Zakir leader, reduced to remain faithful to what is fated, defined as failure occasioned by what playwright critic could conceive as tragic flaw having been humiliated at the poll for governorship, would be in Sudan for a period of one year study to update his Islamic knowledge after the May 2019 handing over, he said.

Bindow dispelled the rumour that he was on a month leave to Saudi Arabia for a lesser hajj, which he earlier intended but could not make it. “It is now that I’m planning to go for the lesser hajj the Umrah,” he said.

Commenting in “Taba Kidi Taba Karatu” a Adamawa radio broadcasting corporation Yola’s most popular Hausa programme monitored by Katakore Adamu Tanko, Tuesday, Bindow, having appreciated God’s blessings, commended the people of Adamawa state for the mandate and the cooperation he enjoined throughout his tenure.

“I’ve not been able to avail myself because I’ve been to Abuja for sometime simply to rest, to sleep and to supplicate in appreciation of God’s favor for everything He has done to me and to be grateful to the peasants of Adamawa state for their mandate, support and cooperation.

“I thank God for the four years as a senator, four years, it may be eight years as a governor, no one can tell, trusting, as an ardent Tijjaniyya, a chairman or zakir leader professed to Islamic faith, that power and authority are to God who gives it to whomsoever He wishes and takes it away from whomsoever He wishes at His own time.

“My concern hinges on the peasants of Adamawa state. My prayer has been the actualisation of peace and mutual coexistence in Adamawa state

“I thank God in my capacity as a businessman established as a family occupation, which my parents were famous for and for taking sympathy to the downtrodden, the less privileged.

“It’s simply a destiny that leads me into politics and that’s what makes me a unique politician having the sympathy of and doing for the led, untypical of other politicians,” Bindow said

The Periscope Global Investigate can reveal that while some electorates supportive of, commended Bindow for the radio programme, other people in opposition, simply argued that it was meant to appeal for sympathy from the aggrieved subjects yet to enjoy the dividends of Bindow government in villages where roads were not constructed, where social amenity is lacking, with an unmotivated local government work force.
