“As a group, we are happy that Senator Abdullahi Adamu finally emerged as the national chairman of the APC. We want to also commend Senator Tanko Al-Makura for being a dogged politician and for accepting the wishes of the party.

“While Adamu was in office as governor of the state from 1999 till 2007, he was able to build some tertiary institutions in the state, namely Nasarawa State University, Keffi, College of Education, Akwanga, Mustapha Agwai 1 polytechnic, Lafia, among other laudable projects in other sectors of the state’s economy.

“Senator Abdullahi Adamu also exhibited tremendous concerns and interest to the growth of the Migili nation in Nasarawa state during his tenure as governor and we want him to be assured of our support at all times”.
