Former Adamawa Governor To Dump APC


By Ajogwu Jerry
A former acting Governor of Adamawa State and member of the Presidential Committee on North East Initiative, James Barka, says he is is no longer comfortable being a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) due to what he described as ‘unreliable’ nature of the party leadership in the state.
James Barka made the remarks during a meeting with a delegation of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), led by the state chairman, Shehu Tahir, in Yola.
According to Bala:
“A leader must be upright and a discipline person and people should be able to hold him to his words.
“When you become a leader who is known for consistently eating your words, there are bound to be problems and that is exactly the kind of situation we have with this government.”
Barka, while announcing his decision to leave the APC, said that he could no longer stay with Governor Jibrilla Bindow in APC based on his (Bindow)’s deceptive ways and his inability to keep to his promises.
Barka continued, “Bindow runs a divisive government and is never a man that could be trusted.
“We left the PDP back then in 2014 because of impunity but surprisingly APC has become worse off when it comes to impunity.
“This is a government I helped to build, spending my resources and time but today they hardly recognize whether we exist at all.”
