The Talban of Adamawa State, Daniel Bwala, believes president Muhammadu Buhari’s administration has directly touched his people who are willing to repay the favour on Saturday.
According to Mr Bwala, the people of the state would not forget many security crises that happened there before Buhari’s assumption of office.
He claimed that some people in the state had never experienced good governance until the advent of the President and the APC government in the state.
Though he acknowledged that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, hails from the state, he said the state would still vote in favour of Buhari.
“In Adamawa State, it will be difficult for us to forget that without the advent of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration, some of us had relocated from our homes and the state to other states.
“We had lost loved ones due to the uncontrolled activities of the members of the Boko Haram in the past. We were drastically reducing in number in our families and we even buried our sons, daughters while women were burying their husbands as well.
“Our daughters were being used as carriers of bombs by the terrorists. It was such a bad and terrible experience for us when we cast our minds back to these incidents.
“But things are better now. Our farmers are now going to their farms without any fear of attack whatsoever. Unlike before when they were dying of hunger and their farms were taken over by the terrorists, the reverse is the case now.
“We can see that with what the President has done, the people would want to show appreciation by giving him their votes for another four years to enable him to consolidate on the feasible achievements.
“Though we also have an illustrious son who is running for the same office, but we have Buhari that has been tested and in him we have hope.”
