Ahead of the All Progressives Congress (APC) primary elections, officials of the party in Hong Local Government Area (LGA) of Adamawa State have unanimously endorsed and adopted Rt ( Hon.) Yusuf Buba, member representing Gombi/Hong Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives as their sole candidate and flag-bearer for the seat.
This was contained in letter dispatched to the lawmaker by the officials, a copy of which was made available to newsmen by Nkem Anyata-Lafia, Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs to Buba on Monday in Abuja.
The party officials indicated that the endorsement became necessary as a result of what they identified as the lawmaker’s “track records.”
In the letter signed by the entire 27 officials of the party at its Hong Local Government Area chapter of the state, the officials, who are all automatic delegates in the primary election that will determine the standard bearer of the party, said they remained resolute to queue behind the candidature of their current Rep member.
“We, the undersigned being Executives of APC Hong Local Government have unanimously endorsed Hon. Yusuf Buba Yakub as our flag bearer for Gombi/Hong Federal Constituency for 2023 general election.
“His track records have convinced us to endorse him for continuity,” it read.
In his response, Buba, who is also Chairman, Committee on Foreign Affairs of the current House, said he was humbled by the trust and confidence his people reposed in him.
He also added that a renewed mandate for him at the Green Chambers of the National Assembly would mean better service-delivery for the good people of his constituency.
