The All Progressive Congress (APC) in Adamawa State has awarded Hajiya Aisha Dahiru Ahmed automatic ticket for the 2019 general elections.At her formal declaration to contest for the senate in 2019, the chief of staff to Governor Mohammed Jibrilla Bindow, Alhaji Abdullraman Abba Jimeta , said that those wishing to contest the seat should not waste their resources, since the party has reserved the ticket for Aishatu.

“ We are not stopping anyone from contesting the seat, but if you are too stubborn to challenge Aishatu for the seat you will blame yourself for what ever result you get at the primaries election.”

The state Acting chairman, Alhaji Ibrahim Bilal, who collaborated the position of Jimeta, said that the party will not accept aspirants that cannot win elections for the party.

Bilal pointed out that Hajiya Aishatu has all the credentials to win elections for the party without politically stressing the party for campaigns.“We all know her records when she was a member of House of Representatives, her projects are still standing to confirm what she can do for her people, so we cannot afford to allow these golden political asserts to be taking away be another political party,” he said.

Hajiya Aishatu told the executive members of the APC that she was in the party’s secretariat to declare her intention to contest for the Adamawa central senatorial zone, currently represented by senator Abdullaziz Nyako.

“We are here today not for speech making or campaign, but simply to register our intention to the party I am presenting myself humble as a candidate for Adamawa central senatorial seat in 2019, by the grace of God,” she said. Aishatu stated that the tenure extension of the state executives was a double joy for the family of APC members, noting that it has brought to an end political crisis in the state.
