Adamawa guber: CPC alleges plot to assassinate Marwa, Ribadu, others

Kingsley Omonobi
ABUJA—With just over a week to Adamawa State governor-ship election, Congress for Progressive Change, CPC, has raised alarm over attempts to assassi-nate its flag bearer, Gene-ral Mohamed Marwa (rtd.), his running mate, Chief John Manasah, Senator Jubril Aminu, Boni Haruna and Mr. Nuhu Ribadu.

In a statement by Chief Manasah, Director-General of Marwa Campaign Organisation, CPC disclosed that it was in possession of a very disturbing report detailing the evil plots of one of the gubernatorial candidates.

CPC gave the names of others to be assassinated or kidnapped to include Chief Joel Madaki, Senator Folashade Bent, Alhaji Bawa Garba, Dr. Hassan Lawan, former governor Boni Haruna and General Haladu Hannaniya. The party alleged that several meetings were held in several places to strategise for the particular candidate.

The party also alleged that a committee, chaired by a former member of the National Assembly, was tasked with doing everything to ensure the candidate wins.

CPC alleged that another committee, charged with the task of kidnapping or elimination of General Marwa and others, was headed by the candidate.

The party said: “While we are calling on security agencies to take note and be proactive, we would like to warn the candidate concerned that we in CPC are not cowards or intimidated by these evil machinations.

“While we don’t have power, money or other instruments in our hands, God is certainly on our side. The people of Adamawa State are also with CPC. People require change, they need good and honest government that deliver dividends of democracy.

“To this end, we call on the good people of Adamawa State and our supporters to remain firm and vigilant. On our part, we wish to assure that we are for a free, fair and violence-free election.

“We want to make it clear that we shall resist any attempt by anyone to rig or snatch ballot boxes.

“We will always act within the provisions of the law.”
