The people of Adamawa State have discovered a leader, a man with a passion to serve, deliver and recreate a new haven that truly suggests the state as a land of beauty. His knowledge in government is measureless, his experience in leadership is far-flung and his far-reaching experience in business to woo investors of all races and countries has stretched out to many nations of the world.
Mustapha Umar Madawaki is now a household name with his Otumba title that has become a slogan of political change mantra in Adamawa. The man has no doubt a discovery of wisdom, one of the state’s sons that has what it takes to liberate, emancipate and salvage the state from the clutches of underdevelopment and put life, meaning, adding value into the political lifeline of the state.
In him is the girdle of strength to lead well, he holds in his hand, the rod of direction that will take Adamawa to a haven of rest.
He is a beacon of hope, a glorious flying horse for the people of Adamawa State. It’s a beckoning and a clarion call to young and old to support Otumba because he is a man to beat at the gubernatorial race of the state.
I have searched, I have analyzed, among all the people clamoring to be the next governor of Adamawa State, whether in PDP, APC, NNPP, or whatever party, the Labour Party (LP) candidate in the person of Mustapha Madawaki (Otumba) caps it all, and he has got all the qualities of a better governor to come 2023 for Adamawa State.
The people have spoken in many ways to need him for the revered office. He gave life to APC where he sojourned and aspired to be the party’s flag bearer. He put a good fight, a struggle that was considered by many party men that he is the best for the party to win the 2023 election. But divergent interests and political hullabaloo of some mischief people worked against him to lose in the primary elections.
With his resilience and his good intentions for the state, the people with great voice beckoned on him to join the Labour Party, this is the party I now see hope for Adamawa people because a Man with a glaring ability to lead and secure the destiny of his people is now with the governorship ticket to wrestle out power from PDP government in 2023.
May I now shout it out and make it boldly in the tablet’s heart of all and sundry that Mr. Otumba remains the best candidate for the people of the state.
His vision and dream of a new Adamawa state have made him the number one Gubernatorial aspirant to have a blueprint of what he prepared to deliver to the people of the state. He is the first to tour the state and revealed to the twenty local government areas of the mineral resources they have and what he can do for them in his first four years.
May I, therefore, say that the greatest mistake that each voter can make is to vote against Labour Party? But a vote for Umar is the best way to get the state on yet another rail of development. A vote for Otumba is a value-added change, a wisdom that will set free everyone from a retrogressive government to a government of the people by the people and for the people. It’s a progressive government with Umar saddled in the affairs of leadership. Adamawa will be secure, free, and well positioned to grow in all facets of life.
The moribund companies and industries owned by State Government like Mubi burnt bricks, Scope, Adamawa homes, savings, and many more will be revived and empowered to increase the internally generated revenue.
This Man has the wherewithal, Otumba is more than able to turn around the state for World development. He has the potential to attract global attention, he is well equipped to make Adamawa earned the world news of positive stories of a captured Boko Haram state to a state that will capture the attention of the global economy. A state with a backward education to a revamped education forward every state. He is going to gear up the health Centres, the blocked waterways will run once again water in all the pipes of every locality in the urban towns and even villages.
I see Umar as the best and hope and the life-changing gear of the development of the state. This is who I can confidently call on all voters of Adamawa State to bargain their votes, rally their support around him, and give him the winning votes for a total victory to chase out ineptitude and selfish government agents who are in government to enrich themselves.
Otumba in Labour Party is salvation has come to all Adamawa Sons and Daughters, cast your vote wisely. It’s not a party affair it is a personality affair. The call is just simple, thumps up for Umar and on the ballot, it should be a thumbs down for the labor party come 2023. It’s the only way out. A way into another realm of development.
Otumba and Labor Party is for the emancipation of Adamawa state. The last and final option. This is my stand, my honest view in the interest of every one of us in Adamawa state.
