“In the primary place, the rationale everybody should join politics is to serve the people. The essence of state is to figure for the poor masses and ensure justice.
“My main mission of joining the APC is because I even have seen justice, I even have seen development and that i have seen desire for the leadership at the very best peak to sacrifice their personal comfort just to form the poor people to feel good. So i’m within the APC to deliver. i’m within the APC to assist the people.”
Lawan, who introduced the senator to the APC leaders, emphasised that Adamawa state is an APC state, adding that the accident that happened to make what’s today ruling Adamawa would be addressed.
