Senator Aisha Dahiru Ahmed Binani a female senator representing Adamawa Central senatorial district has declared her intention to contest for Adamawa governorship election in 2023.
Senator Aisha, a prominent politician in Adamawa will challenge the incumbent Governor Ahmadu Fintri if she eventually gets her party ticket to contest.
Aisha Binani who declared her intention on Monday in Yola said it was high time to make her position known considering the pressure she faces from Adamawa citizens to contest for the governorship seat in the state.
“Indeed the pressure has become so much in the last couple of months, that I am forced to make my position clear.
“I reflected, prayed over it and consulted widely from across all the 21 local government areas of the state and arrived at the conclusion that, hundreds of calls cannot be wrong.
“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a step; today, March 14, 2022, I, Senator Aishatu Dahiru Ahmed ( Binani) have accepted “Kiran Jama’a” ( calls of the people) which I see as a call to serve.
“I formally declared my intention to contest for the office of Governor of Adamawa State Insha Allah”, she says.
Spectators say Binani is considered strong enough to challenge the incumbent governor in view of her political pedigree.
