Dr. Mahmoud Halilu, the brother of Aisha Buhari has picked the Adamawa state governorship nomination and interest form for the 2019 elections.
He is now set to contest against the incumbent governor of the state Jibril Bindow for the 2019 governorship poll.
Reportedly, Mahmoud’s plan to unseat the incumbent who is from Adamawa North Senatorial District is causing ripples within the state, especially as there are talks that he is relying on Abuja to win the primaries.
It is still unclear if the First Lady is backing Mahmoud whose many electronic bill boards have flooded Yola.
Now that Mahmoud has picked the governorship ticket in the APC, the governor who is in control of the party’s structure, may have to use another party to seek re-election in 2019.
