An ardent supporter of the Executive Governor of Adamawa State, Rt. Hon Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri, Alhaji Ahmadu Saidu Dauda Madagali has sent unreserved apologies to Bamanga Tukur and Senator Jibril Aminu over comments many described as reckless and needless.
Madagali is a known staunch supporter of Fintiri and expressed worries that he was misquoted and as many have misinterpreted his statements made in good fate.
In a show of regret, he said both Tukur and Jibril are respected Adamawa individuals who brought about development in many aspects in the state, as such, he cannot be so unwise to disrespect them.
According to him, it is not in his nature or to disrespect anyone of them or anybody as far as Adamawa is concerned.
He however, said that although the video in circulation was doctored by the opposition party to bring about political rancour and heat up the polity unduly.
He called on the elder statesmen to consider his apology and forgive him because he is like a son to both of them.
Dauda in a remorseful mood, tendered the apology during a press briefing at the state PDP headquarters in Yola, saying that he comes from a decent home that respects to elders, stressing that it is a must to observe such norms by everyone.
In humility, he asked for forgiveness, saying it is not in his character to insult stakeholders like Bamanga Tukur and Prof. Jibril Aminu.
It would be recalled that a viral video of twenty nine seconds dominated the cyberspace of many Adamawa social media platforms, where he allegedly stated that Bamanga and Aminu in all their glories cannot make any of their sons to be governor of the state.
But through God’s enabling power according to him, Governor Ahmadu, a son of a nobody is now the executive Governor of the state.
