A former Vice President Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has call for the ‘proper fixing’ of the nation’s politics in the interest of national development.

He made the call Saturday night in Abuja at a grand reception in his honour over his recent appointment as the Waziri (Prime Minister) Adamawa organised by the Adamawa Community Association FCT Abuja.

Atiku’s appointment to the position in June followed the death of the former Waziri, Alhaji Muhammad Abba in April.
The Waziri is the most senior kingmaker in the emirate and serves as close confidant and adviser to the Lamido.
Also, Atiku’s son, Aliyu was appointed as the new Turaki Adamawa to take over from his father.
“I also implore us to fix our politics as well. We can have our political differences and political flights but let us know when to apply the brakes to ensure that what is getting to Adamawa, be it projects, provisions or positions are not lost because of our dirty quarrels and what some people call pull him down syndrome. I believe we will be remembered not by the number of people we pulled down but by the number of people we lifted up.

“For those of us who God has spared our lives up till now, how do we easily forgot the contributions of Air Marshall Barde or late M D Suleiman, the Inspector General of Police, people like Senator Mahmood Waziri or late Justice Buna? Or how do we forget people like Nuhu Ribadu, Babachir David Lawal or Emmanuel Musa Bello just to mention a few? We even gave our President, Muhammad I Buhari his very smart and beautiful wife (Aisha), an accomplished professional in her own right,” Atiku said.

He said the state’s achievements and contribution to the nation was not an exhaustive but just to underscore that Adamawa has produced distinguished sons and daughters who have contributed and have continued to contribute to national development.

He said, “I stand to be challenged by any state in the country that has given so much to this country. So don’t let anybody tell you that we have not contributed or that we have a basket case.”
The state Governor Muhammadu Jibrilla Bindow and President of ACA Alhaji Sali Isa Bello who was a former Head of Service of the Federation among others commended Atiku for his contributions to the state and nation, urging others especially the youths to emulate him
