“We are watching with keen interest the unfolding events in the party and wish to draw the attention of the NWC on dangers of imposing governorship candidate.

“As umpire, the NWC should ensure level playing ground to all aspirants,” the group said.

Also in a separate briefing, another group, Adamawa Youth for Change and Consolidation in its statement read by it chairman, Mr Menan Kongo, called on President Buhari to intervened in the development, alleging that some people dropping his name were responsible for the development.

“We are using this medium to call on President Buhari who is known for justice to come out and disowned the people using his name for political blackmail.”
