With the 2015 general elections virtually over, in Adamawa state, the
game came to a close with victory for senator Bindow Umaru Jibrilla of
the All Progressive Congress (APC) who polled 362,359 votes.
He was closely followed by Engineer Markus Natina Gundiri of the
Social Democratic Party (SDP) who polled 181,806 votes.
Nuhu Ribadu of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) came third with
98,917 while Dr. Ahmed Modibbo of the Peoples Democratic Movement who
polled a distant 32,985 votes.
However, on Sunday when results started coming in form the local
government areas, Malam Ribadu threw in the towel when results had
come form the twelveth local government area out of the 21 LGA’s.
In a letter to the media by his media aide Abdulaziz Abdulaziz, Ribadu
said initially he had looked forward to serving his people but as it
looked now that is not possible.
Results were however released by 2:10am on Monday by Professor Geofrey
Okobua of Federal University Wukari.
Meanwhile, the Social Democratic Party who came to the scene quite
late has two members in the House of Assembly while the PDP has a
consolation of one member for the state assembly.

Deputy Speaker Adamawa House of Assembly Honourable Laori Kwamoti.
The APC has 22 members for the state assembly while the PDP also has
one House of Representative elected member in the person of Adamu

Representatives while all three senators elect are APC.

parties were kept at bay.
