He said all elected and appointed officials in the state would work for Atiku as soon as he declares his intention to contest.
“The entire Adamawa state government is firmly behind the former Vice President; where ever he (Atiku) goes, the state government is behind him.
“From the Governor to the Deputy governor, the Secretary to the state government, Commissioners, the special advisers and special assistants and all other political appointees and members of the State House of Assembly are behind Atiku Abubakar”.
Jimeta observed that Atiku Abubakar had done well for the economy of the state and the nation and that the people of Adamawa will reciprocate his generosity.
“Such an important figure in Adamawa State, we as a government have nothing to pay him back, than to support all his political ambitions and to give him our support if he declares to run for any political office”, he added.
