MAIDUGURIâ€” AS the 2011 general elections draw nearer, a group known as 2011 Dibal for Governorship Organization, has called on Governor Ali Modu Sheriff to endorse his Deputy, Alhaji Adamu Shettima Dibal, for the governorship race as he has been loyal and fully committed to the administration for eight years.
Chairman of the group who is also a renowned Islamic Scholar, Mallam Ibrahim Gomari, made the call in an interview with newsmen in Maiduguri. He said that the purported move by the incumbent to hand over to his younger brother, Alhaji Mala Sheriff, is totally uncalled for, and that in the interest of peace, unity and prosperity, such plan will not be accepted, as according to him, politics is not a game of family inheritance.
The Islamic Scholar stressed that Dibal has all it takes to contest for governor of the state in 2011.
