Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Amina Ab­dul­lahi, Yola

Gov­er­nor Umaru Jib­rilla Bin­dow of Adamawa State said at the week­end that ed­u­ca­tional cer­tifi­cate is not nec­es­sar­ily a guar­an­tee that elected of­fice hold­ers will per­form as ex­pected.

The gov­er­nor, who stated this at the flag­ging off of a 37.5 kilo­me­ter road in Shel­leng Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Area of the state, said the essence of lead­er­ship was ser­vice de­liv­ery to the peo­ple.

“Lead­er­ship does not de­pend on speak­ing English vo­cab­u­lar­ies, but by ful­fill­ing the prom­ises made to the peo­ple, es­pe­cially the poor,” he said.

Bin­dow com­mended the work­ing re­la­tion­ship be­tween the ex­ec­u­tive and leg­is­la­ture in the state, say­ing he would con­tinue to carry along the peo­ple at the grass­roots who voted him into power.

“For those that feel I do not de­serve this seat, they should ques­tion the Almighty for grant­ing me the seat,” he also said.
