Governor Jibrilla Bindow of Adamawa state has been accused of not having the basic educational qualification to contest for the office of governor.
Younger brother of first lady Aisha Buhari, Mahmood Halilu who made this accusation disclosed this in an interview on Wednesday, October 10, Vanguard reports.
Halilu who was one of the aspirants who contested the primaries with Bindow on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) insisted that the party would lose the state if Governor Bindow is fielded as the candidate.
“I looked at the circumstances of the party under the current executive governor who is alleged not to have even attended formal education at all. As we speak he is having issues with the basic minimal qualification to contest the election.
“It reflects even in the way he even runs the state. I would have been the least person to throw my hat in the ring,” he was quoted to have said.

However, a senior government official who charged him to go to court if he disputes the governor’s qualification dismissed his allegations.
“The court is there, what is he doing? This is a man who parades himself as a doctor which is a honourary degree he got from Crescent University. What he is doing is to bring down the image and way his sister is viewed in the state.
“What business does he do that he was able to mobilise N4 billion to fight a primary election? Today he says he is a farmer, but no one knows his farm.
"After that he says he is into oil and gas, but we cannot see his fuel station,” the official said.
