Governor Mohammed Jibrilla Bindow of Adamawa state has begged people of the State for forgiveness, adding that one could die anytime.
The outgoing Governor described leading the state as a difficult task.
He said he believed he might have wronged some people as Governor.
He said this while giving what could be termed valedictory speeches at separate events in Yola, the State’s capital yesterday.
Bindow asked that he be forgiven of all his “wrongs in the spirit of the current Ramadan season.”
The Governor who was elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, 2015, was defeated by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the last election.
Speaking at a ceremony in the Banquet Hall of the Government House where he launched the new Adamawa state health insurance scheme, Bindow said, “I do know, of course, and many have acknowledged that Adamawa is a complex state to govern. It has not been easy, but I have tried my best these past years,” according to The Nation.
Speaking further he added, “He has been a wonderful person to work with, he has been like an elder brother, he has been my mentor from whom I have derived much value,” he said of his deputy, Martins Babale.
Earlier on, while inaugurating the state chief judge of the customary court, James Balami, the Governor said the ceremony might mean the last time in his life that he would meet with most of the people in attendance.
“I may be seeing most of you for the last time. Not just because I am leaving government but as a mortal, one could die any time,” he said.
