Bilal said all the 138 executives of the party from state to ward level endorsed Bindow.

The state executives had earlier opted for indirect primaries to pick candidates for 2019, an option that met wide condemnation.

However, Bilal said the state excos was ready to ensure Bindow’s victory under direct or indirect option.

The decision might have sealed the fate of brother of President Buhari’s wife Mahmoud Halilu otherwise known as Modi.

He visited the secretariat on Monday to formally declare his governorship aspiration.

Also, a former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Nuhu Ribadu picked the nomination form.

But he was yet to make his formal declaration before the party at the state level as at Saturday.

Bindow while speaking at the APC secretariat gave himself a pass mark in the last three years he has been at the helm of affairs in the state.
