The APC primary in Adamawa state has been clouded in controversy over how it was conducted which left trails of petitions in its wake from both Mahmood Halilu Ahmed (brother to first lady Aisha Buhari) and Nuhu Ribadu, demanding that the primary be thrown out, as both aspirants maintained that there was no primary ever held in Adamawa state.

However, the Oserheimen Osumbor led Primary Elections Appeal Panel had dismissed the petitions and declared the incumbent governor, Jibrilla Bindow as the winner in the contest.
