Alex Badeh, former chief of defence staff, says Adamawa, where he hail from, would have been better than Lagos if not for the disagreement among some of its leaders.

He said this on Monday while delivering a goodwill message at a public forum organised by the Adamawa government in Yola, the state capital.

Badeh, who lauded the transformation recorded in the state under the current administration, said he had been unable to go to Mubi, his hometown, to see the development there because he has nowhere to stay.

Badeh said his house in Mubi had been destroyed by insurgents.

“I was not even able to go to Mubi because I have nowhere to stay; everything I have has been destroyed,” Badeh said.

“Adamawa state from independence has produced people that would have made the state better than Lagos but it is like we (leaders) have never liked ourselves.”

He commended Muhammadu Bindow, governor of the state, for his achievements and told the leaders engaged in power tussle to think about of working for the state.

Badeh also lauded former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, who he said had distinguished himself in bringing development to the state in terms of establishing companies and generating employment

Mubi was taken over by insurgents in October 2014 before it was later recaptured by the military.
