Do not drag president Ahmed Bola Tinibu and Nyesom Wike into Nasarawa Politics, face your Travails
The Opposition People’s Democratic party in Nasarawa state has called on the state governor, Abdullahi Sule, to face the challenges of developing the state as the time for politics was over
The party also urged the governor to leave president Ahmed Bola Tinibu and the FCT minister, Nyesom Wike, out of the politics of the state and face his political travails.
In a statement released on Friday, issuedand signed by the state Chairman of the party, Chief Francis Orogu, the party has observed with grave concern the governor’s ability to settle down like his counterparts in other states make an impact after his four years and three months in the state.
We have observed that after four years and three years in office governor Abdullahi Sule was yet to commission a single remarkable project in the state ratherin all the years the governor has not seen the need to set an agenda for his administration.
It is disturbing that the APC governor in Nasarawa is only hiding on the guise of collaborating with the former governor of River State who has just been appointed FCT minister to discuss infrasctural development and security between Nasarawa and the FCT when even his homestead is the headquarters of kidnappers many whom have been carrying out their mission ìn the FCT.
We strongly advise Mr. Wike to enquire from Gov. Sule, why are all the terrorist haranguing the Federal Capital based in Nasarawa? Wike should further note that the Crises is Benue is mainly at the border with Nasarawa as well as those from Taraba, Plateau, Kogi, and South of Kaduna, among others. Of late, even gun runners arrested in Enugu and Zamfara state claimed to have taken off from Lafia, the State Capital.
Under Sule, an APC sitting state chairman, Mr. Philip Tatari was killed in the metropolis, and nothing happened. A former federal commissioner National population commission, Alh. Zakari Umaru himself, a classmate and close door neighbour in Gudi of Governor Sule, was murdered in his house after struggling for four hours. This is just a part of the litany of several others, including emirs, chiefs, farmers, and civilians, have been killed or kidnapped. Prof Onje Gye wado, former Deputy Governor, was kidnapped whole former minister of information Labaran Maku was attacked twice. Sadly and only recently, two army generals were kidnapped. It is worthy to note that all the hills in Nasarawa state are currently occupied by fundamentalist terrorists and persons of Fulani or foreign descent. There is a substantial number of terror groups from all over West Africa camped in Nasarawa, and they are terrorising everywhere up to Northern Anambra and Enugu states.
We believe that a conscious commitment to governance by Gov. Sule will reduce or eliminate these security challenges as it is the Non performance and insecurity that led to the rejection of Gov. Sule in the last election.
Therefore, we call on the Federal Government to closely look into the competence of the present state government to handle the affairs of the state with a view to providing additional support noting that the Army operates a brigade in Doma and a mobile police training centre located in one of the most vulnerable areas of the state.
We want to use this ample opportunity once again to draw the attention of the Nasarawa state governor to the fact that the time for politics was over, as such the governor should not use the time meant to develop the state to drag Mr president, Ahmed Tinubu and FCT Nyisom Wike into the politics of the state.
The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Nasarawa state hereby call on the well meaning citizens of the state and other Nigerians including the president, Minister Nyisom Wike to kindly assist the the state by drawing the attention of the governor to concern himself with the development of the state rather than canvassing for support and seeking help everywhere to influence the tribunal to give judgement in his favour.
According to the statement, when did Nyesom Wike suddenly become the ally of governor Abdullahi Sule, whom we reliably gathered, is seeking support under the guise of collaborating with the minister to obtain favour from the tribunal.
We, therefore, called on President Ahmed Bola Tinibu and Minister Nyesom Wike
Who are known for their stand on fairness and justice to prevail on the tribunal to resist any form of temptation to stand for justice, fair play in their assigned responsibility bestored on them by president Ahmed Bola Tinibu in Nasarawa state.
