Do Not Drag Tinibu, Wike Into Nasarawa Politics-PDP

The Nasarawa State chapter of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on Gov. Abdullahi Sule not to drag President Bola Tinubu into the politics of the state and the ongoing dispute at the tribunal over the outcome of March 18, governorship election.

This is contained in a statement signed by Mr Francis Orogu, Nasarawa State PDP Chairman and made available to newsmen on Saturday in Lafia.

It would be recalled that Mr David Ombugadu, governorship candidate of PDP is challenging the declaration of Gov. Abdullahi Sule of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as winner of the 2023 governorship polls.

The tribunal during its sitting of Sept. 14 reserved judgement on the petition after counsels of the petitioner and first, second and third respondents adopted their final written addresses and promised to communicate the counsels on the day the judgement would be delivered.

However, the governor paid an official visit to Nyisom Wike, Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) on Friday, Sept. 14 to seek for collaboration. 

The PDP Chairman said that the governor had nothing to show for the more than four years he has been piloting the affairs of the state.

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.

“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.

“It is disturbing that the governor is only hiding on the guise of collaborating with the federal government to tackle the infrastructural and security challenges facing the state,” the PDP Chairman added.

Orogu further said that a lot of kidnapping, killings and other crimes are going on unabated in the last four years under the watch of the governor.

He added that in the last four years, sitting Chairman of APC, Philip Tatari, Former Federal Commissioner of National Population Commission Zakari Kigbu, and many others were murdered.

He also said that the convey of the Deputy Gov. Emmanuel Akabe was attacked and some police personnel attached to the deputy governor were killed in the process.

He added that the house of Labaran Maku, Former Minister of Information and his family members were attacked three times and lives were lost during one of the attack.

He explained that there are a lot of other kidnapping and killings going on in various parts of the state.

“Prof. Onje Gyewado, former deputy governor, Emirs, Chiefs, farmers, and civilians, have been killed or kidnapped and nothing serious was done by the state government.

“”We believe that a conscious commitment to governance by Gov. Sule will reduce or eliminate these security challenges,” he added.

He therefore, appealed to the federal government to support the army, police and other security agencies to tackle the increasing insecurity in Nasarawa State. (NAN).
