The Senator representing Adamawa North senatorial district in the National Assembly, Ishaku Abbo has warned of imminent implosion in the Adamawa state chapter of the party if the leadership fails to reverse the disqualification of 24 local government chairmanship aspirants who were disqualified from contesting the upcoming council polls in the state by the screening committee.
In a statement issued on Saturday through his Facebook account, the senator who received public condemnation recently for assaulting a nursing mother at an adult sex shop in Abuja, said the PDP in the state have failed to learn from its past with its inability to manage electoral success.
Abbo accused the chairman of the screening committee, Kwanmoti Laori an ally of the state governor, Ahmadu Fintiri of executing a religious,tribal and selfish agenda. He said he will soon address the media in the issue soon.
“24 PDP Leaders were disqualified from contesting the forth coming LGA Election in Adamawa state. I learnt that the Screening committee was chaired by Hon. Kwanmoti Laori a known ally of the Governor of Adamawa State; Rt. Hon. Ahmadu Fintiri.
“The disqualified Aspirants which Include the Deputy State Chairman of the party and other state and Local Government executive committee members were disqualified on frivolous grounds and some on outright lies to avoid conducting a free and fair primary elections for fear that their anointed candidates will lose.
“As one of the leaders of the party in Adamawa state and a major stakeholder, I want the PDP in Adamawa state to quickly reverse such devilish decisions so that the party will not be plunged into a crisis of no return. Can’t we manage success for once?
“Must we become dictators overnight even though we are beneficiaries of a free and fair elections in Adamawa state in 2019 elections as allowed by President Mohammadu Buhari? Why do PDP want to blow the bridge that brought us to power?
“So the PDP In Adamawa state has not learnt any lesson from their 2015 dangerous primary elections manipulations that sunk the party into the gutter?
“Leaders more especially elected ones in positions of trust MUST live beyond personal interests arising from ego, religious or ethnic interests in the overall interests of the Nigerian people.
“While I believe that the appeal committee will do justice and reverse such SELF SERVING, SELF HELPING SHAME, I Call on the party to immediately set up a committee to probe these enemies of our party and make their findings public.
“If we cannot learn from our 2015 Intra party wrangling, let us learn from the APC Adamawa state Chapter’s pre 2019 elections intra party Cold War that later became a full blown political tsunami. Today they are out of power.
“I have called the state Party Chairman and have written the National Chairman so that the PDP In Adamawa state will be saved. For when (not if) it happen don’t say I didn’t warn them. I will write you more.
“Kindly save this post you will remember it. I will soon address the press.”
