The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Adamawa state has said the people of and the electorates are happy with the present administration led by Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri for changing the under-development narratives of the state in less than two years in office.
The state’s ruling party then said those plotting the government’s downfall in 2023 would be shocked and put to shame.
PDP state organising secretary Hon. Hamza Bello while reacting to a press conference addressed by some political parties accusing the governor of abysmal performance, said the performance of the governor in less than two years has put him far ahead of APC, other parties.
“If you look at what his excellency is doing in terms of changing the narrative of the state from under development to development, in the area of security, education, health, infrastructural development in both urban and rural areas among many other giant strides, you will know that no amount of gang up against him will succeed instead those plotting his downfall will be put to shame because the people are happy with him and behind his administration,” he said.
According to him, the fate of the governor and PDP in 2023 lies with the people and electorates of Adamawa state who he said were happy with the current administration.
On the recent defections by some prominent politicians from PDP, African Democratic Congress (ADC) and Social Democratic Party (SDP) to the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC), Hamza noted that the party was not bothered ahead of 2023.
He further said PDP have been receiving more defectors such as former commissioners, special advisers, gubernatorial aspirants, House of Assembly of Assembly members and other critical stakeholders from APC, ADC, SDP and other political parties in the last 12 months.
He said already the new defectors are mobilisers in their various wards and units.
Hamza debunked allegations of lack of internal democracy in PDP, and said since the inception of the current excos, primaries are always conducted in line with internal party democratic practice which metamorphosed to 2019 election successes.
