Group cautions APC over Jamilu Gwamna

A group in the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Gombe state, the Gombe State APC Youth Assembly, has kicked against the consideration of the former PDP governorship aspirant in the state, Jamilu Isiyaku Gwamna, for any critical position.

In a press release, chairman of the group, Jonathan Gideon, alleged that available information at their disposal revealed that Gwamna was busy lobbying to be appointed minister from the state.

He said Gwamna was not qualified for the nomination as he has not stayed long enough in the party to be considered for such a position, warning that his nomination will be disastrous to Governor Inuwa Yahaya and the APC.

Gideon said Jamilu Gwamna only defected to the APC shortly after he lost the governorship ticket of the PDP.

He wondered why deserving APC chieftains in the state, who worked for party for a long time are not selected for this important position.

“Jamilu Gwamna only cross-carpeted to the APC the same day he lost the PDP primaries. He is still without question, the major sponsor of the PDP in the state. This indeed calls for concern, especially if such a man is even considered for, let alone given any political post in an APC government when there is an abundance of APC loyalists who have never relented in their support of the party no matter the weather”, he opined.

The APC youth stated that it was dangerous for the party to fraternise with ‘double faced politicians’, considering the amount of sabotage the party and President Muhammadu Buhari suffered from such elements during his first tenure.

“The people the president needs now are those who will help him to accomplish his development agenda not saboteurs. We thank God that the leaders of the National Assembly are not political enemies of the president. And we believe there will be harmonious relationship between them and the president this time round for the good of the country. Therefore, the president should also have good lieutenants in his cabinet to help him provide good governance”, he said.
