A chieftain of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Hon. Ibrahim Dasuki Salihu Nakande, has said that the appointment of the new PDP chairman, Alhaji Ahmad Adamu Mu’azu, would not in any way help in instilling discipline in the party.
He said Shekarau and Bafarawa are paper weights that lack principles.
Nakande who is a chieftain of the All Progressive Congress (APC), and also the Plateau State Secretary of its Interim Management Committee (IMC), made the assertion in his office, in a chat with media men in Jos.
On the appointment of the new PDP Chairman, he said: “I don’t think that the appointment of the new Chairman of the PDP will change anything because the PDP is an undisciplined party, and it will take a major paradigm shift in their collective thinking to be able to change things over night.
“I think that what we should be preparing for, unfortunately for Ahmad Mu’azu who happens to be my brother, will soon be a former Chairman and will join, us in the APC.”
On Ibrahim Shekarau and Attahiru Bafarawa’s defection, Nakande said: “Shekarau is a paper weight in Kano he has had his opportunity. As a governor, he broke the jinx of being the first governor to have been elected two times, but he blew all the opportunity. And talking about his movement from the APC to the PDP, it showed that he lacks principle; if he had principle and having been the building block of the party, he would have stood the course, and waited until the crisis was over in the party.”
“On Bafarawa, when you match the achievements of Governor Wamakko, Bafarawa does not have followership in the state.”
According to him, the electoral timetable recently released by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was skewed in order to favour President Goodluck Jonathan in the 2015 elections.
He said: “Despite what Prof. Jega is saying we believe that there are some subterranean influences in the decision to put the presidential election ahead, because the implication of putting the presidential election ahead is that they expect the president to win the election, and, therefore, to bring a bandwagon effect on subsequent elections for the governorship and Houses of Assembly elections.No tags for this post.
