The national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, has stated that the nation was under an evil attack by enemies of its unity.

Tukur made this known in London while speaking against the backdrop of the Boko Haram insurgency during the “2013 Nigeria Arise Award”, media chat organised by BEN TV. He also called for collective effort to curb the security challenges posed by these enemies of progress: “It is an evil that we must all challenge, don’t give it any other name other than evil, as a big party, I am calling on leaders of all the political parties, and this is not politics, Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), and all other political parties should come together to fight this evil,” He added.

The PDP national chairman also noted that the media had a key role to play in creating awareness to enable all Nigerians wake up to the challenge which was fast distabilising the nation.

On the recent state pardon granted to Chief Diepreye Alameisegha , the former Governor of Bayelsa, Tukur said: “it’s the guilty that is pardoned, not the man who did the right thing… It is not the quantum of guilt, but the admittance of guilt based on self confession,” he added, calling for the understanding of Nigerians, saying the pardon was in good faith.
