Governor Murtala Nyako of Adamawa State has declared that the group of five Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governors, who earlier warned that the ruling party was tilting towards the precipice, has been vindicated by the decision of other party leaders to join them in the ‘New PDP.’
Nyako, who is one of the five governors, spoke while addressing a mammoth crowd of supporters at Ribadu Square in Yola yesterday.
The governor reiterated the resolve of the Abubakar Kawu Baraje-led faction to fight on until the PDP was steered back on course.
According to him, “These are people who consider themselves as having divine powers to do and undo as they wish, trample on the rights of others with impunity and see their wrong decisions as final and binding. Pharoah has passed away, what more of mini pharaohs of today,” he said.
He urged the people of Adamawa to see the recent fractionalization of the PDP as a battle between evil and good.
“We are doing it to protect our dignity and peaceful coexistence here,” he said.
“People take all sorts of drugs and intoxicants and take decisions when they are actually drunk. Abuja people do not like us, they prefer the few who drink and do drugs.”
