Governor Murtala Nyako of Adamawa State has declared that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will continue to experience one crisis or the other until the deluge of injustices currently perpetrated by a factional national chairman of the party, Alhaji BamangaTukur, is redressed.
He also warned that the crises if not quickly resolved, will affect the party’s chances in elections across the nation.
Nyako spoke at the Government House Yola, the state capital when he received a delegation of the new PDP from Taraba State led by its chairman, Dr. Abdulmumini Vaki, on a solidarity visit.
Nyako, one of the seven aggrieved governors, said the current political drama playing out in the party were not unexpected going by the level of impunity and subversion of justice in the party.
Nyako said: “The level of impunity being promoted has reached a level where 5 is greater than 27 and 16 is greater than 19.
“Even a kindergarten pupil will tell you that the arithmetic is highly criminalised”.
Nyako said any party seeking peace and progress cannot tolerate such high level of injustice that has now become the norm in the ruling party.
“Nigerians cannot tolerate this high-handedness any longer. That is why you are seeing protests from every cranny of the nation and for these complaints to stop.”
On insinuations that the crisis has an ethno-religious undertone, Gov. Nyako dismissed such thoughts and instead said it was a clash between positive and negative forces.
“The two actors- Tukur and I- are Muslims. This altercation neither has religious nor ethnic coloration.
“The crisis is between justice and injustice and by the grace Allah justice will prevail at the end of the day.”
The governor said following the disposition of the national chairman to continue unleashing injustice as he likes without let or hindrance, concerned party faithful have no other means than to factionalize to restore sanity and order.
