I’ll Not Follow ‘Dead’ PDP To The Grave – Nyako

Murtala NyakoGovernor Murtala Nyako of Admawa State yesterday declared that the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, is on the verge of death due to what he described as the ‘terrifying upper-cut’ dealt the party by its national leadership in Abuja.

Nyako, a staunch supporter of the Abubakar Kawu Baraje-led New PDP and member of the G-7 governors, who have constituted themselves to as opponents of the Bamanga Tukur-led PDP, made this known while fielding questions from journalists in Dutse, after a meeting with Governor Sule Lamido of Jigawa State.

His words, “The PDP is on the verge of death because the leaders in Abuja have given the party a terrifying upper-cut. If the party is dead nobody should expect me to follow a dead party into the grave”.

Nyako added, “People leave even their religions for another and PDP is not a religion, which means leaving it would not be regrettable”.

When asked on his next line of action should the threat of expulsion by the Tukur-led National Working Committee of the PDP is eventually carried out, the governor, who looks set to dump the ruling party for the opposition All Progressives Congress, APC, said the move may turn out to be in his best interest.

“The purported threat by Bamanga Tukur to expel me from the PDP is highly welcomed. You see, when I remember that when I was taken to elementary school, I cried and cried because I did not want to go, in fact, I did not take my lunch and dinner that day because I was not happy. At the end it turned out to be the best for me .So if they expel me from the PDP, it may turn out to be the best for me”, he said.

  1. Nigerians will be happy if such evil goes away from PDP to any party of their choice but mind you if you loose and try to ignite troubles sorry your own life and families will be held responsible. Running away or breaking out doesn’t make you a better people either because individual you have been examined by Nigeria no single tree makes a forest. Your plots against the President didn’t start today ok rather long time ago but as God may have it you exposed your self with NGF thinking you were grounded and also forgot to disguise your ambitions now we the Nation discovered it fast enough and learnt our lessons. Sooner than later every one would know how supreme the Law of the Nation is to you and the entire Citizens of Nigeria.

  2. Nyako is irrelevant in PDP anyway so, he should get the hell out of the party. He’s one of the bad leaders in PDP, he’s a fool. He said PDP is dead and does not want to enter the grave with it, who’s supposed to enter the grave if not him, Nyako. Veronica.
