The just sacked Special Adviser to President Goodluck Jonathan on Political Affairs, Alhaji Ahmed Gulak has denied that his appointment was terminated due to his meddling in party politics in Akwa Ibom State which led to a face-off with the Governor of Akwa Ibom State, and Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governor’s Forum, Chief Godswill Akpabio.
According to him, he left the presidency to join the governorship race in Adamawa State.
“Indigenes of Adamawa State are fed up with the misgovernment of Admiral Murtala Nyako, whose accomplishments in office has been very negligible and controversial,” said Gulak.
He said the people of Adamawa have been urging him “to come and contest and the need to give his people the type of leadership that they deserve has come.
“My relationship with President Goodluck Jonathan is very cordial and PDP is functioning as a family. There is no faction among us and our focus is winning 50 percent of the governorship seats in 2015.”
A top source however told Vanguard that the President had lately become uncomfortable with the activities of his Political Adviser and had to send him packing.
According to the source, some governors of PDP had also been kicking against the activities of the former Political Adviser and had asked the President to call him to order for the sake of 2015 elections.
