Wike ‘very busy’, failed to meet BoT over PDP crisis: Wabara

Adolphus Wabara, the BoT chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, says the trustees’ efforts to meet Governor Nyesom Wike to resolve the lingering crisis in the party have failed because the governor has been “very busy.”

He said the BoT members had met with some PDP governors but had yet to meet Mr Wike.

“We have also met with some of the governors. We started from my state, Okezie Ikpeazu. We moved to Enugu to meet Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi. From there, we met Seyi Makinde of Oyo, and we met with Jerry Gana. We are really digging around to find solutions,” Mr Wabara explained. “We are looking for solutions for all of us to come together and win the election in flying colours.”

In response to the decision of Mr Wike and his camp to pull out of the Atiku Abubakar presidential campaign council, Mr Wabara said the party would speak with the Rivers governor after addressing the nation on Friday.

“After Wike’s address, tomorrow we will speak with him. Wike is a member of the board of trustees. We have made attempts to meet with him, but I believe he has been very busy,” he disclosed.

He said that the BoT was going around to find a lasting solution to the problem dividing the party. Mr Wabara added that the BoT members would meet the party’s national chairman, Iyorcha Ayu, Mr Abubakar and his running mate, Ifeanyi Okowa, on the way forward.

“Our aim is to get into the Aso Villa. For PDP to get into the Aso Villa in 2023, we need everybody to come on board. We are still moving around. In six days’ time, the campaign will be inaugurated. We hope and pray that before then, Nigerians will see a more united PDP,” Mr Wabara noted.

He added, “We are doing this not for us, not for the chairman of the governors’ forum or anybody. We are doing this for Nigerians. Nigerians are looking up to the PDP to deliver them from what we are experiencing with the ruling party as we speak.”

Similarly, Governor Aminu Tambuwal said discussions were ongoing to resolve the PDP crisis.

“We have engaged with them, and I believe that what they are likely to come up with will be a solution to the problem we have. Be rest assured that as governors of the party, we are also talking to ourselves on the way forward,” Mr Tambuwal explained. “Very soon, the governors’ forum will meet, and we will come up with what we feel should be the solution and the way forward for the party.”

Nigeria would have been better if leaders followed Lar’s example: Jonathan

Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan says Nigeria would have been a better place to live if the country’s leaders had followed the example of the late Solomon Lar and other like-minded politicians.

“If we had continued in the same political trajectory promoted by the likes of Chief Lar in the second and third republics, our country would have been better off in terms of our unity, peace and pace of development,” said Mr Jonathan, at the public presentation of a book ‘Chronicles of the Rainbow’, and the inauguration of the Solomon and Mary Lar Leadership Institute, in Abuja on Thursday. “Chief Lar offered love in place of bitter and divisive politicking, built bridges to cement the cracks in our unity and showed courage in the face of injustice and military dictatorship.”

The ex-president urged politicians to imitate the political attributes of inclusion, sacrifice and selflessness, which he said the Plateau’s first civilian governor exhibited.

“As we head towards the 2023 general elections, I will urge that we all, as critical stakeholders, whether as candidates or voters, embrace the principles of the late Chief Solomon Lar’s politics of inclusion, bridge-building, unity and accommodation,” Mr Jonathan added.

He recalled that Mr Lar was the only governor from the North in the Second Republic who contested and won an election on the platform of the Nigerian Peoples Party (NPP), a party that had the South as its stronghold.

The former president stressed that Mr Lar’s stance and subsequent victory alone epitomised his character and disposition as a bridge builder and advocate of national unity.

“Sadly, we are now playing the kind of politics that Chief Lar detested. Issues around ethnicity, religious bigotry, hate speech and personal attacks, rather than principles and policies affecting the lives of Nigerians, have continued to dominate political discourses around the country as political parties begin their campaigns,” Mr Jonathan admitted.

He, however, urged “politicians who are seeking to occupy different elective offices across the nation, as well as leaders and promoters of the various political parties to learn from the likes of Chief Solomon Lar, who played politics of sacrifice and selflessness, in the interest of the people.”

PDP will loot treasury dry if given access to power again

Calls for secession: Lai Mohammed identifies key reasons responsible

Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information and Culture has stayed that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will loot the country’s treasury dry if they are given another opportunity to be in power.

This was stated by Mohammed while speaking in Tanzania, in reaction to the controversy surrounding the return of N122.4 million by members of the PDP’s national working committee (NWC).

“If a man can steal from himself, he will steal without any restrain from other people. The problem is that PDP will never change and like they say, a leopard will never change its spots. When PDP lost elections in 2015, they admitted that they had learnt their lessons, but obviously, they have learnt nothing.

God forbid, if they ever have access to public purse again, they will leave no kobo there. We know what we met when we assumed office in 2015, we are still wailing from it. We hope Nigerians have now seen from this scandal the intention of PDP if they ever have access to public treasury.”

  Atiku names Dino Melaye, Daniel Bwala as campaign spokespersons

Mohammed said the party should be questioned on the source of the funds shared, adding that as a member of the NWC of the APC, no money was ever paid into his account.

“Never did I remember that any form of money, call it, accommodation, or whatsoever, was ever paid into the account of any member of the NWC of either ACN or APC” he said.
