Mu’azu to Al-Makura: Learn from LG polls defeat and join PDP
“If this case had been issued a day later than Monday, we would have said the Judge was caught in the web of ‘April Fool’! Alas, he indeed made the ruling on Monday, hence the need for us to take it very seriously for several reasons” - APC on the court ruling on the 37 defected lawmakers
National chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu, has asked Nasarawa State governor, Umar Tanko Al-Makura, to learn from the humiliation of the defeat his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) suffered in the last local government elections in his state and join the PDP.
PDP won many of the local government which results have so far been declared in the last LG elections in Nasarawa State.
Mu’azu who made the call at the Presidential Villa in Abuja when a PDP delegation from the North-Central geo-political zone paid a solidarity visit to President Goodluck Jonathan, also called on all the party’s defectors to return, saying there is no shame in doing so.
The delegation, led by Senator Ahmadu Ali, comprised Senate President David Mark, all the PDP governors and federal legislators from the zone, some deputy governors, former Deputy Senate President Ibrahim Mantu, former Kogi State Governor Ibrahim Idris, Professor Jerry Gana, among others.
Mu’azu said as the national chairman of the PDP, he wanted all those who had defected to return, saying the party “has the pot to feed everybody”.
Earlier, Senate President David Mark said the North-Central was for the PDP and vice versa, assuring Jonathan that the zone would always support him.
Mark also asked Jonathan to deal with the serious security challenge confronting the zone, saying if those behind the killings succeed in destabilising the North-Central zone, it would become easy for them to destabilise other zones in the country.
