Mu’azu to Al-Makura: Learn from LG polls de­feat and join PDP

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Isi­aka Wak­ili

“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.
