Jonathan to for­mally re­ceive Sheka­rau to PDP on Tues­day

Daily Trust - - VIEWS -

Since the move­ment of Sheka­rau from APC to PDP about four months ago, there have been crit­i­cisms and com­ments from his ad­ver­saries and tra­duc­ers who felt Sheka­rau should not have joined the rul­ing PDP. Per­haps, un­known to these crit­ics, in pol­i­tics, there is no per­ma­nent en­emy or friend but per­ma­nent in­ter­est. They called Sheka­rau all sorts of names but the man re­mains stead­fast and con­sis­tent in his new party. Sheka­rau, known for his po­lit­i­cal sagac­ity and elo­quence has made se­ries of com­ments on sev­eral is­sues, not mind­ing whose ox is gored, and these have also at­tracted stiff re­sponses from the op­po­si­tion. Those who crit­i­cize Sheka­rau know his worth, which Sheka­rau has also dis­played. In the last four months, he has carved a niche for the party and his sup­port­ers. Kano in par­tic­u­lar has wit­nessed a mon­u­men­tal man­i­fes­ta­tion of PDP more than ever be­fore in the last four months in spite of the pop­u­lous red caps. Some of Sheka­rau’s ad­ver­saries claim that Sheka­rau uses re­li­gion to ma­nip­u­late people. But as a Mus­lim, the close­ness of Sheka­rau to Al­lah in all his de­lib­er­a­tions is nor­mal and ex­pected of ev­ery Mus­lim since Is­lam is a com­plete way of life. As Jonathan for­mally re­ceives Sheka­rau into PDP, we pray for the peace and progress of the state and Nigeria.

I am of the opin­ion that he be­lieves in his new party, the PDP, and should be al­lowed to ex­er­cise his faith in PDP. Sai Nigeria! Sai PDP! Peace op­
