Wukari crisis politically motivated - Sen Bwacha
The sectarian crisis rocking Wukari town in southern part of Taraba a State is politically motivated by some forces in the state ahead of the 2015 elections, Senator Emmanuel Bwacha representing the zone has said.
Speaking to Journalists in Abuja yesterday, Bwacha (PDP, Taraba) argued that the state has been haven of peace but lamented how some people hiding under the cover of religion and ethnicity to have been orchestrating violence for political reasons.
“To keen watchers of events in the state, the present crisis that is going on is more of a political crisis than the superficial meaning or interpretations being given. The basis like I earlier pointed out, is on the power shift which the governor had canvassed for the state and which had received a broad based support across the State,” he said.
He added, “The thinking by those perpetrating or fueling this crisis is to create the impression that the region is crisis-ridden and so does not deserve a fair share of the power equation vein sought for.”
The lawmaker maintained that, a ‘cabal’ is “responsible for fueling this crisis under the headship of an individual is known to us and we believe God will expose him very soon.”
Bwacha who chairs the Senate committee on agriculture said he is not desperate to become Governor in 2015 as only God gives power.
