A’ Ibom PDP warns Gu­lak against back­ing group

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Patrick Odey,Uyo

The Akwa Ibom State Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party (PDP) yes­ter­day rose from a mid­night State Ex­ec­u­tive Coun­cil (SEC) meet­ing with a warn­ing on the Good­luck Jonathan/Sambo Or­gan­i­sa­tion not to stir any cri­sis in the state.

The meet­ing which ended at about 2pm Wed­nes­day night at the state ban­quet hall of the govern­ment House and at­tended by Gover­nor God­swill Ak­pabio, party chair­man, Paul Ekpo as well as the sen­a­tors and House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives mem­bers from the zone, called on Pres­i­dent Jonathan to cau­tion his aides who it says are bent on caus­ing ‘dis­af­fec­tion in the var­i­ous states of the fed­er­a­tion’.

The state chair­man of the party, in a com­mu­niqué read to party sup­port­ers, ad­vised the po­lit­i­cal ad­viser the Pres­i­dent, Ahmed Gu­lak, to con­cen­trate on sort­ing out PDP prob­lem in his Adamawa State rather than both­er­ing about Akwa Ibom and other states in South/South which he says have no prob­lem with Pres­i­dent Jonathan’s cam­paign.

He called on the pres­i­dent’s spe­cial ad­viser to de­sist from fur­ther in­ter­fer­ence in the af­fairs of the party in the state say­ing the state does not need the as­sis­tance of an ‘’out­sider to cam­paign here for Mr Pres­i­dent.’’

The party also af­firmed its de­ci­sion to zone the gov­er­nor­ship po­si­tion of the party to Eket se­na­to­rial district.
