SELYA YARNAP, Bauchi
The Peoples Democratic Party [PDP] in Bauchi State chapter has hailed the confirmation of Senator Ahmed Makarfi by the Supreme Court as the authentic national chairman of the party.
Speaking with pressmen in Bauchi, the state Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the party, Alhaji Yayanuwa Zainabari, said the chapter was fully in support of the former Kaduna State Governor because party members from the state participated in the convention held in Port Harcourt last year which produced him as chairman.
Zainabari appealed to the factional chairman, Alhaji Modu Sheriff, his supporters and all PDP stalwarts across the country to accept the judgment in good faith and work vigorously towards the party’s success in future.
He also called on members who defected from the party as a result of internal crisis to come back noting that the burning issues would now be resolved.
The Party’s PRO alleged that since the inception of the All Progressives Congress [APC] government in 2015 at the federal and some states, they have been witch-hunting opposition members through detentions and arrests ‘with a view to silencing them from constructive criticisms which is essential in democracy’.
He said the present APC administrations nationwide have performed below expectations since their taking over two years ago, alleging that the ruling party resorted to victimization of the members of the opposition in order to stop them from demanding for good governance and pressure them to deliver their campaign promises.
”Let us tell them that PDP will never be intimidated. Arrests, detentions and all forms of persecution cannot deter us from speaking the truth and demanding for good governance. PDP remains the most principled and formidable party in Nigeria that is determined to enlighten the electorates continuously on the happenings in the country. And we are very optimistic that come 2019, we will bounce back because APC government has failed woefully”.
Alhaji Zainabari then called on President Muhammadu Buhari and the Federal Government to do something in order to end the ‘perpetual victimization of its bigwigs so that the relative peace being enjoyed in the nation would succeed’.
