The Nasarawa State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party has issued a warning to Governor Abdullahi Sule, cautioning him against involving President Bola Tinubu and the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, in the state’s political affairs.
In a statement released in Lafia on Saturday, Chief Francis Orogu, the state chairman of the PDP, expressed deep concern about the governor’s failure to establish a productive administration, unlike his counterparts in other states who have been actively working for the welfare of their constituents.
Chief Orogu noted, “After four years and three months in office, Governor Abdullahi Sule has yet to inaugurate a single noteworthy project in the state. It is disheartening that, during this time, the governor has not articulated a clear agenda for his tenure.” He further criticized the governor for ostensibly collaborating with the former Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, who was recently appointed as the FCT Minister, to discuss infrastructure development and security issues between Nasarawa and the FCT.
“We strongly urge Mr. Wike to inquire from Governor Sule why the FCT is plagued by security challenges emanating from Nasarawa,” Chief Orogu remarked. “It should be noted that the crises in Benue State primarily occur along the Nasarawa border.”
The statement continued, “Currently, all the hills in Nasarawa State are occupied by terrorists and individuals of Fulani or foreign origin. Nasarawa is host to a significant number of terrorist groups from across West Africa, and they are causing havoc throughout the country.”
The PDP emphasized that Governor Sule’s commitment to governance could help alleviate or eradicate these security challenges, as it was his administration’s underperformance and insecurity that led to his rejection in the last election.
The party concluded by calling on Governor Sule to focus on governing the state rather than involving President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike, in the state’s politics. It alleged that the governor’s intentions were primarily related to seeking assistance for the ongoing Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal in the state. The PDP appealed to President Tinubu and the Minister to uphold fairness and justice and allow the tribunal to fulfil its mandate, ensuring the satisfaction of all Nasarawa State residents with its decision.
