A former governorship aspirant of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) in Adamawa State, Brigadier General Buba Marwa (rtd), has disclosed that the national leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has invited the state Governor, Murtala Nyako and some party’s stakeholders for a meeting in Abuja, to address some of the issues bedevilling the progress of the party in the state.
Marwa, while speaking yesterday at a press conference he convened in Yola, told journalists that the purpose of the press conference was to douse tension among the party's supporters, who have vowed to leave APC because of the defection of Nyako and his supporters into the party.
He said according to their supporters, Nyako’s coming to highjack the political structures of party might not be in their interest if they remain in APC, hence their resolve to move to another party that would accommodate their interest.
Marwa explained that Nyako’s defection into the party was done without consultations from the party’s stakeholders in the state, stressing that even though if the governor was sacrosanct to the party, the method of his defection to the party was wrong.
“However, we also want to make it clear that Nyako advisers did not advise him well as to the method of his entry into APC because when you enter a new place that was already occupied, it is expected of you to knock at the door first and introduce yourself to the occupants unfortunately Nyako and supporters undermine the occupants and went straight into the bedroom without permission by calling a meeting of the APC at the grassroots,” he said.
He claimed that Nyako and his supporters ought to have met with the party’s stakeholders in the state, adding that it was not too late for an amendment to be made.
Marwa said himself, a governorship aspirant on the platform of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), Mr. Markus Gundiri, and Nyako, who joined the party recently alongside some APC stakeholders in the state were invited by the national leadership of party headed by Chief Bisi Akande, to address some false insinuations that the party structures have been handed over to Nyako and his men.
“That is why the national leadership of the APC has called for a meeting between Nyako and us the stakeholders of the legacies parties that made up the APC because a lot of worries and fears from our members that the national leadership has given the soul the party to the governor, which is not true that is we ceasing the opportunity to inform them that insinuations are not true,” he said.
