Governor Murtala Nyako of Adamawa State yesterday declared that no decent politician that is passionate about the growth of Nigeria’s democracy can maintain membership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) .
Governor Nyako told newsmen at Yola International Airport, on returning from Abuja, that unless Nigerians rise to checkmate the excesses of the PDP, the country would be plunged into ethnic and religious war.
He said: “The PDP seems to have no clue about what it is supposed to be doing at all. It has reduced politics to personal quarrel, blackmails and cheating and no decent man can remain in the party as its antics may lead the country to civil war.
“It is established in history that whenever the reign of impunity prevails in a polity, anarchy will be the order of the day as it has been attested by even the president, who acceded that the current spate of insurgency rocking the country is a function of lawlessness and impunity.
“The crises in the state chapters of the PDP was a fallout of the unjust dissolution of the state executive by the national chairman of the party for selfish reasons and all efforts to get the issue regularised proved abortive as the national chairman in his quest to foist anarchy refused to heed to the clarion call of well meaning Nigerians to rescind his decision.
“Many well meaning individuals have called on the national chairman to rescind his action and reinstate the state executive, but he vehemently refused to do so. On our part, we have written letters and articles to get the injustice redressed to no avail as the national chairman was hell bent in achieving his odious aim.”
