The Nasarawa State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party has cautioned Governor Abdullahi Sule against dragging President Bola Tinubu and the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, into the politics of the state.

In a statement made available to journalists in Lafia on Saturday, the state chairman of the PDP, Chief Francis Orogu, said the party was seriously concerned about the governor’s inability to settle down like his counterparts in other states, who had been making impacts for their people.

He said, “We have observed that after four years and three months in office, Governor Abdullahi Sule has yet to commission a single remarkable project in the state. We are sad that in all these years, the governor has not seen the need to set an agenda for his administration.

“It is disturbing that the All Progressives Congress Governor in Nasarawa State is only hiding in the guise of collaborating with the former Governor of Rivers State who has just been appointed as FCT Minister to discuss infrastructural development and security between Nasarawa and the FCT.

“We strongly advise Mr. Wike to enquire from Governor Sule why all the terrorists harassing residents of the FCT are based in Nasarawa. Wike should note that the crises in Benue State is mainly at the border of Nasarawa State”

It further added, “It is worthy to note that all the hills in Nasarawa State are currently occupied by terrorists and persons of Fulani or foreign origin. There is a substantial number of terror groups from all over West Africa camped in Nasarawa, and they are terrorising everywhere in the country.

“We believe that a conscious commitment to governance by Governor Sule will reduce or eliminate these security challenges as it is the nonperformance and insecurity that led to the rejection of the governor in the last election.

“We want to use this ample opportunity once again to draw the attention of the Nasarawa State Governor to the fact that the time for politics is over.

“So, he should not use the time meant to develop the state to drag President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike into the politics of the state as his intention is mainly to seek help for the ongoing Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal in the state.

“We, therefore, call on President Tinubu and the Minister who are known for their stance on fairness and justice to allow the tribunal to deliver justice in their assigned responsibility so that all residents of Nasarawa State will be happy and embrace the decision of the tribunal.”
