…..Calls for President Tinubu, Minister Wike to Stay Out of State Politics

From Abel Leonard, Lafia

The Opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Nasarawa State has issued a press statement urging Governor Abdullahi Sule to prioritize the development of the state over politics.

The party emphasized the need for Governor Sule to leave President Ahmed Bola Tinubu and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Minister, Nyesom Wike, out of the state’s political affairs and focus on addressing pressing issues.

Sun gathered that Nasarawa State Governor, Engineer Abdullahi Sule, when he paid a working visit on the FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike in his office on Friday had solicited for further collaboration with the FCT administration for a metroline from Apo to Keffi, as well as partnering to build the 13,000 hectares Gurku/Kabusu mega city that is only 5km away from Maitama 2.

In a statement released on Friday and signed by the state Chairman of the PDP, Hon. Francis Orogu, the party expressed concern about Governor Sule’s four years and three months in office, during which no significant projects were commissioned in the state, and no clear agenda for his administration was set.

The PDP raised questions about the governor’s collaboration with Minister Nyesom Wike, who had been appointed FCT Minister, to discuss infrastructure and security matters between Nasarawa and the FCT. They pointed out the security challenges in Nasarawa State, including the presence of terrorist groups and criminal activities.

The statement also highlighted incidents of violence and insecurity in the state, including the killing of Mr. Philip Tatari, a sitting APC state chairman, and the murder of Alh. Zakari Umaru, a former federal commissioner, both of whom had close ties to Governor Sule. The PDP argued that it is the governor’s lack of performance and insecurity that led to his rejection in the last election.

The PDP called on the Federal Government to assess the competence of the state government in handling the state’s affairs and provide additional support, considering the security challenges in the region.

Orogu, the state Chairman of the PDP, stressed that it was time for Governor Sule to concentrate on governance and development, rather than involving President Tinubu and Minister Wike in state politics.

The PDP appealed to well-meaning citizens of the state, as well as President Ahmed Bola Tinubu and Minister Nyesom Wike, known for their commitment to fairness and justice, to ensure the tribunal’s impartiality and fairness in Nasarawa State.
