2023: APC Stakeholders Move To Retire Hon Sarki Dahiru From Politics
Wise men say the evil men do leaves with them, but the scenario in Nasarawa State People’s Democratic Party chapter was a different ball game as a staunch member of the party, Dr.Joseph Haruna Kigbu dumped the party after working tirelessly to ensure the landslide victory of Hon. Francis Orogu in the controversial ward, Local Government and State Congresses.
It was learned that Haruna Kigbu AKA Daktan Talakawa used part of his resource to ensure that Orogu returned to power by hook or crook, his defection to the ruling All Progressives Congress has to send bad signaled to the party whose fortress is shacking.
Analysts are of the view that the cacophony in the opposition party, The PDP is a clear trajectory that Governor Abdullahi Sule would have a soft landing come 2023 governorship election, the reason being that no strong political party that would challenge the APC whether Engineer Abdullahi Sule performed in his first tenure or not.
The recent defection of Hon. Joseph Haruna Kigbu from the PDP to the ruling All Progressives Congress is a clear indication of a house divided, meaning things fall apart, the centre cannot hold as Kigbu was on the right-hand side of the embattled chairman of the party who is serving his second tenure.
A reliable source close to Kigbu unfolded that his defection was a game plan to retire Hon. Abubakar Sarki Dahiru, the current Member representing Lafia/Obi Federal constituency from politics in the zone whom people described as a dormant representative who has nothing to offer his constituents.
He however said the calculation is to support Kigbu been an Eggon man from Lafia Local Government so as to gain their sympathy been the majority tribe in Lafia, the state capital followed by Alago speaking people in Assakio.
