The National Working Committee of the People’s Democratic Party, NWC, and its Board of Trustees, BOT, have been urged to dissolve with immediate effect the Adamawa State Working Committee of the party because of the growing crises that have bedevilled the party.
A stakeholder of the party in the state and former Adviser to the former Acting Governor of the State, Alhaji Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri, on Social Development, Mrs Mamu Saleh, who said this in an interactive session with newsmen, declared that the dissolution of the SWC, was the surest way out to put an end to the lingering crises in the Adamawa chapter of the party.
According to her, the source of the crises was that the secretariat funds of the party have been squandered unaccountably and vehicles of the party have disappeared that brought about the party’s misfortunes.
Adding she said; “This scenario forced some sizable and notable members of the party to split and formed parallel primaries in Abuja. The party has been mortgaged and its failure during the previous election equally scattered the members that are witnessing mass defection to the ruling APC”
Saleh, a grassroots politician and two terms supervisory Councillor for Health in Hong Local Government Area, said the absolute silence being demonstrated by the leadership of the People’s Democratic Party, ( PDP) in Adamawa State was a clear manifestation of how its trading mission with people’s interest failed during the recent general election.
“That brought about what political pundits called work over by President Muhammadu Buhari’s led government under the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Mamu, who described the victory of APC across the country as political Tsunami, a reflection of what Nigerians have been yearning for, made bold to say that in the case of Adamawa PDP was so glaring how the executives of the party priced interest and votes to the extent that the secretariat of the PDP was relocated to the Adamawa Government House during the immediate past Governor Bala Nggilari led government.
“The bid for how much will you bring in terms of monetary aspects had superseded the interest of the party since the then Umar Damagun restructuring committee sworn in the present leadership of the PDP in Adamawa State led by Chief Joel H. Madaki ” she said
“The party lost focus and because of the desperation of the EXCOs in compromising leadership for money at the detriment of its members.”
She argued that there was no rationale why a member of the executive committee who supposed to devise strategies for the mobilization of the party could equally take up appointment as a commissioner in government without any bye-election or relinquishing his post.
