Jigawa Senator Denies Rumor Of Decamping To PDP
Umar Akilu Majeri
The senator representing Jigawa Central Senator Sabo Muhammed Nakudu has dismissed the rumor speculation that he has political issues with the Jigawa State Governor Badaru Abubakar, but Nakudu said there are just mere speculations, adding that people are out to smear his relationship with the governor.
Nakudu said why he does not attend a function in the state is because of his engagement at the National Assembly.
Nakudu said he has no plan to dump the APC to PDP, adding that he will remain in APC and that wherever Badaru goes, they will go together.
While fielding questions about whether power could shift to PDP by 2023, Nakudu said it cannot happen because they have promised to remain loyal to Badaru.
In his response, Governor Badaru who held a closed-door meeting with Sabo Muhd Nakudu also denied the rumor that he was having a problem with Nakudu explained it is just the handiwork of political detractors who always write blackmailing stories on social media to tarnish the image of the two politicians.
In a related development, some members of the ruling party All Progressives Congress (APC) in Jigawa state are anxious and are afraid of injustice and possible manipulation in the registration process planned by the party’s (APC) registration and revalidation in the state.
The APC members were aggrieved following the appointment of Alhaji Ibrahim Dawakiji as the chairman of the registration and revalidation committee in the state.
Speaking former APC state chairman, Alhaji Habibi Sani Sara said they were never contacted in all the process and preparation even though he is a stakeholder.
The ex-chairman added that “this is a party exercise nationwide. It is very important for any member indiscriminate of his position to contribute his part for the success of the project”.
“We are waiting for the time and see what is going to happen. We will not hesitate to protect any illegality and breaching Nigerian and APC constitution by the committee of registration and revalidation committee here whoever the chairman or member”, Sara emphasized.
Speaking the acting chairman of the party in the state, Alhaji Muhammad Umar Dikkuma said has called on all supporters of the party to come out en-masses to be registered during the registration and validation of the party membership.
In an interview with our reporter in Dutse, Alhaji Dikuma Umar re-affirmed that a registered member can vote or be voted for any position in the party.
He called on households loyal to the APC to allow their family gets registered for the party to wax stronger.
On the seven members committee appointed by the party, under the chairmanship of Alhaji Ibrahim Dawakiji to conduct the registration exercise in Jigawa State, the APC caretaker committee chairman, described the members as veteran politicians who would no doubt deliver the goods for the exercise to succeed in the state.
