Ex-Governor of Gombe State, Senator Mohammed Danjuma Goje, may be sanctioned by the PDP’s may disciplinary committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for driving into Gombe metropolis in a way that depicts a political campaign last Monday.
Speaking in a press briefing yesterday, the Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the party, Abdullahi Jalo, said the former governor’s action, is an action against the party’s constitution especially on the ban of political campaigns which has not been lifted.
According Abdullahi Jalo; “In fact he should have been arrested right there by the police, because it is not yet time for political campaign and his actions constituted nuisance to the public.”
The Party chieftain also accused the Senator of using thugs and miscreants to disturb the peace of the state as youths were seen flaunting cutlasses and dangerous weapons at the said rally.
He added that; “It is unconstitutional for a legislator, a member of the Senate, the highest lawmaking body in the Federal Republic of Nigeria, to engage in such act. Imagine him using rented crowd to cause disturbance in town when he should be sober over the case of fraud hanging over him. Where was the rented crowd when the people of Gombe carried placards demanding that he should return their money that he stole?”
According to Jalo; “Goje representation in the Senate is to ensure good governance and that the people of the state benefitted the dividends of democracy and not to destabilise the peace that the citizens of the state are enjoying.”
While urging the citizens of Gombe state not allow any individual or group of persons to mislead them, saying Gombe is a PDP state under the leadership of Governor Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo.
