0 335

A Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, stalwart, Dr. Umar Ardo has asked Hon. AbdulRazak Namdas a House of Representatives Member, to stop talking about a governorship contest, but he should first give a good account of himself and his stewardship as bases for trust and confidence.

In a statement signed and issued by Ardo, he said; “I just read on the news that Hon. AbdulRazak Namdas claiming to indicate interest to contest for the office of Governor of Adamawa state. While he is constitutionally qualified to do so, it is my contention, with all due respect to his person, that he is morally, and therefore politically, unfit to say so yet.”

According to Ardo, he said Hon. AbdulRazak Namdas , as chairman of the Army Committee in the House, should first explain to us why the army has failed to contain and subdue BH insurgency and banditry, and what measures his committee took to sanction this failure. Protecting and securing the lives and property of our people by the army and the role of the legislature in this regard are the paramount concern and need of our people presently and not his intention to contest for governor.”

“The insurgents are on the prowl killing, maiming and destroying our people and our communities, the army is less than forthcoming and beyond the sparing condemnation and shedding of crocodile tears on such acts, what is the legislature doing? Only this morning I read a news report of the insurgents attacking a community in the state and abducting 3girls even while the blood of last week’s attacks and gruesome executions of 5 Adamawa indigenes of Garkida is yet to dry up,” Ardo said.
