Lafia, the Nasarawa state capital has been defaced with the posters of Governor Sule Lamido, the incumbent Governor of Jigawa state and his Rivers state counterpart, Rotimi Amaechi ahead of the long awaited visit of the National chairman of the party tomorrow Saturday.
The posters of Lamido, an anointed candidate of the former president, Olusegun Obasanjo and Ameachi, – the embattled chairman of the thirty six (36) Nigeria Governor’s forum – pelted public utilities principally the popular Jos-Akwanga road.
A chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party in the state who pleaded anonymity said the presence of campaign posters of Lamido/Ameaechi ahead of 2015 presidential election was the work of members of the concerned group of the PDP.
Insiders from the People’s Democratic Party’s fold said the reasons for the visit of the National Working Committee of the party were to wade into the lingering internal rumpus between the two factions of the party. The in-house crisis bedeviled the party aftermath of the defeat of the PDP in the State. The party experienced fragile peace and untimely decamping of supporters to the ruling party in the state, the CPC.
Grapevine from the state secretariat of the party revealed that the chief article of the conference was intended at restoring the fissure that gripped the survival of the party especially what stopped the party from winning Governorship election in 2011
The PDP is also going to welcome some movers and shakers including former commissioners, Special Advisers to Governor Umaru Tanko Al-Makura, others that are ready to join the PDP are also erstwhile lawmaker representing Lafia central, Honorable Adamu Sule Liman, ex-member Nasarawa state House of Assembly under the aegis of the All Nigerian People’s Party before he was ousted by the Congress for Progressive Change in 2011 elections.
Other things to be discuss also include on how to strategized the way forward ahead of the unscheduled Local Government poll by the political whose fotress is still shaking, other reason is that, The questions some members of PDP continue to ask is can the visit of the National Working Committee of the party resolved the fragmentation and alienation of other party followers ?only time will tell the future and way forward for the opposition party in the state.
