You can’t win without us, New PDP tells Jonathan

The New Peoples Democratic Party, has told President Goodluck Jonathan that he cannot win the 2015 presidential election without them.
The group said  the President must not be deceived that they have become inconsequential in the build up to the 2015 elections.
The governors in the New PDP are the Governor of Jigawa State, Alhaji Sule Lamido; Governor of Sokoto State, Alhaji Aliyu Wamakko; Governor of Kano State, Mr. Rabiu Kwankwanso; Niger State Governor,  Aliyu Babangida; Governor of Kwara State, Abdulfatah Ahmed and the Governor of Rivers State, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi.

This was contained in a statement signed by the National Publicity Secretary of the New PDP, Chief Chukwuemeka Eze, a copy of which was made available to our correspondent in Abuja.
Eze said, “Mr. President should not be deceived by some party leaders who are making him believe that he can do without us.
“Most of these leaders currently cannot under a properly organised free and fair elections win their wards.
“It is obvious that no presidential election in Nigeria can be won without states like Rivers, Kano, Sokoto, Adamawa, Kwara, Niger States, Jigawa and Kebbi states and these are states we are controlling.

“Check the past general elections and see that some of these media-created PDP leaders have no followers in their states at the moment let alone making any impact come 2015.”
The inclusion of Kebbi State among the states was not clear as the governor, Alhaji Seidu Dakingari had not openly identified with the New PDP.
Eze also denounced the insinuations in some quarters that former President Olusegun Obasanjo was behind the walkout staged by members of the faction at the Eagles Square, Abuja on the day of the party’s mini convention.

“We view this as creating the impression that we are not matured enough to determine our political future and most importantly it was an attempt to smear the international image of Obasanjo as a distinguished statesman and father of PDP and rubbish his current efforts to restore peace to a party which is being threatened by the undemocratic acts of some of its leaders,” the statement added.

Eze added that his group was aware of attempt to rubbish the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the party, Chief Tony Anenih, for saying that those in the group had genuine reasons for their action.
He assured Anenih that members of the faction would not sit and watch some jokers in Tukur’s faction rubbish him or make him look ordinary in the affairs of the party.

The Abuja Division of the Federal High Court, yesterday, heard how alleged kingpin of the Boko Haram sect, Mustapher Umar, bombed office of Thisday Newspaper in Kaduna State with 12 camp gas cylinders in a bid to appease Allah. Justice Ademola Adeniyi, who admitted a burnt Honda Car, with number-plate AL-306-MKA, allegedly used to perpetrate the terrorist act on April 26, 2012, further heard how the accused person cried bitterly when he was rescued from the burning car, saying they denied him the opportunity of inheriting 72 virgins in heaven.

In a bid to prove the complicity of the accused person, the Federal Government brought a senior police officer that is charged with the responsibility of keeping exhibits recovered from terror suspects to testify before the high court. The masked witness, PW-8, who told the court that the accused person had intended to carry out a suicide attack, produced the burnt Honda car, the discharged cylinders, half-charred 25 litter jerry-can that allegedly contained fuel, and persuaded Justice Adeniyi to move the court outside to inspect the terror items.
