The Governor of Nasarawa State, Abdulahi Sule, said he has no hand in the political misfortune of Senator Abdulahi Adamu and Umaru Tanko Al-Makura.
The duo are both former governors of the state.
The Governor disclosed this through his Senior Special Assistant (SSA) on Public Affairs, Comrade Peter Ahemba while denying the purported news publication in one of the national dailies in a press conference held on Tuesday in Lafia, the state capital.
Ahemba said “The attention of the Nasarawa State governor, Abdullahi Sule, has been drawn to a publication in one of the national dailies with the title “How Governor Sule Plotted the Exit of Al-Makura and Adamu in Nasarawa Politics.
He described the publication as not being a figment of the author’s imagination but mischievous and aimed at causing disaffection between the two former governors and the serving governor.
He said it was a known fact that the appointment of Ministers is solely the prerogative of Mr President to consider and appoint whoever he wants from each State as a member of the Federal Executive Council, and the Governor’s powers to determine who is appointed a Minister are limited.
On former Governor Abdullahi Adamu, the immediate past National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), said “the author of the media publication also tried fruitlessly” to tell his readers where and how Governor Sule has done anything to undermine the former APC national chairman,
“It is also pertinent to state that Governor Sule has no hand in the political squabbles that led to Adamu’s resignation as National Chairman of the ruling APC.
“It is rather mischievous for anyone to insinuate or accuse Governor Sule of being responsible for the internal disagreement among members of the National Working Committee of the party that led to the voluntary resignation of Senator Abdullahi Adamu.
“The unfortunate development has nothing absolutely to do with the Governor. It is on record that Governor Sule was the first APC Governor to openly declare support for Nasarawa State to have a national chairman of the ruling party and worked relentlessly for its realisation.
Again, when there were agitations in some quarters for the ousting of the National Chairman early this year, Governor Sule stood firm against the move without minding the implication on his re-election bid.
How then will the Governor turn the ground to destroy the house he contributed immensely to the building?” Ahemba said.
He explained that his principal has continued to accord tremendous respect to the founding fathers of the State, including the duo of Senators Al-Makura and Abdullahi Adamu for their role towards the progress and development of the State and will not look back in this regard
The SSA added that the governor has no reason whatsoever to work against the interests of any of them, as the author mischievously wants members of the public to believe.
He urged Senators Abdullahi Adamu and Umaru Tanko Al-Makura, whom he holds in high esteem, to be wary of mischief makers and disregard the said publication in its entirety as it has no iota of truth, saying that It was baseless and unfounded.
