…says Inuwa’s actions are threat to democracy
The Gombe chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has vowed that no matter the intimidation, blackmail and threats carried out the ‘buldozer’ Governor of Gombe State, Mohammed Inuwa, the APC will be floored in the 2023 guber race.
TheNewsGuru.com, (TNG) reports this was contained in a press release issued by the the PDP ‘s state Secretary, Adamu Abubakar stating that:
“The intolerance of the Government of Gombe State has continued to bear dangerous trend and threatening the 2023 general elections in the once peaceful state.
“For the second time in this year alone, the Government of Gombe State has sent its agents of destruction being paid with Gombe State tax payer’s money to unleash terror on the Peoples
Democratic Party (PDP) by destroying the campaign office of the party’s governorship candidate Alhaji Jibrin Barde who command more than 90 percent followership in our dear State.
“The State woke up to the gory sight of assault on the sensibility of the people by pulling down Alhaji Jibrin Barde’s Campaign Office in total disregard for an injunction granted by Gombe
State High Court on July 22, 2022.
“The State Governor has exhibited similar undemocratic intolerant behavior when on March 23, 2022 he sent his agents to demolish Alhaji Danbarde’s campaign office even before he
convincingly won a hotly contested PDP primaries.
“It should have been instructive to Gombe State Government that if the first destruction could not stop Alhaji Jibrin Barde from emerging as the PDP candidate, how could one think they can stop the people’s will.
“For a sitting governor to disobey a recognized Court order is a brazen display contempt of law,
an act which is not only condemnable but reprehensible.
“The Gombe State PDP is shocked that despite our consolidation of democracy journey, a Governor in this 21st century can still behave this way.
“This is unbelievable and unacceptable.
Inshaa Allah, winning next year’s governorship election by Alhaji Jibrin Barde of the PDP is a forgone conclusion no matter the act of brigandage, provocation, intimidation and blackmail
being displayed by Governor Inuwa.
“Governor Inuwa surely knows that Gombe State indigenes are not only tired of him and his administration, they are equally resolute in their determination to implement the APC mantra
“Change” against him.
“The PDP and its teaming followers would not be intimidated because the movement is not just that of Alhaji Muhammad Jibrin Barde alone, but the entire people of the State.
“The PDP in the State is glad to have a peace loving governorship candidate in the person of Alhaji Jibrin Barde who, despite not being at home in the face of provocation, has pacified his teaming
followers not to take law into their hands, but be their usual peace loving self.
“The Party is far above the current machination by the State government to derail the peace we currently enjoy in the State as such we would not join issues with governor Inuwa by taking
revenge. We are matured, sensible, and morally upright.
“We wish to seize this opportunity to express our profound gratitude to the good people of Gombe State for the unflinching support they have graciously extended to us. We are indeed inspired by this invaluable solidarity and we wish to assure them that we shall not disappoint them in
whatever way at all.
Thank you all.
