Tukur must Go, Gov. Wamakko Insists
Wamakko told the Voice of America (VOA) Hausa Service in Sokoto insisted that Wamakko had to go because when he called for the chairman’s removal, it was in response to the yearnings of the party supporters in Sokoto and beyond.
“In the past, before Tukur’s election as PDP national chairman, if we had any problem or disagreement in the party, we convened a meeting where all issues and problems were ironed out. We used to disagree and exchange words with one another during such meetings, but at the end of the day, we resolved the problem.
“In fact, such problems were kept secret without the knowledge of the public. But today, it is no longer so, you hear everything about PDP and its problems on the pages of newspapers and nothing is kept secret which is very sad.
“So the president (Goodluck Jonathan) as the leader of our party should rise up to the occasion and do the right thing to save the PDP from being destroyed,” Wamakko said.
He said the lifting of his suspension has vindicated him, but said the same measure has to be extended to Rivers governor, Rotimi Amaechi, who was also suspended a month ago.
“Truth always triumphs over falsehood no matter what time it takes. I am not fighting anybody and I am not afraid to speak my mind because I believe truth will always prevail. We are talking about fairness and equity to all, so we are fighting injustice in the party.
“I am a Muslim, a northerner and a Nigerian. Thus, even if I am not the governor, these three things will always remain with me. I know that power is transient, so I am not scared of anything because I know that you can only be afraid of something if you are doing wrong,” he said.
