Insurgency: Adamawa PDP Condemns Nyako

The Adamawa PDP Stakeholders, has condemned Governor Murtala Nyako for blaming President Goodluck Jonathan and the Military over the insurgency in the north east.

This is contained in a statement issued at the end of the group`s closed door meeting on Friday in Abuja.

The statement was signed by Air Commodore Dan Suleiman, Chairman of the group.

“To us, his allegations are baseless, null and void. Most especially that he could not attach verifiable evidences to buttress any of his claims in the letter he wrote to the 19 northern governors on the issues’,’ he said.

The group said that it was regrettable that instead of addressing issues that would enhance the lots of the state`s civil servants,  Nyako had persistently withheld their monthly salaries.

He also alleged that the Governor had deducted huge percentage of the May 2014 salaries of the state civil servants without any reason.

Suleiman said that as law abiding citizens, the group was in full support of the State Assembly`s resolve to checkmate the governor`s excess.
He meanwhile, called on President Goodluck Jonathan not to lose hope in steering the ship of country`s affairs.

He charged the President to continue to forge ahead, irrespective of the deluge of criticism by opposition, adding that majority of Nigerians were solidly behind him.
Suleiman applauded the resolve of the Nigerian Military to secure the freedom of over 200 Chibok school girls abducted by the Boko Haram sect.

He also commended the selected African leaders drawn from South Africa, Ethiopia, Ghana, Congo and Cote D’voire to fashion out a frame work to tackle the menace of terrorism in Nigeria`s north east zone.

“We are confident that this powerful body shall decisively deal with the challenges of terrorism not only in Nigeria, but the African continent as a whole.’’ Suleiman said.
He condemned in strong terms the recent bomb attack in Kabang, a suburb in Mubi Local Government Area of Adamawa on June 1.
