Honourable Abdulaziz,SK Danladi, a member of the Nasarawa state House of Assembly, who recently dumped the Social Democratic Party (SDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC) has appealed to Nigerians to avoid abusing the president if they will not praise him.
Hon Abdulaziz who is an engineer is the Chairman House committee on works and transport. He represents Keffi East in the hallowed chambers of the Nasarawa state house of assembly.
According to him, considdering the sectoral transformation under the Buhari led administration, it will be unkind for any reasonable citizen of Nasarawa state and Nigerian to present the administration in bad light.
He made this statement on Tuesday, in his office during an exclusive interview with him, on his defection from the SDP which ticket gave him the opportunity to be elected into the state assembly.
” I think the right perspective or word to use is that I made a return to my party.I was not just a member of the APC before the 2018 primary, I was more or less a chieftain,but had to decamp to the SDP during the APC primary , due to the role played by some party stakeholders from my constituency,which didn’t go down well with me and instead of causing any crisis, I left for the SDP.
” It was the SDP ticket that I got here to the assembly with but the governor and the speaker of the house of assembly became my reason for my return to the party.
” Governor Sule ,gave maximum respect to not just the speaker,but to the entire members ,regardless of our political differences, coupled with the kind of leadership exhibited by the two leaders,except one to be unnecessarily partisan,which to the best of my interest being in politics is all about good governance and not personal interest,which ironically some persons bear in mind.
He continued” Tell me which sector, in Nigeria, be it infrastructure, health care ,education and power that is left untouched by this government? So it will only amount to selfishness for one to stay in array with the government of Engineer Abdullahi A Sule’ and Mr President” He said.
Speaking on the current state of the party, he said it is laughable for one to think that the APC will not produce a president in the next election after Baba Buhari, when people like David Umahi of Ebonyi state, a strong supporter of the PDP has left to join forces with the ruling APC.
” Definitely, there is bound to be internal friction but the APC has been the only party that managed her crisis well. I believe that APC has come to stay even beyond the number of years that the PDP had been in power.This is why my advice to wailers had been that they stop abusing the president if they have no reason to praise him” Abdulaziz added.
Ex- Nigerian Governor Conspicuously Declared PDP Dead, Announces 2023 As Burial Date
Ahead of 2023 elections in the country political class are now into alignment and realignment on how to either continue or wrestle power from ruling party.
Globaltimesnigeria.com gathered that former Adamawa state Governor, Bala James Ngilari, said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has no future in Nigeria because it is a dying party.
Ngilari said this at the state All Progressives Congress (APC) stakeholders meeting on Saturday in Yola.
The former governor who defected to APC in 2020, was the PDP’s Adamawa North Senatorial Candidate at the 2019 general election.
”One of the reasons why I dumped PDP for APC is that PDP is a dying party. In fact, PDP is dead and it will be buried in 2023.
”Secondly, I don’t see PDP as an alternative for the future of Nigeria, because the contradictions in the party will make its members go to the graveyard and we will help them bury themselves.
”And the reason why I identified myself with APC is because of its laudable objectives that will take us to the promised land and give hope to our future generations,” Ngilari said.
He said that any nationalist who wanted the country to move to the next level should join APC as it has no alternative at present.
He said that there was hope for Nigeria and its citizens under the APC led Federal Government, urging progressive politicians across the country to rally round the party.
” I wish those who chose to remain in PDP well, ” Ngilari said.
He said that the APC currently has 90 percent followership in Adamawa, assuring that the party would take over the state in 2023.
“Adamawa has abundant natural resources if properly harnessed, the resources would boost the economy of the state and the country at large,” he said.
He called on the people of the state to support APC for the future and development of the state.

Gov Sule’s Continuity Will Ensure Stability In Nasarawa – Says Sen. Adamu
Former governor of Nasarawa State, Senator Abdullahi Adamu (APC, Nasarawa West), has said that a second term in office for incumbent Governor of the state, Engineer Abdullahi Sule, will ensure continuity and stability in the state.
Senator Adamu stated this in a speech when he led stakeholders of the All Progressives Congress (APC), from the Western Senatorial zone, on a thank-you visit on Engineer Sule, at the Government House, on Wednesday.
The lawmaker, who led stakeholders of the ruling party from his senatorial zone, to thank the Governor for appointing one of their own, Dr. John Mamman, as the state Caretaker Chairman of the APC, pointed out that a second term for Engineer Sule would ensure the Governor continues with laudable development strides.
Highlighting on the qualities of the state APC Caretaker Committee Chairman, Senator Adamu hailed the decision of the Governor to appoint Dr. Mamman to lead the party in the state.
The lawmaker however pointed out that to whom much was given, much was expected, and as such, the Western Senatorial zone must ensure that Dr. Mamman succeeds as the Chairman of the APC.
Senator Adamu stressed therefore that the only way the zone can show support for this magnanimous gesture from the Governor, is for the zone must to ensure that every nook and cranny in the zone is delivered to the APC.
Like their previous visit to the Government House, the Nasarawa West APC stakeholders, restated their total support for the Governor, declaring further that Engineer Sule remains the only viable candidate for the zone come 2023.
Senator Adamu however called on the Governor that despite the total support from the Western zone, he should continue with his development efforts and not to go to sleep.
Responding, Engineer Abdullahi Sule, commended the leadership, unity and cohesiveness of the people of the Nasarawa West Senatorial zone, urging them to sustain the tempo, not only for hos political ambition, but for the development of the zone.
According to the Governor, his administration is always encouraged to do more not only for the zone but Nasarawa State as a whole, mostly because of the massive support from the zone, especially whenever the state government initiates something that will go to the zone.
Engineer Sule described the appointment of Dr. John Mamman as the state Caretaker Chairman of the APC as the choice of God, adding that the interim party chairman never showed any interest to occupy the office.
He described Dr. Mamman as a loyal party man, who is honest, competent and has the capacity to lead the party in the state.
Commenting on the support from the zone, Engineer Sule informed the stakeholders that, considering his experience from the organized private sector, It’s not in his character to fall asleep while working to achieve an objective.
The Governor hinted on the strategy he will use to vanquish any opposition ahead of the 2023 general election, saying that the best way to deal with the opposition is to take a position that will scare them out of the competition.
“You do that in politics by doing the best you can. If I am suppose to construct 10 roads, my plan is to construct 20.
“If there is expectations from the people for me to build 200 schools, my plan is to build 400 schools,” he stated.
Engineer Sule said this was the best way to approach the opposition is by performance, by doing things that will make it difficult for somebody to come forward as a challenger.
“This is our plan for APC. It’s not a plan within APC but for APC against others. If there is any political party that is coming to override us, our plan is to override them,” Engineer Sule said.
