The Nasarawa State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has advised Governor Abdullahi Sule to refrain from involving President Bola Tinubu and FCT Minister Nyesom Wike in the state’s politics. PDP State Chairman, Chief Francis Orogu, expressed concern over the governor’s lack of impactful projects and agenda setting.
Orogu also questioned the governor’s collaboration with Wike on infrastructural development and security between Nasarawa and the FCT. He urged Wike to investigate why terrorists harassing FCT residents are based in Nasarawa.
The PDP statement emphasized that Governor Sule should focus on governance rather than dragging national figures into state politics. It called on Tinubu and Wike to allow the state’s ongoing Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal to deliver justice.
The PDP’s warning to Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State not to involve national figures in local politics is a significant development. It raises questions about the role of federal politicians in state-level politics and governance.
Governor Sule’s lack of impactful projects and clear agenda is a cause for concern. It suggests that the governor is more focused on political manoeuvring than governance.
The involvement of national figures like Tinubu and Wike could potentially overshadow the real issues facing Nasarawa State. The governor must focus on the immediate needs of his constituents rather than seeking national political alliances.
