By Tom Garba,Yola
Chairman of Peter Obi campaign organization, Reverend Benjamin Obianyor has raised an alarm that the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Adamawa state have high jacked the party.
Reverend Benjamin who is coordinating the Peter Obi Movement for Presidency (POMP) in the state said the main party loyalists who are foot soldiers for Obi have been neglected and not regarded .
He worried that PDP have made vain promises that are not possible for them fulfill on the ground they will not work for Atiku Abubakar, the party’s presidential candidate and work for Peter Obi, the Labour Party Presidential aspirant.
“How is that possible? In a state like Adamawa and Atiku’s strong base with the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the strongest opposition party in the state and you will convince people that they will work for the success of LP against their own candidate.”Benjamin said
He said PDP are just lying to Labor Party in Abuja that they are working round the cloak for Adamawa people to vote for Obi.
Benjamin accused the Labor Party Chairman, Christopher Nicholas of being a sell out betraying the party mandate.
He said: “They have succeeded in brainwashing some party officials by believing them to bring Adamawa state in bulk for Obi at the expense of Atiku who is the bonafide son of the soil and aspiring to be the next President of the country.”
He Worried that the unfortunate situation bedeviling the party is as a result of poor leadership being exhibited by the chairman, Christopher Nicholas.
Reverend Benjamin revealed that the real members of the party are being sidelined and the party’s campaign structure high jacked by the PDP members to further tear the party away .
He accused the likes of Engr Chindar, Gen Sinebi, Prof. Anna Malgwi, Prof. Caleb as all staunch PDP men, planted and working for Fintiri against labour party with the tacit support of some people from the Party Headquarters.
He also revealed that there are many people who are parading themselves as PDP’s council of elders as the main decision makers, and advisers of the Adamawa Labour Party.
This according to him is causing serious rupture leading Labour Party to massive failure.
He said more so that the party’s apparatus is being controlled by PDP and the Party’s gubernatorial candidate, Alhaji Umar Mustapha Madawaki (Otumba) is caged out of the party’s system.
He wondered why the officials at the headquarters will just be deceived by the fallacy of working for Obi.
“These people are just interested in syphoning Obi’s money to service themselves not our party.
“The party have a gubernatorial candidate, the three senatorial zones have candidates, our House of representatives and state house of assembly are in tact why not entrust the campaign structure to these people?
“I see Obi’s failure in Adamawa if the PDP bunch of intruders are still the party’s decision makers.” Benjamin stated
