Story from Usman IBRAHIM, Yola
The Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC) Adamawa chapter has called on security agencies in the state to take action against the Chairman Conference of Nigeria Political Party (CNPP), Jafaru Girei, for claiming to be chairman of different political parties in the state.
Mr Bello Babajo, the state chairman of IPAC made the call at a press briefing on Sunday in Yola.
He said that Jafaru is misleading the public by saying that there are 32 political parties in the state as against 18.
“The IPAC is calling on the security agencies to as a matter of urgency takes drastic steps to stop Comrade Jafaru Girei and his team from misleading the public which will lead to the breakdown of law and order as the peace and harmony in Adamawa State is not negotiable.
“To our greatest shock and surprise, on the 7th of April 2023, one Comrade Girei made a misleading statement that will bring chaos in Adamawa State which might lead to the destruction of lives and property.
“Such a statement should not come from him as the Secretary of PCRC, and therefore we call on Comrade Jafaru Girei to discontinue such misleading statement as a matter of urgency”, he said.
Babajo called on the attention of the general public to disregard such groups, as they are not recognised in Adamawa and in Nigeria.
“Again, the public should know that we have 18 political parties and not 32 as claimed by comrade Girei.
“We however stand on our earlier call for the replacement of the Resident Electoral Commissioner, REC, before the supplementary election”, he said.
Babajo further called on the people in the state to conduct themselves peacefully during the re-run governorship election which is scheduled for April 15th.
