Posted by

The Nasarawa State branch of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has charged the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) with encouraging religious strife in the state.

The claim was given by Aliyu Bello, the state APC chairman, during a press conference in Lafia on Wednesday.

Bello insisted that Nasarawa State belonged to all inhabitants, not just one political party.

Religion or tribe.

“Nasarawa State does not belong to the PDP or any other political party, but to all citizens who live and conduct business within the legal framework.”

“Therefore, whoever is democratically elected to lead the state at any given time and in any capacity must be granted the full authority and legitimacy they deserve,” stated the prime minister.

The APC chairman encouraged opposition party leaders to be aware and cautious of their statements in the interest of the state.

He stated that the enormous crowd that greeted Governor Abdulahi Sule’s return to the state from Abuja following his Appeal Court victory was proof that the mandate was indeed given to him by the people.

“You witnessed the enthusiastic crowd of jubilant people who lined the highways from Karu, Keffi, Kokona, Akwanga, Nasarawa-Eggon, and Lafia, the state capital, to give the governor a heroic welcome as he returned to the state from the Appeal Court in Abuja,” he told reporters.

Bello stated that the party was concerned that, despite the PDP and its governorship candidate, David Ombugadu, indicating that they would appeal the ruling to the Supreme Court, they were still making unguarded statements potential of disrupting the state’s tranquility.

He advised the people of the state to keep the peace and carry on with their daily lives as indigenous people, while also urging Governor Sule to succeed in making Nasarawa state a model of peace.
