The suspension of Kogi PDP Governorship aspirant,Alhaji Abubakar Ibrahim Idris in the last September primaries for anti party activities by the PDP, is the end of the road for the party in Kogi state .
A statement issued by Bolade Jegede says it is unfortunate that the scenario playing out in states like Lagos state since the return to Democracy in Nigeria, is gradually settling in Kogi .
Bolade wondered how the PDP under a faceless Ward Exco in Icheke suspended the front runner for the last PDP Governorship primaries in Kogi,when places like Bayelsa,Timi Alaibe is still in court over the contentious primary held in the state.
He said rather than following the part of reconciliation to appease the aggrieved so as to move the party forward,some dissidents out of self centredness want to perpetrate the party perpetually in the opposition.
He expressed regrets that the people kogites most relied on for the socio-economic and political developement of the state, are now bedevilled with intra tribal crises capable of overheating the polity of the state .
It is only in Kogi state,party platform under PDP is now a cultist activities, where by people that are not part of the group,will not be allowed to participate in any of their activities both at the state and federal level .
He challenged those dragging former governor Ibrahim Idris into the lingering crises to have rethink, on how he govern the state for nine years and also handed over to another person like Capt Idris Wada without reservation.
He warned on the dangerous misinformation and trend being followed by the PDP at the state and federal level,saying as the main opposition party determine to wrestle power, Abubakar Ibrahim won the primaries in the last September.
“The self induced crises may take a long time to settle down,as any house divided against itself cannot stand to take a collective decision.”
The Forum chairman urged Alhaji Abubakar Ibrahim to discountenance the decision of the party and pursue his case to its logical conclusion,saying the position of the party is prejudicial ,unfounded,null and void ,as well as dead on arrival.
