Adamawa: Don’t Use My Senatorial Ticket To Compensate Ngilari, Gulak Cries OutLatest News, News, Nigeria 2015 Election Monday, January 12th, 2015
Agabus Pwanagba, Jos – The crisis rocking the Adamawa State chapter of the People’s Democratic Party has escalated as the former Presidential Adviser on Political Matters Mr. Ahmed Gulak has called on the National Secretariat of the party not to use with the Senatorial ticket he won to compensate Governor Bala Nggilari.
Gulak said, “only seven of us contested the primaries in Abuja Mr. NNggilari did not contest. He did not even buy the form for Adamawa North Senatorial zone.
“The sitting governor did not contest with us and he cannot be the flag bearer of the Adamawa North senatorial district.
Gulak who spoke journalists in Yola on Monday, noted that “Governor Nggilari contested the governorship primaries and not the primaries for Adamawa Northern Senatorial District.
“In fact he was screened in Bauchi and was declared to contest for the PDP governorship ticket.
“I contested the primaries with six others, they are Col. Mana (rtd), Kari Abubakar, Mr. Cliff, Muhammad Murtala among others.
Gulak added that he did not step down for anybody,”I won the primaries with 84 votes , I was declared winner and my name duly submitted to INEC.
“I am aware of the substitution of my name with that of the governor by the National Secretariat, this is wrong unconstitutional and l’m contesting this action in court.
He noted that Governor Nggilari is the governor today because of a court ruling and he will pursue the case to a logical conclusion.
It would be recalled that Governor Nggilari lost the governorship ticket to Mallam Nuhu Ribadu in a primary that has been greeted with controversy and bickering.
