The Yobe State chapter of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) said yesterday that the destruction caused by what it called misrule in the state in the last 17 years was worse than the harm caused by the Boko Haram terrorist group.
Former Minister of Police Affairs, Adamu Maina Waziri, who led a delegation of PDP leaders on a courtesy visit on the party’s national chairman, Ali Modu Sheriff, in Abuja claimed said, “We have two insurgency in Yobe; we have the Boko Haram insurgency, which is criminal, but we have political insurgency of misrule of Gov. Ibrahim Geidam of APC.
“If Nigerians are blaming PDP for 16 years of misrule, we PDP of Yobe are blaming ANPP/APC for 16 years of misrule. If there is change, we will start the change from Yobe.”
He pointed out that the party was on a journey to redeem itself so that it can reclaim its lost glory.
“If we do the right thing just as we have started, I assure you that the seat we won 1999, we can still win it back,” he said.
Speaking earlier, Ali Modu Sheriff gave assurance that he would be in Yobe to make sure all aggrieved members of the party are appeased and they return to the party.
Also yesterday, the PDP condemned the outright rejection of the Women Empowerment Bill by the Senate.
