RE – PUTTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT, THE WAY NOT TO BE A CHIZA.
We have read with dismay the infantile, hypocritical, after thought reaction of Umar Garba Chiza, the caretaker committee chairman of PDP Niger State. Chiza’s reaction to the well intended National Working Committee solicited intervention of Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom In the “Family Feud” that has bedeviled Niger, Nasarawa and Plateau states’ PDP.
Governor Ortom never on his own “jumped” into the matters as Chiza is wont to speculate, his leadership and wisdom was sought as the leader of the party in the North Central after the National Working Committee specifically went to Makurdi Government House, to plead with him to intercede
Chiza seems to be talking before he thinks, how could Chiza of all people, say Governor Samuel Ortom’s intervention lacks backing of the National Working Committee?
As though that is not enough, Chiza himself, sent out the Invitation for the meetings with a template clearly given to Governor Ortom by the National Working Committee. See sample invitation from Chiza:
“MEETING WiTH HIS EXCELLENCY THE EXECUTIVE GOVERNOR OF BENUE STATE SAMUEL ORTOM.
I write under the directive of the State Caretaker Chairman Alh Umar Garba Chiza to invite you to a Meeting with the above Captioned Schedule as follows:. 1.Date: Friday 21st August 2020. 2.Venue: Benue State Governor’s Logde Asokoro Abuja.
Please Strictly on Invitation. Thank you. Signed.
Hon Jibrin Ndagi.
For the State Caretaker Chairman PDP Niger State.”
It is laughable too, for Chiza to claim lopsidedness in the Iist of attendees, when the invitation was based on a template which consist of all Serving, Former elected and selected appointees who are still members of the party.
If all party candidates, party appointees, party Executives and party elders are what Chiza referred to as lopsided, he must be expecting APC members to balance the list.
Similarly, Chiza at the Governor Ortom’s Chaired meeting said, the stakeholders have no confidence in him, knowing that is the situation, why does Chiza and his team want to hang on if not for Malicious, Mischievous intent to abort a transparent congress.
We in Niger are Proud of the statesmanly role Played by Governor Ortom, Senator Phillip Aduda, The north Central Executives and especially the Zonal Vice Chairman Mr. Theophilous Daka Sham.
We call on the National Working Committee to immediately without any delay implement the decisions taken for the three states as the decisions were unanimously endorsed and accepted without any dissent.
Any action outside that, means there is a voice of Jacob and hand of Essau aimed at destroying the PDP in the north central states of Nigeria.
