PDP Founding Father Lambasts Party Leadership Over Tinubu’s Involvement in Rivers Crisis

Sule Lamido, a prominent figure in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and former Governor of Jigawa State, has strongly criticized the PDP’s National Working Committee (NWC) for its perceived inaction in the Rivers State political crisis. In a scathing statement posted on his official Facebook page, Lamido questioned the existence and effectiveness of the PDP’s leadership, highlighting their absence in addressing the tumultuous situation within the Rivers State chapter.

Expressing deep concern, Lamido raised doubts about the PDP’s ability to defend its interests, as he condemned President Bola Tinubu’s intervention in the matter. Lamido questioned whether the PDP had become so dormant that Tinubu, a prominent figure in the rival APC, now played a pivotal role in PDP affairs.

He emphasized, “What President Tinubu did in the so-called peace meeting is not brokering peace in Rivers State, but using his office to enhance the fortunes of his political party.” Lamido went on to criticize the PDP’s lack of action against Tinubu’s involvement, urging the party’s National Executive to challenge the illegality through legal means.

Lamido concluded by advising Governor Fubara of Rivers State to reconsider the peace accord, suggesting that the document was signed under duress. He urged the PDP to follow the example set by Chief Edwin Clark in challenging the perceived illegality and unconstitutionality of the peace accord, calling for a more assertive stance against external interference in PDP affairs.
