Dr. Umar Ardo, former aide to the former Nigeria’s Vice President Atiku Abubakar has described the People Democratic Party (PDP) stakeholder’s meeting held on Wednesday at Government House Yola at the instance of Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri as a mere gathering of political cronies.
Ardo who is also the leader of the reformed People’s Democratic party (R-PDP) in Adamawa state stated this in a press statement made available to journalists in Yola, alleged that most of the critical shareholders who formed and nurture the party in the state were not in attendance.
According to him, “The meeting of today, therefore, is not that of PDP stakeholders. It is a meeting of Fintiri and his cohorts. They partake in the current looting spree of the state treasury. In due course, we will respond to this claim in the so-called governance of the state as contained in the speech he delivered.
According to him, “In Adamawa state, you cannot truly hold a meeting of PDP shareholders without people like former governor Boni Haruna, Amb. Dan Sulaiman, Sen. Grace Bent, myself, among others who joined and build the party since 1998 and who are still active members of the party in the state.”
