Adamawa State Reformed Peoples Democratic Party, R / PDP, interim chairman, Alhaji Jauro Hammanjoda Girei, has charged the party’s leaders and supporters to unite as a formidable force to fight corruption and injustice.
Speaking at a press conference in Yola on Tuesday, Alhaji Jauro Girei stressed that what caused the ongoing failures in the party was unfair treatment of the aggrieved members’ right from the conduct of party congresses, wards to the state level.
Girei said, “there is no place in the global political scene where you work as a team for your party’s victory only for very few to take over to the detriment of co-travellers and expect peace and harmony to exist calling on stakeholders to do what is necessary to address unnecessary differences.”
He disclosed that the interim leadership of the party under his watch will soon form three main committees, namely: the Advisory Committee, the Reconciliation Committee and the Disciplinary Committee, with the sole objective of offering the best possible solutions for moving the party as one big family.
Girei explained that all party chairmen and secretaries of the twenty-one (21) local government areas in the state will begin registration of membership and issuance of party card in their new rPDP register by tomorrow (Friday).
The chairman added that the registration is optional as anyone with the other faction’s old registration and card in the state can still maintain it since it is the party but is divided only because of a clash of interests.
Hammanjoda commended Dr. Umar Ardo’s bold step in challenging the alleged unconstitutional formation of the state exco led by Barrister Shehu Tahir which the government recognizes in the state.
He added that just two days ago Senator Ishaku Abbo representing Adamawa Northern District in the Senate declared his hundred per cent support for the course of rPDP publically insisting they are on the right track.
According to him, “I want to use this forum to acknowledge the encouraging support we are receiving from all and sundry in the state and beyond in which the latest was from distinguished Senator Abbo who just two days back added his blessings on our movement.”
