Bauchi – The former Minister of Federal Capital Territory, Alhaji Bala Mohammed, has denied speculations that he decamped from People’s Democratic Party (PDP) after losing national chairmanship position.
Mohammed made the denial at a stakeholders meeting to mend fences and factions in the party in the state.
He said that politicians should not allow prolonged malice and animosity to interfere with the political will among members, which would hinder the success of the party.
“Just because I lost the national chairmanship, I will not leave PDP because this is not my kind of politics.
“I have never said that I was leaving the PDP because I lost the seat of the national chairman, this is not my kind of politics.
Whoever feels I have offended him, I will ask for forgiveness because this is politics, there is no room for institutionalised animosity,’’ he said.
Mohammed called on party members to ensure that all fences were mended in order to bring the party to its real upper status.
He said that internal democracy should be the watch word of members in order to avoid further rancor and division of the party which would do more harm than good to the party’s political arena.
Also, Sen. Abdul Ningi, said that justice and equity should be done to all members.
According to him, members should be self-disciplined in order to achieve a common set goal for the party.
“We all need to come back and make the party great again through collective efforts of ensuring that there is no more factions,’’ he said.
The party state Chairman, Alhaji Yaro Yaro, said the meeting was aimed putting to an end all factions, and also to preach to one another the gospel of unity in the political system.
The former PDP National Chairman, Adamu Mua’zu and former governor Isa Yuguda were absent (NAN)
