PostSubject: I would have been richer in PDP –Tambuwal   2015-03-17, 04:03

Speaker of the House of
Representatives, Mr. Aminu
Tambuwal, has said that himself
and other members of the House
who defected to the All
Progressives Congress from the
Peoples Democratic Party would
have been richer politicians today
had they remained in the PDP.
Tambuwal explained that
remaining in the PDP would have
been an easier choice as all the
lawmakers would have enjoyed the
financial benefits of being in the
same party as the Federal
Government.
The Speaker said the ex-members
of the PDP opted to leave the party
for the love of Nigeria and the need
to turn the country around for
good.
He claimed that the PDP had not
done much for the country since it
assumed control of leadership in
1999.
But, a member of the House, who is
serving on the PDP’s Presidential
Campaign Committee, Mr. Bitrus
Kaze, has disagreed with
Tambuwal.
A statement on Monday in Abuja by
his Special Adviser on Media, Mr.
Imam Imam, quoted Tambuwal as
making the submission at an APC
town hall meeting held in the Tsafe
Emirate, Zamfara State.
He reportedly said, “Many patriotic
Nigerians who felt the need to
change the course of our country
have protested the inept
administrative style visited on this
country.
“They made their voices known by
abandoning the PDP and teaming
up with progressive-minded
Nigerians.
“Remaining in the PDP would have
been the easy option for us. We
would have been richer and would
been enjoying the benefits of
being in the same political camp
with the Federal Government.
“But, we chose a different option
because we felt enough is enough.
We felt Nigeria deserves better
leadership that is why we are in the
APC.”
Tambuwal also advised the
electorate against voting for the
PDP on the grounds that it was not
dignifying to do so.
“So, a vote for PDP would be
undignified. We must re-discover
our self-worth as a people, we must
move the country forward,”
Tambuwal said.
Traditional rulers and other
interest groups at the Emirate as
well as the Zamfara State Governor,
Mr. Abdulaziz Yari, attended the APC
town hall meeting.
In his reaction to the speaker’s
comments, Kaze, who is from
Plateau State, said it was
“unfortunate” that Tambuwal, who
was until six months ago a member
of the PDP, could paint the party in
such bad light.
He argued that so long as Nigeria
was not yet practising politics of
ideology, a change of political party
merely served personal interest
and nothing more.
“I don’t believe that the speaker
would have spoken in such manner
about the PDP.
“But, if he did, he was in PDP until
just six months back. He also knows
that over half of the people in the
APC are from PDP.
“We should not be embarking on
campaign of calumny, which only
aims at attacking other political
parties and personalities”, Kaze
added.
The PDP had controlled the House
with an overwhelming majority of
208 out of 360 members until
December 2013.
The party started losing ground
after 37 lawmakers defected to the
APC in December 2013.
Since the incident, more members
continued to leave the PDP for the
APC and other parties.
On October 28, 2014, Tambuwal too
left the party and subsequently
became the APC’s governorship
candidate in Sokoto State.
