- Fintiri urges Abbo and any PDP member with grievances over the primaries to express their grievances through the right channel.
- Abbo alleges that Fintiri will kill PDP in Adamawa.
Adamawa Governor, Ahmadu Fintiri has advised the lawmaker representing Adamawa North Senatorial District, Elisha Abbo to explore internal party mechanisms to pursue his allegation of manipulation of the recently concluded Peoples Democratic Party primaries for the November Local Government chairmanship election in the state.
In a statement on Saturday signed by his Director-General, Media and Communications, Solomon Kumangar, the governor urged Abbo and any PDP member with grievances over the primaries to express their grievances through the right channel. He added that that should be done so as not to create friction in the party.
“His Excellency views the senator’s action as unfortunate and takes exception to the insults, innuendos, and attack on his person and office.
“However, for now, the governor does not intend to join issues with the senator. Rather, his excellency is in the delicate phase of laying strong bricks for the security, growth, development, and prosperity of the people and institutions of Adamawa state and would not want to be distracted.
“His excellency hereby calls on distinguish Senator Abbo and indeed all loyal PDP members to explore available intra-party channels to express their grievances in a civilized and democratic manner to engender cohesion and solidarity.”
Abbo had in a video that went viral, accused the governor of disqualifying all candidates associated with him from participating in the primaries.
He added that Finitri will kill the party in the state,.
