Bala Ngilari

The Adamawa State Governor, James Ngilari, has threatened to probe Local Government Chairmen in the state for alleged anti-party activities.

Mr. Ngilari made this known while reacting to an allegation by the state chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party,
​PDP, ​Joel Madaki, that some of the chairmen and their councillors were involved in anti-party activities by not campaigning for the party.

Mr. Madaki, who spoke before the governor at ​​​a party meeting​ held Monday at ​the ​Government House, had called for ​sanction​ against the chairmen for act of betrayal.

Mr. Ngilari​, ​three months ago sacked the Gombi Local Government Council​,​ following the defection of the chairman and most of his councillors to APC.

“We are not here to victimize anybody. As a just man I will first investigate you before taking action. So you better clear yourself,” Mr. Ngilari told the council chairmen at the meeting.

Mr. Ngilari said he would not tolerate betrayal from anybody, adding that anybody who would not help PDP should quit the party before it is too late.

Efforts to get the chairmen, who looked disturbed, to comment on the development after the meeting did not yield results. They said they would first meet before reacting collectively.

A reliable source however said the party was angry with the chairmen for their failure to release campaign money to the party.

“Many of the chairmen are finding it difficult to pay salaries and the party is putting pressure on them to fund the party’s campaign​,​”​ ​the source said.

    The PDP are a desperate bunch. They threaten their own. They cannot force anyone to campaign for GEJ. Ngilari should step down from his office.

    You can imagine how state fund meant for the people are being directed to actualize a personal dream of GEJ and nobody is talking about this. It seems Nigerians will go hungry for a certain bedfellow to stay put in Aso rock.

    Vintage PDP! Having something else in mind and voicing something else by mouth!

    Tinubu is doing the same thing. Each local government contributed N20,000,000 each for Ekiti and some other amount later. In the current gubernatorial campaign they contributed not less than 50m. For Presidential campaign they all contribute. Both APC and PDP the same.
