Press Statement, PDP Chairman, Adamu Muazu, not a Pathological Liar
The attention of the office of the National Chairman of the Peoples
Democratic Party (PDP) *Ahmadu Adamu Muazu, **CON* has been drawn to a
press interview by the Secretary to the State Government of Borno State
Ambassador Baba Ahmed.
In an interview posted in one of the online portals, Sahara Reporters on
Thursday 29th May 2014 in which Ambassador Baba Ahmed denied the letter of
advice from the Federal Ministry of Education advising the Government of
Borno State and other states in the region because of security situation
not to conduct WAEC or NECO Examination outside of Maiduguri, the Borno
State Capital is a clear acceptance of the lopsided approach by the
Government in Borno State to fight insurgency in the area.
The National Chairman of the PDP ordinarily will not like to join issues
with any Nigerian especially not with Ambassador Baba Ahmed but as an elder
statesman and a stakeholder in this administration, we wish to state again
that for us to win the fight against terror in Nigeria, we must all close
ranks irrespective of party affiliations and heed to all popular advice
from any agency of government to curtail the activities of the Boko Haram
We wish to state again that other states in the region which adhered to
this advice from WAEC and the Federal Ministry of Education where able to
conduct WAEC/NECO in their States capital peacefully. We owe our people the
collective duty to protect and provide for them and we wish to once again
advice the Government and stakeholders in Borno State and indeed all
Nigerians to cooperate with government at all levels to stop this spate of
While we respect the office of the Secretary to the State Government and
the person of Ambassador Baba Ahmed, a highly respectable Nigerian who has
served the state and the country meritoriously, we wish again to advice
Baba Ahmed to put his tenses together when addressing a public figure and
the person and office of Ahmed Adamu Muazu, CON, a former Governor of
Bauchi State and, the Chairman of the largest Party in Black Africa.
Adamu Muazu is definitely not a Pathological liar as referred to by Baba
Ahmed, rather, he is a man highly revered by his people, a man of
integrity, a refined politician and a gentleman.
Finally, we wish to call on the members of the Boko-Haram Sect to embrace
the amnesty extended to them by the Federal Government, drop their arms and
join hands with all Nigerians and President Goodluck Jonathan, GCFR to
continue to build the #NigeriaOfOurDream as there is no alternative to
democracy. Our mandate is transformation and transformation is on course.
Nigeria is one, nothing can divide us.
