The All Progressives Congress (APC), Nasarawa State chapter, has charged the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to desist from inciting religious disharmony in the state.
Aliyu Bello, the state APC chairman, gave the charge during a press conference on Wednesday in Lafia.
Bello maintained that Nasarawa State belongs to all residents and not exclusively to any political party,
tribe or religion.
“Nasarawa State does not belong to the PDP or any other political party but to the entire citizenry who reside and conduct business within the framework of the law.
“Therefore, whoever is democratically elected to lead the state at any given time and in any capacity must be granted the full authority and legitimacy they deserve,” he said.
The APC chairman urged leaders of the opposition party to be mindful and cautious of their utterances in the interest in the state.
He said that the large crowd that turned out to welcome Governor Abdulahi Sule to the state from Abuja following his Appeal Court victory was an indication that the mandate was genuinely given to him by the people.
“You witnessed the enthusiastic crowd of jubilant people who lined the highways from Karu, Keffi, Kokona, Akwanga, Nasarawa-Eggon, and Lafia, the state capital, to give the governor a heroic welcome as he returned to the state from the Appeal Court in Abuja,” he said.
Bello said the party noted with concern that despite indications by the PDP and its governorship candidate, David Ombugadu, to appeal the judgment at the Supreme Court, they were still making unguarded statements capable of breaching the peace in the state.
He urged the people of the state to maintain peace and continue their regular activities as indigenous inhabitants, while also supporting Governor Sule to succeed in making Nasarawa state a model of peace.
