Aides to Wase called on Plateau CP to interrogate PDP Chairman over false allegations on the Deputy Speaker


Our attention has been drawn to a press conference addressed by the state publicity secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in Plateau state, John T Akans in which he alleged that the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Amed Idris Wase (CON), is “recruiting and importing vigilantes” from neighbouring states into Wase to harass and intimidate voters before and during the elections.




We wish to state without equivocation that this is absolute falsehood and there is no iota of truth in this allegations as they only exist within the absurd imagination of the chairman, his party and followers.


A statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary to the deputy speaker Umar Muhammad Puma stated that, the Deputy Speaker is not known for any acts of violence and has won elections four times to represent the constituency and has no cause whatsoever to ‘import’ vigilantes to come and harass his people who have absolute confidence and trust in him.



We challenge the PDP in the state and their co-travellers to disclose the identity of the vigilantes.


We also urge the Commissioner of Police to interrogate the PDP chairman and his group to disclose the identity of those being recruited, where they were recruited and who and how they were recruited.


The PDP is afraid of losing elections and is therefore looking for excuses to hang its failures. The Deputy Speaker being a man of peace and a true democrat will not and cannot visit violence or mayhem on his people.



We advise our constituents to go about their nomal businesses without any hindrance and come out en masse on Saturday to cast their votes for their preferred candidates and party (the APC) and ignore the dubious antics and statement from the Publicity Secretary of the drowning PDP.
