The Alhaji Abubakar Kawu Baraje faction of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has announced the dismissal of its erstwhile National Treasurer, Alhaji Tanko Isiaku Gwamna, declaring him a Judas. A statement issued this morning by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, announced Engr. Abubakar Gambo Umar as Gwamna’s replacement, saying there is no room in the party for “undemocratic elements that have constituted themselves a nuisance to our rescue mission.”
The statement made available to News Express by e-mail said as follows: “We have read with dismay the purported resignation of our erstwhile National Treasurer, Alhaji Tanko Isiaku Gwamna, while the fact is that he was sacked by the party. This unprincipled politician was sacked after being discovered to be a mole and has since been replaced by a seasoned and principled politician, Engr. Abubakar Gambo Umar, who has been an active grassroots politician and mobiliser in his native Taraba State since 1999.
“Alhaji Gwamna’s fate became sealed when a report on his true status was tabled before the National Working Committee of PDP during its inaugural meeting held at the residence of the party’s National Chairman, Alhaji Abubakar Kawu Baraje, in Abuja on 15th Sept, 2013. The damning report on Alhaji Gwamna was submitted by the PDP National Secretary, His Excellency, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola. According to the report, it was found that Alhaji Gwamna was a mole planted by the Tukur faction of PDP to monitor our activities and report back to it with a view to sabotaging our activities.
“Prince Oyinlola’s report further indicted Alhaji Gwamna as one of those executing contracts for the Federal Government and under threat that to have all his contracts terminated by should he fail to spy on us as directed. Like the Judas that he is, Alhaji Gwamna agreed to mortgage his conscience in his mistaken belief that he could successfully sabotage our mission to bring sanity to our party being hijacked by hawks whose aim is to destroy a party that they do not know how it was formed.
“When Alhaji Gwamna got wind of his impending sack, this false democrat rushed to the Presidency to alert his paymasters that he had been discovered to be a mole and was at the verge of dismissal. To save his ugly face, the Presidency quickly drafted a press statement announcing his resignation and gave him to sign and immediately release to the press last night.
“To us, Alhaji Gwamma is rubbish meant for the dustbin and we sincerely thank all those who assisted us to discover on time this undemocratic personality only meant for a fading group like Tukur’s faction of the PDP.
“We are happy to announce the better qualified and more principled Engr. Abubakar Gambo Umar as his replacement with immediate effect. Unlike Alhaji Gwamma, Engr. Umar, who was twice nominated by his constituency to run for the House of Representatives, is a staunch believer in the rule of law, a democrat to the core and a man known for upholding justice and fair play.
“To Nigerians, we apologise for not properly investigating Alhaji Gwamma, a fellow who is ready to sell his conscience for a mess of porridge, before giving him such an exalted position of National Treasurer of a great party like PDP. As we bid him goodbye to his journey to political perdition and wilderness, we wish to urge all Nigerians to keep faith with us as we are very determined to flush out all the undemocratic elements that have constituted themselves a nuisance to our rescue mission.”
