SAN FRANCISCO, January 04, (THEWILL) – The Governor of Borno State, Kashim Shettima, on Tuesday declared that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, “is evil”, adding that the main opposition party should be proscribed.
Shettima stated this at Senator George Akume’s house when he led his counterparts from Bauchi and Kano states, Mohammed Abubakar and Abdullahi Ganduje on a solidarity visit to the newly elected Tor Tiv in Makurdi, Benue State.
Though Shettima did not elaborate on why the PDP should be proscribed, he attributed the woes being experienced in Nigeria to “PDP’s 16 years of bad governance”.
While addressing a cross section of Benue people at the Government House in Makurdi, he called for oneness among the people of northern Nigeria in order to foster peace.
Shettima further dispelled insinuation that the forum’s visit to Benue was targeted at political calculation ahead of 2019, adding that they owed nobody apology for coming to rejoice with the Tiv nation.
