ABUJA — NATIONAL Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, yesterday, asked governors elected on the party’s platform, who have plans to return in 2015 to start campaigns now, if they must win the election.
Tukur warned the PDP governors against falling prey to the antics of praise singers, adulators and those he termed grovellers, who would always be around them.
He spoke to newsmen, yesterday, shortly after a meeting with some former members of the National Assembly in his residence, noting that these grovellers had mastered the trick of causing government officials to derail.
He said: ”Such individuals have been responsible for making public servants to develop swollen heads and feel bigger than the party.”
President Goodluck Jonathan had, at the last National Executive Committee, NEC, urged political office holders not to engage in political activities, but Tukur noted that PDP governors remain the best with landmark achievements.
According to him, most of the PDP governors have, indeed, been implementing the party’s manifesto on education, infrastructure, agriculture, rural development, power generation, transportation, aviation and others.
