There are speculations that the state executive committee, led by Umaru Kugama, will be dissolved amid allegations by the Medan Teneke faction of the party that they were imposed on the party and that Kugama who hails from the same ward with the governor should not be allowed to retain his post.
But speaking to journalists in Yola shortly after returning from a foreign trip, Governor Nyako said there was nothing wrong with the Kugama-led executive committee, hence the national secretariat of the party will not dissolve it.
He said if there were such plans, he, as the leader of the party in the state, would have been in the best position to know and that he would probably have been the one to execute it.
His statement came as the state chairman of the party denied allegations that he accused the party elders in the state of causing its current crisis.
A newspaper report had claimed that Kugama had accused the party elders, such as Professor Jibril Aminu, former Minister, Bamanga Tukur and ex-labour leader, Pascal Bafyau, of plotting to dissolve the state executive committee and impose their own surrogates on the party.
But in a statement signed by the state’s secretary of the party, Phineas Elisha, Kugama dismissed the publication as “baseless, malicious and unprofessional”.
