Taraba political logjam ridicules Nigeria’s democracy—Tsav

MAKURDI—Former Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Alhaji Abubakar Tsav, has described the ongoing political logjam in Taraba State as a sad development and a ridicule of the Nigeria’s democracy.

Tsav who spoke yesterday with Vanguard said the development was a clear indication that the ruling People’s Democratic Party, PDP, was on the part of disintegration because “it is a house divided against it.”

He said: “The ongoing drama in Taraba state is a sad development and a mockery of our democracy . It is visibly clear that Governor Danbaba Suntai is mentally sick from brain damage. Anyone with such medical condition can hardly perform duties requiring brain work; the functions of a governor requires brain and concentration. Suntai looks physically and mentally unstable to perform the duties requiring thinking and concentration.

”Instead of allowing him to properly recover from illness, a group led by his wife is anxious that he resumes his duty as governor. They do not care if he is fit or not, they even seem to be introducing religious bigotry into the drama.

”Unfortunately, the PDP is silent over the drama. The party has problems with arithmetic like in the case of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum election where 16 is said to be higher than 19 and also the Rivers State anti Amaechi legislators.

“The PDP seems to be asleep. Perhaps they will wake up to declare that 16 of the 24 Taraba State legislators are wrong, it is sad and a mockery of our democracy.”
