Political Events in Adamawa State are taking a fast and swift turn as a Chieftain and staunch supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari, a Former Governor of Adamawa State Murtala Nyako took a swipe at the President in what has baffled many that know the close relationship between the duo.
Apart from openly condemning the incessant killings in the country, Nyako is accusing APC of keeping mum despite the crises that preceded the parallel congresses that took place in the state.
He charged the Adams Oshiomhole led NWC to quickly save the party as according to him the Congresses took place in only one ward throughout the state
This has given rise to the issue of a plan that Nyako is making moves towards defecting to the Former President Obasanjo’s newly formed political party the African Democratic Congress ADC
At the same time a Presidential aspirant in the PDP and a former vice President Atiku Abubakar is seen to be frolicking with the aggrieved Nyako led APC camp to which Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, former SGF Babachir Lawal, Buba Marwa and a host of others belong to.
The widely reported condolence visit by Atiku to Nyako family following the death of Nyakos wife is believed into have political undertone.
It should be noted that Nyako and Atiku before now were sworn political enemies.
An interesting aspect in all the political moves in the Adamawa APC is that the party has failed to solve its internal crisis and an aggrieved faction has resorted to go on a legal battle which many observers believe will further deeper the rift between the two contending factions.
As event unfold, major political gladiators in Adamawa State such as Former SGF Babachir lawal, Nuhu Ribadu, Nyako, Buba Marwa, and several others are in a muscle flexing with the sitting Governor Umaru Jibrilla Bindow who clinched the position of governor using the APC structure designed and maintain by Nyako over the years. The Governor is to later dump Nyako for Atiku who thereafter joined the PDP.
With the lingering court case and the uncompromising stance of the two factions , resolving the intra path wrangling in the Adamawa APC that won a landslide victory in 2015 appears to be hanging in the balance.
