The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu, has said he is not a pathological liar as alleged by the Borno state government.
He was responding to comments by the Secretary to the Borno State Government, Ambassador Baba Ahmed, who had referred to Mu’azu as a pathological liar.
Mu’azu also said he would not join issues with the state government and that he was more concerned with the development of the country and to win the fight against terror in Nigeria. He said because of this, he would not join issues with Ahmed.
Reacting to publications in some newspapers, where he was described as a pathological liar by Ahmed, Mu’azu who handled the insult maturely, said rather than name-calling, what Nigerians needed now irrespective of party affiliation was to close rank so as to curtail the activities of the Boko Haram Sect.
Mu’azu said in a statement by his SA/ICT, Akin Oyegoke that “the attention of the office of the National Chairman of the PDP, Ahmadu Adamu Muazu, has been drawn to a press interview by the Secretary to the State Government of Borno State, Ambassador Baba Ahmed.”
“In an interview in which Ambassador Baba Ahmed denied the letter of advice from the Federal Ministry of Education advising the Government of Borno State and other states in the region because of security situation not to conduct WAEC or NECO Examination outside of Maiduguri, the Borno State Capital is a clear acceptance of the lopsided approach by the Government in Borno State to fight insurgency in the area.
“The National Chairman of the PDP ordinarily will not like to join issues with any Nigerian especially not with Ambassador Baba Ahmed but as an elder statesman and a stakeholder in this administration, we wish to state again that for us to win the fight against terror in Nigeria, we must all close ranks irrespective of party affiliation and heed to all popular advice from any agency of government to curtail the activities of the Boko Haram Sect.
“We wish to state again that other states in the region that adhered to this advice from WAEC and the Federal Ministry of Education were able to conduct WAEC/NECO in their States capital peacefully.”
