APC crisis: call for my expulsion pathetic, unfortunate mischief- Kente

Sylvanus Viashima, Jalingo

The gubernatorial aspirant of the All Progressives Congress APC in Taraba state Chief David Sabo Kente has described calls by a section of the party for his expulsion as pathetic, unfortunate mischief from people who do not have the interest of the party at heart.

Kente was reacting to a petition purportedly written by the executive of the party at Kente Ward in Wukari local government area of Taraba state where he hails calling for his expulsion over anti party activities.

The statement issued by Kente reads in part that, “the attention of the Chief David Sabo Kente campaign organization has been drawn to a petition written, purportedly by a group who call themselves officials of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kente Ward of Wukari local government area in Taraba state.

“For the sake of clarity and posterity, we make the following clarifications base on facts and figures and a true representation of things in the state chapter of the party for the past number of years when most of these power mongers were working with the opposition to suppress our party at all cost;

“First of all, it is important to state that Chief David Sabo Kente joined the APC since 2016 and has remained a strong party man since then. It is equally important to state the obvious that the purported petitioners are not the authentic officials of Kente ward as produced by the July 31, 2021 ward Congress of APC. It is worthy of note that these individuals parading themselves as officials of the party in Kente ward lost out in the ward Congress. Since the outcome of the Congress the group have accused Chief David Sabo Kente of been responsible for their political misfortunes. They have since turned into opposition and identified themselves with these desperate politicians from the zone.

“The sponsors of the petition is principally an APC senatorial aspirant from the southern zone and funded by the desperate governorship aspirant. We are also aware that the senatorial aspirant, who serves as errand boy for the governorship aspirant, came to wukari last week to hold a meeting with the fake kente Ward APC officials and gave them one Million Naira to write the trash called petition. The petitioners were recruited by a desperate APC governorship aspirant from the southern zone to tarnish the image of Chief Kente who has been regarded as stumbling block to the aspirations of the desperate politician. 

“It will sound not only funny but a figment of imagination for anybody to accuse Kente of either romancing or working for Governor Darius Ishaku of PDP . The duo who are like Cat and Dog cannot and have never at any time sat at a round table to discuss politics. On financial inducement, Kente says is laughable. He has been a successful businessman with his business interests scattered across Nigeria and West Africa. There is no doubt, Governor Darius and Kente have met twice in the last few years and all in official capacity as representative of the region at the Northeast Development Commission. 

“It is on record that Chief Kente has been funding APC in his home local government, Wukari and at the state level for the past six years. He had purchased several vehicles for the operations of the Party across Taraba state. I remained consistent in APC since 2016. He has spent hundreds of millions in pursuing his aspirations to govern the good people of Taraba state. Is it not ridiculous for such a person to be accused of anti-party?” He quarried.

He urged the leadership of the party and the party members to discard the petition and stay focused on the onerous task of positioning the party for victory ahead of 2023 general elections.
